I discovered Maja Brogos’ Tikoli tea towel collection this evening after a madcap free-association search for something beautiful and new to post. I love her designs as well as her advocacy of everyday objects:

“Yes, they are just kitchen towels,” she says. ” but I’ve always found something profound in the mundane. That coffee mug or spoon at breakfast is a part of our life each day, a personal effect. From the standpoint of anthropology, the objects we surround ourselves with, the things that make us comfortable, say much more about who we are as a culture than what can be found in a museum. The Tikoli product line is really just about injecting a little bit of wonder and beauty into the everyday.”
