‘midnight ink’ digitally-printed tea towel by squeakdesign

i know my kitchen tea towels are in desperate need of an upgrade … i may just venture over to squeakdesign for my next few. their digital printing looks just like trendy indigo dye-ing, which i love … did you know they have bags and scarves and cushions and pouches and freaking dressing gowns, too?! now you do … so have at it, followers!

au for the yoga au - Where everything’s the same, but shota!eren style. 

Everyone would be a little confused at first when they see their yoga instructor is some little boy. But no one questions it after they get hit with cuteness overload: little Eren tumbling every time he tried to do a pose. Little Eren’s arms wobbling as he tries to maintain plank position. Little Eren in colorful workout clothes and cute, titan-printed towels to wipe away his sweat. Little Eren barking out orders and everyone just smiling as they do what their instructor says.

Review: Society6 towels

Art-printed beach and bath towels are now on offer through S6, so I thought I’d take a look at them. Mermaids and beach towels seem well matched!

I ordered 3: Jellyfish mermaid, Coral mermaid, and Pink and Pearls mermaid. The towels are printed on one side and plain white on the other. The printed side is soft and silky, the white side is more textured and absorbent, so clearly one side is for show/for lying on, and one is for drying you off. 

First, the good news. As usual, Society 6 printing is GORGEOUS. The colors are bright, the detail is crisp - the towels look exactly like the paintings, with all the watercolor details captured. So cool!

These are going out as gifts, so I haven’t used them or put them through the wash - I’ll report back when I have more info on their longevity. Looking at them now, they seem to be thick and decent quality, so I’m guessing they’ll be nice to use and last pretty well through repeated washings. 

The bad news is that the shipping, at least internationally, sucks. It took about 3 weeks for these to arrive - extremely slow compared to other companies, even considering that it’s print-on-demand. If you’re ordering something for a gift, plan way ahead.

Other than that, I’m happy to report that these are some good-looking items, that show off the artwork really well. I’ll be ordering more! You can pick one up in my Society6 shop!
