A week or so ago, @thegreengal tweeted about a new venture in her handmade business – tea towels. Not only was this another opportunity for me to buy something pretty but also to support someone in their business…at least that’s what I told my OH when I ordered one of the towels from The Green Gables!
It arrived two days later, which I think is excellent service. And it came wrapped so lovely. I was really impressed. The towel is 100% organic & designed and printed in the UK. It was £10 & the cotton has a lovely soft feel to it. I think this is quite unusual for a high end tea towel. I have bought good quality tea towels in the past, some cheaper, some more expensive. But I have been disappointed with how they feel & how they dry up the dishes. I’ve often felt cheated as I’ve wanted something pretty to hang up in my kitchen but have been annoyed at how poorly they’ve done the job.
I am glad to report that this is not the case with this tea towel. It is excellent at the job it is supposed to do & matches my kitchen perfectly! I am so happy with it. I cannot wait to see what Gabrielle does next. I did enter the competition to win a tea towel on her blog so if you haven’t entered that you most definitely should. Though I have to say that I am still hoping I win. I wouldn’t mind another one to use while my one is in the wash!
