Cecilie Manz serve graphic lines for the kitchen

The chequered tea towel is almost an archetypal symbol of kitchen textiles. RAIN is Cecilie Manz’s interpretation of the classic, chequered tea towels and consists of three different designs. From a simple version with a single line in each direction to several lines, and a more varied chequered expression.

I see them as three old aunts. They are interrelated and similar, yet completely different,” says Cecilie Manz about the three designs, each of which is named after its number of lines – 1, 3 and 20 lines distributed across the three beautiful tea towels.

RAIN is woven with 100% linen – a material Cecilie Manz is very enthusiastic about. She has a penchant for the natural linen colour, which here is woven with a white thread to create a vibrant and varicoloured surface. The surface is joined by Manz’s elegant lines in the classic kitchen blue colour that results in a beautiful interplay between the soft and the graphic. A beautiful design in all its simplicity, which looks elegant when placed together in a row or by itself.

Linen is also a material that can go either way. It can be stiff and may seem almost royal, but it can also be wrinkled and casual. Linen is a strong material that can withstand wear and work. The material is also perfect for the kitchen as linen has superior drying properties.  

RAIN 1, 3 and 20, size 50 x 80 cm, costs EUR 19 per piece, and is sold in Georg Jensen Damask profile stores across the country and on www.georgjensen-damask.com. For the nearest retailer, please call 75 52 27 00.
About Damask

Georg Jensen Damask is a culture bearer within Danish design tradition as well as the history of craft. Our history is built on proud weaving traditions since 1756, but members of the family behind Georg Jensen Damask have been weavers all the way back to the 1500s.  The weaving is based on a classic design with a focus on functionality and quality both back then and today.

Throughout times we have worked together with some of the most acknowledged weavers, designers and architects, for example Arne Jacobsen, Cecilie Manz, Andreas Engesvik, Margrethe Odgaard and Nanna Ditzel. Furthermore, we have been involved in several projects with the Royal Danish Court and we are proud to call ourselves Purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.
