I’m a lady that is fond of color and unique pieces of art. Handmade items, in which were made with care and love! when I spotted turt&elephants hand-stamped & hand-dyed tea towels on Etsy- I feel in love!
These one of a kind tea towels are 28X28 in. and are made from 100% cotton.Each towel is hand-dyed in a turmeric dye bath. After dyeing and rinsing, the towel is also soaked in vinegar to help preserve the color. Hand dyeing is slightly unpredictable and can produce a varied, almost tie-dye effect and this is one of my favorite things about these towels! Also, Emily, owner of t&e explains that these tea towels can be used to for other things than drying dishes, and I am one to second that motion! While her fun and funky tea towels are sure to brighten ones time spent drying dishes, I have found my little enjoy making these into their very own capes! They are just the right size, too!On another note, I think these beautiful tea towels would also make a nice piece of wall art, as tapestry of some sort. With items like this, it is SO easy to get creative! I am also fond of the paper wrap this tea-towel was sent in- a recycled trader joe’s sack, with their cute logo on the outside- as you can see. Maybe its just me- but I appreciate little details like these 🙂
