We are packing up and moving back to the South! I will always be a California girl; born and raised! Our dreams of going off grid and living off the land can be made reality in another place. I will cover the move and future plans in an upcoming post. For now, a review on Patch Design Studio Organic kitchen towels for our new home!

Ya’ll know I am constantly digging up quality green products. I recently found Patch Design Studio designed by artist Heather Mithoefer from Chattanooga, TN. Featured in Taste of the South and Southern Living Magazine, Patch Design Studio offers organic housewares linens including dish towels, cloth napkins and pillows, as well a baby onsie line. Each product is hand-painted using hand-carved blocks, with only water-based paints.  Inspired but not limited to tradition southern design. Here are two examples of their work with the organic, sustainably sourced dish towels retail $19.00 each. Note: They have an intentional distress look. These are new.

My great-grandmother always used dish towels as opposed to paper towels. She had a drawer full of them, each one a different print. So these are reminiscent for me. Since I buy most of our stuff second-hand, rarely do we have a complete set of anything. I prefer that things aren’t “matchy-matchy”. I appreciate the individuality in each Patch Design Studio piece and will be using these in our home. I don’t know the material content but it feels and looks like it contains hemp which adds texture and durability. I adore the anchor print on other pieces they offer. You can see for yourself here:
