Every place you’ve lived has helped you become who you are. Why not show it off? Hometown custom towels from Coast & Cotton beautifully depict the love of where you’re from, where you raised your family, or where you call home. Founder Sydney Hewitt graduated from Auburn University with a degree in industrial design. She and her husband, Will, were a military family and moved regularly, giving Sydney the idea for designs that celebrate states. Creating these nostalgia-channeling tea towels turned into a full-time job, and Coast & Cotton was born. Simple yet sophisticated, each is Made in the USA from 100% flour sack cotton. Surprise a friend with a hometown gift, or hang one from your own oven door. Absorbent and durable, they’re meant to be “used, enjoyed, and displayed proudly.”

    There is no option for Washington, DC or the District of Columbia. It's the Nation's Capital, we pay taxes, we're citizens, we vote for president (even if we're denied equal representation in Congress). It's insulting and I'm terminating my Grommet subscription.

    On another note....can we talk about how beautiful these towels are? If you listen carefully you can hear prospective married couples adding this to their registry by the thousands!

    Wow 30" x 30" is quite large. Are there two product lines or one? Love my state is quite different from hometown heart. For example, San Diego and San Francisco are hometowns, as are Amarillo and Houston, and Chicago and Springfield, and Monroe and Marquette, and Springfield and Hyannis, etc ;-). Nice idea, I will check your website again in the future.

    Thanks Paula, glad you like them! They are quite large--super absorbent too! Hometown Heart and Love My State are two separate lines. The Love My State designs have each state's official icons around an outline of the state with a navy heart in the center, and the Hometown Heart designs are drawings of each state with a heart in the center of the state. Please let us know if you have any other questions...thanks for stopping by!
