Our very own tea towels

—By Heather

Don’t you love when you have a secret to share? We’re pretty excited around here to spill the beans about our newest product. Several months ago we started talking about the idea of partnering with a local artist and printer to produce some custom tea towels for the store. Today we are thrilled to be sharing the results of that collaboration with you.

Many of you may already be familiar with Melissa Rau’s exceptional work through her lovely store, Red Bird Studio. Mel is a talented artist and a loyal customer of Bolt’s so it was natural to think of her right away when we began the brainstorming process. And it turned out that the delicate style of Mel’s work paired beautifully with our orginal vision. I was pretty thrilled when we met to look at the first round of drawings!

The finished artwork made its way down the street to the Make House, where Nathan Reimer hand printed it onto 200 towels. How fortunate we are to have so much talent right here on our very own street!

These towels are 100% cotton and are available in two colors: bright white and creamy natural white. They will be available for purchase starting this Friday, April 12th—the first day of our Big Sale—and would make excellent Mother’s Day gifts or souvenirs.

We really hope you like them as much as we do!
