It’s funny… the designs that I do for Anthropologie often veer far from my personal aesthetic, but they always make me so proud to say I did them. Actually, I think that is one of the things makes me a good designer: the ability to separate my own tastes from what my customer prefers. These dishtowels are a perfect example of the two influences. The print has an ethnic sensibility that mimics block-printed artwork, while the fabric is a super soft open weave. I personally am drawn to the top-notch material (I’m serious, you really need to go to a store and feel these!) and to the bold stripes of color, whereas the Anthropologie look is all about the printed artwork. I am so happy with the balance that these dishtowels achieve!
During the design process, these dishtowels were so popular, we decided to add a tablecloth as well. As soon as the sample came in, I was over the moon for it! Can’t you imagine sultry summer nights sipping ginger beer and playing cards around that table?
