After checking the local sources, I came up empty so now the online search begins. The pot holders available at the local sources were all thin and synthetic and seemed pricey for what they were. The kitchen towels were all synthetic as well which has caused me some grief in the past with the microwave (a little oil on a potato in the microwave).
Where do you find thick natural fiber pot holders and good quality natural fiber kitchen towels?
I'm willing to pay good money for good quality but, I'm not looking for some super premium product endorsed by some famous (or infamous) chef either.
