Is there life in outer space? If there is, we'd be the first to know with our Very Large Array lining the plains of San Agustin, New Mexico. The VLA, as we locals call it, is one of the most powerful ground-based telescopes in the world, connecting a series of antenna dishes. Its sheer size will astound you. This design is well-loved here because the VLA is quintessentially New Mexican.

All our prints are pulled by hand, and we use only environmentally-friendly, water-based inks. This makes the printing process a little harder, but we think it’s worth it.

Our base fabric for these tea towels is a hemp/organic cotton mix. The towels are incredibly absorbent, and with each wash they get softer. There will be some shrinkage in the length with the first wash, but this brings the weave in tighter for better absorbency and an old world feel.

The towels are individually sewn by us, and include a contrasting ribbon loop in the back for easy hanging.

Our customers often tell us that they can’t bring themselves to actually use our towels for drying dishes. They use them to line bread baskets, to put under serving dishes, or simply to hang in their kitchen, unused. We believe these are pieces of functional art that should be enjoyed daily. Don’t be afraid -- they will take the wear and last a long while.
