The Swedish dish cloth – Environmentally friendly and compostable

Teko Tryck was the first company in the world to introduce design/profile printing on dish cloths. It was in 1949 that engineer Curt Lindqvist in Norrköping, Sweden invented the dish cloth (sponge cloth). It absorbs 15 times its own weight. Since it’s made of cellulose from FSC forest and cotton it is also compostable. The dish cloth has evolved during the years, from a simple everyday product in the 50s to a design product used around the world. With your logotype, design or text the sponge cloth will be a holder of your message for a long time. Everybody needs it and it will be used for a long time! We print sponge cloths with high quality, precision and richness in details. We offer small and large series as well.
