RUSHdesign was born when Linda Rush, our founder became interested in a silk screening class offered near her mountain home. As her first project, she created the image of a Dala Horse, a traditional Scandinavian wooden toy from Dalarna, Sweden, a symbol of her family's heritage.  This screenprint was first used to make colorful pot holders, which were taken into a store by her mother. The store placed an order and RUSHdesign was in business.

We began by selling to, and supporting small boutiques and gift shops around the country, offering exclusively to them, a product that was charming, inexpensive and which sold quickly!  More significantly, it developed into a business that would flourish in Linda's studio and allowed her to stay home with her children as they grew.


Old Friends Are Sometimes the Best
How to incorporate the quality and charm of a bygone era into a new and marketable product?   It's our Grandmother's old friend - the Flour Sack Towel!

The homemakers of yesteryear cherished their used flour sacks and transformed them into everything imaginable: quilts, aprons, dresses, baby clothes, sunbonnets, undergarments, even bathing suits! Technology has not been able to improve upon the qualities of the old fashioned flour sack towels: their absorbency, their ability to make glassware and dishes sparkle, their durability. Quickly it was decided to segue into a broader category of kitchen linens with our new and unique line.


The Original Flour Sack Towel!
Our Flour Sack Towels soon blossomed into beautiful works of art, as it was discovered we could inspire our family of artists to draw, watercolor, and dream their pictures onto the soft cloth. Most of our design ideas come from collaborations between the Rushes,our extended family, the shopkeepers and our customers (whom we always encourage to approach us with designs they'd like to see!)

RUSHdesign was the first to offer these original designs on 100% cotton towels, which are printed with environmentally safe lead-free inks on a generous size of 38" x 22".


RUSHdesign Today
Over the years, the business office has moved from the Santa Cruz hills, to Hawaii, then to Southern California. We are now based in the Northern California cities of Trinidad and Eureka, the heart of Redwood Country

Today, our line is carried in kitchen shops, nurseries and garden centers, country and folk shops, museums, and specialty shops across the US.

Our customers use these towels in their homes much the same way as our grandmothers did -as curtains, place mats, pillowcases, bags and sachets, children's clothing, gift wrap, and of course, in the kitchen. We are grateful to all of our customers, and thank them wholeheartedly for their patronage: they've truly made us what we are today!

We at RUSHdesign are intent on carrying out the same kind of legacy in our business as is exemplified in our product: Quality, Beauty, Longevity, Integrity. We hold these values up as a commitment to you, our customers, and old dear friends.

We'd love to hear from you!
