We live in an era of mass consumption, but more than that, we live in an era of duplicated products. These Error Tea Towels go against this seemingly unstoppable movement. We may not like or appreciate differences and mistakes--just look at the increase in plastic surgery over the years--but there's beauty in the unique, and that was explored in these unpretentious cloths.
Designed by Pieke Bergmans, these six Error Tea Towels are currently displayed at the Textile Museum in Tilburg, The Netherlands. They can also be purchased for €15 each.
