A Print is a Print is a Print. Or is it?

In May of 1914, Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons was published, and, by coincidence, Stein's work has offered us a great deal of inspiration over the past month. In fact, we've just rolled out the first of our Stein inspired creations, a set of four cotton flour sack towels, each one hand screen printed with a different fragment from the "Food" section of the aforementioned book:

The fragments printed are:

ASPARAGUS. Asparagus in a lean in a lean to hot. This makes it art and it is wet wet weather wet weather wet.

CHICKEN. Pheasant and chicken, chicken is a peculiar third.


PASTRY. Cutting shade, cool spades and little last beds, make violet, violet when.

SALAD. It is a winning cake.

These, and more, can be found in the new "Tea Towels" section of the shop.
