Tea towels

Tartella just might be the secret ingredient your kitchen is missing. This local company’s wine tags, cookbook bookmarks, and recipe cards have simple, appealing patterns and messages such as “Bake. Eat. Live. Love. Repeat.” The tea towels (pictured, $11-$14) are almost too pretty to use. Available at Renegade Handmade, 1924 W. Division St., or order custom items at tartella.com
