We had to make these. A practical staple for the past 70 years here, the tea towel has over the last century established itself firmly as an essential piece of domestic design.
Featuring our own woodland creatures that we share our woods with: Deer, fox, geese, chipmunk, beaver, raccoon.
“In the mid-20th century, dish-towel designs were updated for the modern household, thanks to improvements in screenprinting techniques and colorfast dyes. Mostly made of cotton or linen, tea towels of the 1940s and '50s often featured patterns with bright floral shapes, cartoon animals, popular foods, and travel themes. The humble tea towel even eventually made it into the Museum of Modern Art’s “Good Design” exhibition of 1950, and her dish towels became a coveted addition to any Mid-Century Modern kitchen.”- Collector’s Weekly.
