I came upon the Indian print textiles of Bungalow in the marvelous home décor shop ivo & co in Barcelona, and brought a tea towel home with me. It hasn’t touched a dish yet, since most tea towels suffer a messy fate in this house—too quickly stained with tea or tomato sauce.

This one is moving about on table tops far from the kitchen, and spent a little time draped over the back of a chair in the living room. Mine is the center design shown in the group of blue teatowels above (only mine is green). Here are more of the textile collections designed by Minna Hildebrandt for her company Bungalow, based in Denmark.
