The Strong Women Tea Towel is created by Jennifer Connor of Jennie Blue Ceramics. The tea towel’s images are from original illustrations printed here in Maine using eco-friendly water-based inks. 100% cotton, machine wash and dry.
These flour sack towels are approximately 28 inches square, though the size may vary slightly due to the nature of flour sack towels. They are printed on 100% cotton tea towel using environmentally gentle, water based inks. They are super absorbent and lint free and will become softer with each use.
Jennifer Connor has always been drawn to graphite and pen and ink sketches, those quick studies that precede finished work. It is those sketches that are the inspiration for this work. Some of the images are original, some have been borrowed from vintage images collected at book sales and auctions. All of these tea towels are printed using Jennifer’s original illustrations formerly painted on ceramic. While she uses a paintbrush for the original illustration, she has developed a painting technique that is reminiscent of pencil drawings.
