Last summer I designed a tea towel for Lokal Kollektion. This kitchen towel got it’s inspiration from my earlier art work “True Colors” I made back in 2016. I was also really keen on having the opportunity to work with Lapuan Kankurit on this project. The towel was woven in Lapua, Finland and it’s 100% linnen. photos: Katja Hagelstam / Lokal
