I Want This

New tea towels from Cotton & Flax.


Without fail, every time Erin from Cotton & Flax releases a new design, I want it. I already own several Cotton & Flax tea towels (Brushstroke, Black Plus and this limited edition beauty), and now I’m going to have to add at one more to my collection! Or maybe two more. Gimme all the tea towels.

Like all of Erin’s other textiles, Grid and Zig Zag (also available as a pillowoh my) are cut, printed and sewn in her LA studio. They’re made of a flax linen that is just the right softness, perfectly absorbent and durable. My Cotton & Flax tea towels have gone through the wash dozens of times (I air-dry mine, even though she says they can be tumbled dry), and they still have their shape and have held up beautifully. They look great in the background of baking photos, too!

p.s. Erin has been kind enough to offer free US shipping on all Cotton & Flax products to D16 readers through March 29th. Use the code DOORSIXTEEN at checkout. (Thanks, Erin!!)

p.p.s. There’s a great interview with Erin about being a business owner over at Design*Sponge today. Woo hoo!

    Great designs, so clean.

    Wonderful having you back to read again. Made my Monday morning & now my Tuesday.

    What can I say? Just a big Anna fan. Doesn’t much matter what you write about — I’ll happily read it.

    These towels are so cool!
    Like Carol, I’m glad you’re back, too 🙂 . Your posts are always a source of inspiration and fun to read. And you have this knack of finding the best (quality) IKEA products before they get discontinued. Ha, I’m totally starting to sound like a fangirl. Before I get too shy now, I was wondering if you have some feedback regarding upholstery and a vintage sofa we just purchased (http://www.nearnoise.com/vintage-sofa-thoughts/). Actually, I’d value everyone’s ideas!

    I’ll run off now to check out your other posts, I’m behind on reading!

    I love her stuff, too! Finally ordered myself a brushstroke tea towel and it makes me happy every time I walk into my kitchen.
