Admittedly, potholders are something of a lesser-known cousin of the oven mitt. Undoubtedly, countless arguments between senior citizens were made as to the superiority of either a potholder or an oven mitt. While the deep mysteries of which appliance is superior will not be answered today, what can be said is that not every potholder is made equal. These ones, in particular, are handmade with attention to detail, by one Emalee Deather. Not to be outclassed in the undoubtedly competitive sphere of handmade potholders, Miss Deather creates potholders with 100% Cotton for superior protection against heat, as modern synthetic fibers will melt when faced with particularly temperamental ovens. For added style, a leather tag is added to give that little something to let you know that this potholder is not to be trifled with.
