Love the design and I love how these towels soak up moisture! I can't tell they are seconds, they look perfect to me!

About

The Seeds of Chavah's Garden

A number of years ago I started painting my favorite recipes as gifts for friends——salad dressings, soups, my mother’s spicy guacamole recipe. I love painting vegetable portraits, capturing their colorful, quirky beauty in my unique style of watercolor painting. Then I remembered my grandmother’s fabulous flour sack tea towels and, in a moment of you-got-your-peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate inspiration, my business was born.

Flour sack fabric is 100% cotton but also has a special weave that makes it almost miraculously absorbent. It is luscious and practical, hence my passion for it. I wrote six or seven factories for samples before finding the real McCoy.

The process: once I finish designing and painting each image, I take it and the towels to my local screen printer who specializes in the four-color process. This process makes it look and feel like I’ve painted directly onto the towels.

Tea towels, a.k.a. dish towels, are a necessity. Everyone needs them. My tea towels’ deluxe flour sack fabric and vibrant colors make them feel like an indulgence.

I am also currently obsessed with Pinterest, so if you too are pinterested, feel free to take a gander: http://www.pinterest.com/SydneyCdeBaca/boards/.

    I love gardening, cooking, eating, sharing all this with friends, and painting. I was beyond thrilled when I discovered Etsy and realized I could share this love with even more people. Enjoy!

Production partners

  • Bob Mullins, Moonphoto

    Seattle, WA

    Bob Mullins is an artist in his own right. His scans of my artwork shine because he takes tremendous care to make sure the watercolor paper texture doesn't turn my whole image gray. I cannot recommend him enough to serious artists.

  • Classic Impressions

    Seattle, WA

    The Classic Impressions team in Seattle are masters of the four color screen printing process, which is trickier than spot screen printing. We collaborate at every stage to create these gorgeous towels that look like I painted directly on them.

  • Goodey Studio

    Edmonds, WA

    We decided to partner with Kaitlin of Goodey Studio, fellow Seattle maker, for printing Chavah's Garden mugs. We work together on proofing and color, and I've seen my mugs getting baked and cooled. A local, Seattle-based partnership.

  • Jeff Coulson, Ideaworks NW

    Renton, WA

    Jeff too is an artist in his own right. My tea towels images wouldn't be so bright, cheerful, and sturdy without Jeff's work. He catches the details and colors, making it all shine on the tea towel. A great screen printer.
