We’ve been thinking about it, and you know, tea towels are not just for drying the dishes. They can do lots of other things too. Yes, they can multitask. Heck, they are the masters of multi-teatowel-tasking! Here are a couple of jolly good ideas for what else to do with your tea towels:
Multi-teatowel-tasking #1: Tie one around your waist with a belt as a makeshift apron.
Multi-teatowel-tasking #2: Frame it! This is our Stig tea towel framed in a readymade frame I bought at Country Road.
Multi-teatowel-tasking #3: Use a tea towel as a tray cloth. The 100% cotton hopsack is very absorbant, and pretty, too
(especially our new ‘meadow’ colourway in the Summer Weeds print).
Multi-teatowel-tasking #4: Wrap it! The Japanese art of furoshiki (wrapping objects in fabric) is a perfect opportunity to not only give two gifts simultaneously, but also to get people to marvel at your ingenuity and dexterity.
Find an insane variety of Skinny laMinx tea towels for sale in our shop in Cape Town, and also online in ZAR, and online in US$.
PS: Check in here again later this week for a tea towel furoshiki tutorial.
