Tea Towels by Scholten & Baijings

Following the success of our original Scholten & Baijings Tea Towels, which have been HAY bestsellers for a decade, the design duo has now created a new and updated tea-towel design for the HAY Accessories Collection. Here, their signature bold use of colour and fresh patterning has been translated into graphic lines and erratic scribbles produced by playing with a Bic pen and a marker. Made in pure cotton, the Tea Towels come in sets of two, with assorted designs and colour combinations to choose from.
