Enjoy the Sardine pattern
The sardines cross in a staggered pattern on parallel lines and show their silver and shiny flank on a linen-colored background. The games of fish scales are found on the navy blue border lined with complementary colors. The word sardines written with outdated fonts gives a vintage side to these large towels. It will creep into your kitchen with humor and elegance.
The Marseille story!
Do you know the story of the sardine so big that it clogged the port of Marseille? This is a true story dating back to the 18th century, that an unfortunate spelling distorted. In reality, a frigate "Sartine" named after the Minister of the Navy under Louis XVI, sank at the entrance to the Port de Marseille, in 1780. His captain was killed, there was a navigation error that failed the boat on rocks. As the ship was very large, this accident resulted in blocking any entry or exit from the Vieux-Port for a long time. The Marseillais of course amplified this story when telling it, and had fun to change the "t" of Sartine in "d", to deviate on the sardine.
