Creative Ways to Use a Tea Towel

Posted on October 23, 2016 | 0 Comments

A few years ago we discovered the most beautiful tea towels from Studiopatró, a lovely San Francisco-based company. This "Piece of Cake" tea towel made such a sweet and eco-chic gift in a past Celebrate gift package, that we knew we had to bring the brand back to our shop.    

Our all-new Just Because gift package features a "Life is Delicious" tea towel from Studiopatró that is perfect for all of your fall gifting needs. It makes a lovely hostess gift, Thinking of You, or simply Just Because.
