Beet Tea Towel
Beet Tea Towel
Everyone's favorite: BEETS! Illustrated, designed and printed by Vanessa on certified organic cotton sourced from Mehara Shaw, a Fair Trade Federation member company in India with sustainable practices and cradle-to-cradle production!
Beets are one of my favorite vegetables of all time. Illustrated, designed and printed by Vanessa with purple ink on organic natural flour sack.
The organic cotton towels were produced by Mehera Shaw, which is a pretty incredible company. The following is an excerpt from their website:
