Tea Towels

These got second takes during our first Christmas dinner party, and I’m sure will get more when we host in January! So funny! Such levity is needed in today’s climate. We love the graphics and hand of the fabric. Don’t make me cut them up for doggie bandanas~please make dog scarves for 2022!

Best gift ever

I bought these to include in a gift bag with homemade jellies for all of my staff. They brought a smile to their faces.

Great for a white elephant party

This made for a very coveted/often stolen white elephant gift, and it arrived just in the nick of time! Fortunately the person who wanted it most ended up with it.

Best little tea towels in California

I have bought a number of things from this company and loved all of them! The tea towels are excellent quality, fabric is substantial and the the art work makes everyone smile. I got some for gifts and some to keep!

Always wonderful items

Sadly they are put away until next holiday with the holiday calamity mugs. Happily I have the blue kitchen towels and apron to match. I am praying santa claws will have a matching apron for the holiday towels for Xmas 2022!

Wine Wrap

What could be better than a bottle of wine wrapped in a holiday TCBW tea towel!

Daughter loved the Christmas towel

I purchased this as a surprise to include with my daughter’s request for calamity bowls for Christmas. She loved the towel and the quality is very nice.

Towels AND Ornaments?

Calamityware towels with a free one? THEN I find the ornaments are available? You bet I got them both. This is my first Christmas with monsters, flying monkeys, robots, UFOs and all things calamitous. Quality products. I couldn't be happier. 2021 needed some serious intervention! What's next? Dishes? I think so!

So practical and so pretty

I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my daughter-in-law. We both love the "Things Could Be Worse" pattern. This one is a holiday version and is delightful. I've used mine in the kitchen and have washed it. It's stood up to this use just as well as I expected it to (very well indeed). Fun, cute, practical. What else do you need?

Christmas cheer while you wash dishes!

After buying both the petite and "regular" size TCBW Christmas cups, picking up a bunch of these for family and friends was a no-brainer! To be somewhat serious, the towels are well made and the fabric is a nice weight. I love sharing this silly take on the holidays! Introducing people to Calamityware is a gift in and of itself!
