To some of us tea towels might seem more fancy than they actually are. In general they are used to dry dishes, but they could also be spread over a tea tray or used to cover warm bread and pastry to prevent heat loss.
They are rarely something that we pay attention to, but in general we use them almost everyday. We rarely run the dishwasher, so the towels become very useful and help limit the paper towel usage. Our vintage set is great, but embarrassing when we have guests over for dinner. It has been abused for many years now and we would love to replace it with something new. Recently we came across the new designs from Flock Home, Bay Area based company, and we love their selection of the tea towels, napkins, pillow shams, and more. Jump below for a closer look.
All products are made of natural eco-friendly linen or cotton and the various designs offer a great selection to choose from. These are all hand-printed in Oakland California using non-toxic dyes. They are also able to do custom projects which could be really fun, especially for dinner napkins or pillow shams.
You can get Flock Home's products at a few different Bay Area locations (listed on the website
), but also on their Etsy site.
