Tea Towels


My mom gave me some of her old “vintage” tea towel calendars. I used some of them to make huipiles. Here’s Chiara modeling a tea towel huipil (unfortunately  she put it on backwards! Oh well).

above site is a MUST SEE!  Using vintage linen tea towels, with prints depicting scenes from places visited, from native animals to flowers, I bring together vibrant memories of travels in an upholstery collage. The decorative nature of the upholstered fabric covers yet accentuate the practical form of the chair, and the vibrant 50’s and 60’s colour pallet and 100% Irish Linen base make them uniquely appealing.
