Locavore: Tea towels celebrate vintage Seattle scenery

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

WEB-SC-SN-B-tea-towels3Show your hometown pride with a Seattle neighborhood tea towel handmade by local artist Trilby Hainstock of Oliotto.

Hainstock paints original vintage-inspired designs, then screen-prints them with water-based ink onto crisp 100-percent-cotton flour-sack towels.

Souvenir-style scenes pay homage to what makes each neighborhood unique. The Space Needle and Fremont Troll make appearances, as do the International District’s dragon poles, Sunset Bowl, moms pushing baby strollers around Green Lake and the ubiquitous Utilikilt.

The towels are 28 by 28 inches and make a lovely housewarming gift or addition to your kitchen.

$20 at etsy.com/shop/OLIOTTO and Paper Hammer, downtown
