when it comes to buying things during tough economic times, one of the areas in which i allow myself a little wiggle room is tea towels. these small squares of fabric make me happy because they let me indulge my need to have something colorful and new in my home without spending an arm and a leg. so when i heard from christina weber of studiopatró about her new line of graphic linen tea towels and aprons, i was hooked. not only did she embrace my favorite kitchen color (orange!), but she included some really lovely typography in her collection. christina’s tea towels and aprons are all for sale on her website, but she also has a really fun section of her site called “use me” where she displays clever ways to use her work in your home. whether you belt your tea towel for an insta-apron or sew a cute window seat from the fabric, she’s got a whole slew of really beautifully shot ideas to check out. click here to view (and shop) the full collection online. thanks christina!
