This set of two 100% organic cotton, double Jacquard woven tea towels are reversible.

The towels are designed by Susan Kare, a pioneer of early computer graphic interface design. In the 80s, she began work at Apple Computer designing fonts, icons, and visual elements for the original Macintosh operating system and applications. Kare subsequently followed Steve Jobs to Next Computer as the tenth employee and Creative Director. She was the founding partner of Susan Kare Design, a graphic design practice in San Francisco in 1989, and since then has designed thousands of icons for hundreds of clients along with many corporate identity and other design projects, from Microsoft’s Solitaire cards to Facebook’s virtual gifts.

Kare designed this set of textiles for the Jacquard loom, an early example of computer-controlled machinery, operated with punched cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801. This line of fine textiles celebrates the parallels between weaving and pixels; both rely on the idea of a grid spread across the surface of a medium.

Care of towels: machine wash cold, dry flat.
