The Art of Tea (Towels)

My globe-trotting mother-in-law collects tea towels from all the places she visits, so I’m surprised she hasn’t landed at the Third Drawer Down which makes truly inspired artist-designed linens that would hang perfectly on any wall in my house. The Australian company recently launched new looks in tea towels featuring designs by emerging artists. The collection includes artprons, artkerchiefs, lapkins and bubkins. Their promise? To help answer the question: what is art and where do you find it? And the philosophy? To place art in the most domestic of circumstances. And if you’re not sure how to do that, www.thirddrawerdown.com offers a whimsical list of “things to do” with your tea towel, including my favorite: get someone else to dry your dishes with it.
