Sometimes all it takes is a spark of warm color to turn the kitchen into a happier place. Especially if that spark of warm color comes from a fall tea towels by San Francisco-based Studiopatro. Christina Weber, the force behind the design company Studiopatro
believes in making useful and beautiful textiles, and has focused much of her business around her tea-towels. Like everything she designs and crafts, they're hand-printed and sustainable. In this year's fall collection, you'll find nature-inspired themes (leaves, leaves, leaves!) and of course, some stripes.
What we so love about Studiopatro's tea towels are the notion that they don't have to be just kitchen towels. Weber encourages taking them to the next level: think tea towels as placemats, table decor, wall hangings, or even gift wrapping. We're inspired and couldn't wait to share.
