Edible Schoolyard Project Tea Towel
Please join the wait list for this variant.
Tea towels that do much more than dishes! Inspired by The Edible Schoolyard Project, Jann Cheifitz, founder of Lucky Fish, designed these super absorbent tea towels and hand-printed them on a traditional flour sack cotton. They feature a playful universe of images drawn from nature. These only get softer and more absorbent with each washing as the cotton blooms. 10% of each tea towel sold benefits The Edible Schoolyard program.
ABOUT LUCKY FISH
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Lucky Fish was founded by South African native, Jann Cheifitz 10 years or so ago. Inspired by imagery and a color palette reminiscent of growing up in South Africa, Jann designs and handprints everything from simple tea towels to T-shirts, pillows, and novelty accessories.
ABOUT THE EDIBLE SCHOOLYARD PROJECT
Located at Martin Luther King Jr Middle School in Berkeley, CA, The Edible Schoolyard Project was founded by Alice Waters more than 25 years ago with the goal of teaching students the values of nourishment, land stewardship, and community. The program brought about change in the Berkeley California school system by creating a curriculum and merging it with the existing public school syllabus. The Edible Schoolyard Project has since expanded, grown, and inspired organizations and organic kitchen classrooms throughout the country.
Dimensions: 28" x 28"
The quality of the towel is fantastic & I love cotton towels. Love the design & supporting the Edible Schoolyard Project. The color was not what I expected. In the photos is appeared to be a bit more of a red ochre toned brown. It is really a very dark, flat brown which I think takes away from the design. The grey color may have been a better choice.
