Moveable Feast Shucking Towel
A young Ernest Hemingway penned perhaps the most famous sentence about oysters in American literature the the opening pages of A Moveable Feast, centered around his life in
"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans."
This evocative passage has been handlettered by calligrapher Janice Reyes of Handmade Letters, and screen printed by our friends at Brine Hound. Great as hand towels to be used in the kitchen, as napkins at the dining table, as hand protection when shucking your own oysters, or even as gift wrap.
