I just discovered this amazing store after spotting one of their fabulous tea towels as wrapping for a bottle of wine on one of my favorite tumblrs - Crush Cul de Sac. I decided to explore their website and let's just say I wasn't disappointed.

Studio Patro's tea towels are 100% European linen and all designs are handprinted one-by-one, with water-based inks and an ecologically sound citrus-soy cleanup - I'm a sucker for anything that looks this good and doesn't wreak havoc on the environment.
The designs are beautifully simple and oh those muted colours! Based in my local SF they are sure to be on my visitation list! (www.studiopatro.com/ )
Studio Patro tea towels $24/each
