Swedish dishcloth: Lucia Cat / Lussekatt

This picture of a “Lucia cat” is playing with words. It’s a combination of the old tradition of Lucia coming to light up the Swedish homes in December in her white long dress and with candles in her hair and the name of the specific saffron buns Swedes eat during whole december, called “Lucia cats” or “Lucia buns”.


A Swedish Dishcloth is a dream to use and sustainable, ecofriendly and COMPOSTABLE!

The Swedish Dishcloth was invented in 1949 by engineer Curt Lindqvist in Norrköping, Sweden and has become one of the absolute must-haves in Swedish every-day life. With its’ unique absorbing capacity and smoothness it comfortably sweeps all kinds of surfaces clean and dry in a wink.

Instruction for use:
Wet it, wring it, swipe, rinse it, wring it, and swipe and enjoy the STREAKLESS surfaces! Repeat until all is clean. Then rinse it again, wring it and pose it to dry well aired.
