Each launch give us an opportunity to partner with talented artists and makers, and our Fall '14 product line includes a handful of incredible designers, with Christina Weber of Studiopatró headlining the list. Christina's tea towels are hand-printed one-by-one, using ecologically friendly water-based inks. The linen is the finest medium-weight linen available, and is naturally sustainable and luxurious.
Not only did we include a few Studiopatró tea towels in our product assortment, but we created a beautiful art printfrom one of Christina's inspiring designs. Both pieces compliment our aesthetic beautifully and fit nicely into our line of kitchen products.
We recently caught up with Christina in San Francisco, and we enjoyed learning more about her design process, business goals, and passion for her craft. Here's a snapshot of what we learned...
