Washes up great!

First outing with the apron, of course I spill molasses all over myself. But it washed up beautifully and no permanent staining (phew!) I was cooking for my 85YO mom and she said “what a pretty apron!” So I told her to look closer and she said “There’s a monster!” and started giggling like anything, so a hit for all ages.

Whimsical practicality - excellent

We needed new pot holders. We needed new napkins. Partly because our existing stock was old and tired, but also because they were devoid of silliness. Calamityware to the rescue. We love the new stuff, and the old stuff has been sent to a farm upstate.

Scary cool!

Being something of a placemat connoisseur I was pleasantly surprised by the super high quality of these placements. The subject matter may be ever so slightly silly, but someone obviously took materials and craftsmanship very seriously. And delivery was faster than a speeding pterodactyl. Strong work!

love these

Fantastic quality. I have tea towels and an apron, and I love them. The tea towel has one of those little hang-off-the-cabinet knobs loops that is sturdy and does not slip off said knob easily. The apron has a pocket! And it's thick, absorbent, and apparently impervious to tomato stains.

Napkins are delightful 😊

Great napkins! Thick material and absorbent. Adorable design (of course). Perfect to commemorate 2020-2021. I highly recommend!

My cooking is a calamity!

These high quality, fiendishly printed kitchen textiles suit my cooking style perfectly. Monsters are great company when I am stirring up a witches brew

Best napkins ever!

I’m a little obsessed with the “things could be worse” pattern, ever since a friend got me the mug. I purchased the napkins and they are awesome. They are high-quality and wash well, but, most importantly, they are the source of wonderful dinner conversation and amusement when guests get close enough to realize they are not boring old napkins. They are whimsical and creative and fun. 100% recommend!

Great Pot Holders

I'm enjoying the Things Could Be Worse pot holders. They do the job well and remind me that burning the cookies is not the worst that could happen.

Perfect for kids of all ages

My 12 year old grandson loves a well set table. We bought these as a family gift for them because they’re fun for all ages and encourage fun family dining.🥰 I am also very pleased with the quality of the placemats.
