I’m a weirdo and love kitchen linens. Some gals love handbags and shoes – I love me some tea-towels. I have an abundance that have countless uses: hanging as art, set beneath house plants, or used for their actual purpose in the kitchen.
I also love supporting businesses and artists who try their best to minimize their environmental impact by choosing to use products that are friendlier for our fragile Earth than alternatives that are more commonly used.
One such company is Kei and Molly Textiles. Namesakes Kei and Molly both have extensive backgrounds in printing and design all of their adorable hand-printed kitchen-linens using non-toxic, water-soluble paints.
The designs and colors, printed on 100% natural fibers, are often evocative of the vibrant desert landscape and cultural scenes of New Mexico, where Kei and Molly are based. Others depict seasonal themes or simple messages like “Save the Bees” (which I stole from my father to keep for myself and is in featured image for this post).
Since we’re coming up on the holiday shopping season, I think these would make great little gifts – especially for someone moving into a new home or as a little somethin’-somethin’ in a Christmas stocking. If you want to buy me something, I’ll take ’em all! Check out their Etsy shop!
