One of our favorite things to do around the tiny red barn is work with other artists. Here is the first tea towel from our collaboration with Brandie Lee. Brandie is a hopeful idealist and creative soul in Nashville, TN. She delights in creating work that celebrates both form and function. 

Follow Brandie on Instagram (@birdsflyover) to see her work. You can also order handmade paper prints of this image from her Etsy shop.

Our heavyweight towels measure about 30”x30” and are printed by hand in a tiny red barn in Georgia. The fabric for our tea towels and napkins are a premium 58/58 thread count cotton with solid hemming on four sides. That means they stand up to repeated washings and iron smooth for when you have company. Our clean, classic designs are the perfect home decor for a rustic, country farmhouse, an elegant city loft or any home that needs some classic Southern charm.

Come read our Barn Blog for stories more Southern than train songs, white dirt and Carolina dogs.
