Van Doesburg Alphabet Tea Towel

If you’re a fan of typography, you might recognize this sans-serif typeface based on Theo van Doesburg’s orignal designs for an alphabet in 1919. Isn’t it strange how something almost designed a century ago still feels current?

100% Cotton.

Tea Towels, Third Drawer Down®: A Piece of Tea (2005)

A few people have emailed us about Third Drawer Down®, and pretty much the only reason there hasn’t been a post until now is because it’s difficult to choose just one to highlight. They have made common objects such as aprons, tea towels and kercheifs into usable art and I know there’s quite a few I would frame. Also, keep in mind these would be excellent gifts for anyone who has a kitchen (which is almost everyone).

“By placing art into the most domestic of circumstances, Third Drawer Down® products promote an ongoing dialogue between art and everyday life, whilst promoting the work of International Artists and Designers.”
