Swirling Patterns Inspired At Coast
The op art undulations of these four gorgeous towels reminded designer Sarah Jackson of ever-changing tide pools that are seen at low tide along the southern California coast where she lives.
One thing she finds fascinating about the ocean is the way the color of the water seems to shift and change depending on the season, the time of day, and the weather.
Dive Right In!
Those variations are reflected in this set of generously-sized (18" x 26") kitchen towels woven with our 8/2 Aurora Earth100% unmercerized cotton yarns. The result is a set of richly colored towels that are reminiscent of the Pacific Ocean. You'll want to dive right in!
A Study in Color
You'll love how you can combine just seven colors in four different ways--two colors in the warp plus four different weft combinations to achieve such dazzling designs.
Sarah Jackson comments, "I loved weaving the towels and discovering how the interaction of the color combinations in both warp and weft impacted the cloth. I think you'll love weaving them, too!"
