All SIP towels are designed by hand, 100 percent organic cotton and come in a variety of prints, including California poppy-strewn vistas and gossiping magpies perched in a tree.
So, the next time you go to dry your hands or wipe off some dishes, remember to take a sip of
Pinot, savor the small stuff, and spread a little love. sipgoods.com.
