Eco-Eye Candy: Le Viette Organic Cotton ‘Dessert’ Towels


I am officially in love. Today, I found a company that combines two of the things I crave most: dessert and decorating. Le Viette makes the most beautiful, delectable-looking towels I’ve ever seen! Their organic cotton and bamboo towels are folded, rolled and otherwise cajoled into dessert-like shapes, complete with fruit adorning the tops. If you’ve ever admired diaper cakes, you’ll love these!


There are rolls, cakes, and even cups of ice cream. These would make a beautiful housewarming or shower gift — once you explain to the recipient that the delicious slice of chocolate cake like Anges de Sucre cake in front of her is really a hand towel, that is. And the best part? They are less than $10 apiece, so you can make a huge impact with your unique, green gift without spending a lot of money.

Am I the only one who’s drooling?

Why It’s Green:

  • Towels made of organic cotton and bamboo
  • Towels are never bleached or treated with chemicals

Price: $7 to 8/ea.
