Looking for a creative way to wrap your homemade gifts? San Francisco-based Studiopatró makes hand-printed tea towels, market bags, and aprons that are pretty enough to give on their own or tied around a box of cookies. Christina Weber runs the design collective, and she describes the "people behind the cloth" as "friends and collaborators who cut, print, sew, photograph, and generally lend a hand." These really feel like humble kitchen cloths that have been attended to as if they were canvases — palettes are balanced, simple, and cohesive. Christine says the designs stem from her "fascination with leaves, pattern, words and color." The single-minded focus on utilitarian textiles that are small enough to be hand-printed means that every piece is crafted with care. Because these are hand-printed, prices aren't cheap. Tea towels start at $22, aprons at $48, and market bags at $92 for 2. You can buy them online through studiopatro.com.
