Even the potholders can be delicious

Potholders or oven gloves are usually too stiff and covered with scratchy, unpleasant, and unattractive material.

After years of this perhaps we give in to the inevitability of upleasantness.

Imagine a potholder that feels good in your hand? That’s soft enough to grip with. That looks gorgeous?

Suede.

This was the original material used for this purpose, and now a few people are again making potholders and oven gloves from it.

In Europe, look for Dutch Deluxes or Hay. Bulthaup has stopped making them.

In the US, try Ernst or March.
