Domestic Science: Studiopatro Tea Towels

October 20, 2009 9:45 PM

San Francisco art director and designer Christina Weber has just launched an inspiring line of tea towels under the name of Studiopatro (shorthand for "pattern studio"). Drawing on the talents of local silk screeners (who use only water-based inks), seamstresses, and friends, Weber produces tea towels and aprons in simple, bold patterns; available directly from Studiopatro.
