Our potholders make it easy for you to carry your pots, and insulate your hands, thanks to their extremely durable and heat proof silver cloth backing. Aside from their functionality, these potholders can also add to the decor of your kitchen, as they all feature Alice's original artwork in a variety of designs. Whether you're going for a country kitchen look or a vintage European feel, these potholders can add a small, but effective accent to your room. They also go extremely well with Alice's aprons and spiced mug mats, giving your home a custom tailored appearance. All of our potholders are machine washable. Proudly made in the USA!
