TAFA Team Etsy Pick of the Week: Red and White Handwoven Tea Towel

Something about summer makes me think of red gingham.  Well, I think about red gingham quite a lot actually.  But seeing this red and white handwoven tea towel  by Thistle and Rose Handweaving out of Centerville, Utah, I think SUMMER TIME!  (Can you tell that I'm very excited that it finally looks and feels like summer out here in N. California?)  Martha Witcher, the creative force behind Thistle and Rose is a self-taught weaver and her Etsy shop is filled with beautiful utilitarian handwoven pieces for the home.

You can read more about her and see more of her work by visiting her on the TAFA List, on her blog, and on her Etsy site

*Etsy Pick of the Week feature by Stacey Sharman from Peppermint Pinwheels.  Every Thursday, we will post one item from a TAFA Team affiliated Etsy store. In choosing a Team member photo, we will be looking for beautiful, Etsy Front Page worthy photos.


  1. For some reason, I look at that photo and feel "comfort". Ah....

  2. Thank you so much for picking my handwoven towel as the TAFA pick of the week, I am honored. Please feel free to visit my ETSY shop to view my heirloom quality handwoven textiles.

    Enjoy your summer!

  3. These are lovely. Have you ever thought of weaving in linen? Linen hand towels are very hard to find.

  4. The price of linen kills my weaving budget, but...I do have a few cones in my stash. Guess I better get busy!
