Inspired by the Lake

I am fortunate to live near one of the largest bodies of water in the United States. The Great Lake Michigan is an amazing presence that coexists among the frenetic urban environment of Chicago. While I would love to say I walk to the lake daily, sadly, I am often too consumed with the demands of daily life, especially during the short days of winter. But, as spring seems to be on the horizon here in Chicago, I look forward to visiting this beautiful body of water and watching the color palette change minute by minute depending upon the weather. While I await these treasured moments, I fondly remember previous times when I have been able to stroll along the shoreline and look into the horizon as I weave them into an everyday object known as the dish/tea towel. This is the first draft of a simple block design I created and future towels will include more undulated blocks in the design, but this was my first draft experimentation in years. If you are a weaver and new to computer design drafting, feel free to connect as I am always eager to help out!

In the meantime, these towels are made from 100% cotton, are very durable, and will hopefully remind me and others of warmer and slower days where your mind can wander off into the horizon. Feel free to check these one-of-a-kind towels in the Shop today!
