Everybody needs tea towels, right? Certainly a frequently used item in my household- I have two going at once- and as such in great demand. I wash them frequently (kitchen germs kinda freak me out) and so I like to have lots as there are always some in the wash.
I picked up some great tea towels recently from EcoDownunder, they were on sale ($10 for 4). They are nice and thick and are a gorgeous weave. Available in several colours to match your decor, I couldn't recommend them more highly. They are pictured here with some delicious Dandi spoons.
