Tipped off by Time Out's Check Out section (p.39) and recognizing the patterns from an Etsy Scavenger we pulled together last month, we thought these Spring-tastic kitchen towels were worth revisiting.

Designed by Yuko Uemura of PataPri, the hand-printed linen towels just scream love and joy in the kitchen. We'd be tempted to grab a few if we hadn't just (not) splurged on plain ones from IKEA (for 50 cents each).

We think these would make a lovely housewarming gift, a gift for a party host(ess) or a great choice for furoshiki, the Japanese art of wrapping gifts in fabric.

Available online for $14.
