checkered check
This tea towel comes in a design I call checkered check; it’s a check on top of a check. This double check allows for a fun collaboration of the different remainders used on the warp and weft. The tea towel is woven on a jacquard machine and comes with the same signature striped edge as the other Odds & Ends textiles.

As the towels are produced with small batches of industry remainders they vary in color, however, the general palette is always maintained and the towels from a certain color palette will go together easily. The towel you receive might be exactly the same or slightly different from the ones you see in the photos on this page.

editions & colours

The odds & ends editions are produced in batches. The factory collects remainders and I use these colours to create a new design which is then produced. That exact design is only a start, along the production the left overs run out and are replaced with similar colours. Therefor the images you see in the photo’s are an indication of what the towels look like, but there’s small variations within the batch.

striped hem

Recognize a Odds & Ends towel by it’s signature striped hem.  Each item in the collection comes with this hem that is made on a jacquard machine.

production in Portugal

The Odds & Ends textiles are produced in Portugal with 100% cotton industry remainders. That’s small batches of yarn that are left over from other productions.

I made several designs with the idea that they get only more interesting if we use more colours, read: even the smallest remainders. The designs are produced in several similar colours and even within the edition there’s differences, because when colours run out they are replaced with new ones and that’s where coincidence takes over :D!
