I bought the apron, oven mitt and tea towels. They're a good sturdy cotton material and will hold up to use and washing well. The apron has an adjustable neck strap, and one of the reasons i bought this pattern is that it hides stains well lol!
The main reason, of course, is the patterns’ whimsy. I have a black and white theme going in my kitchen. My hand soap dispenser and sponge holder have a similar repetitive pattern, one with flowers, the other is a repeating swirls, and flower pots with yet another mix with stars swirls and dots. The thing is that the tea towels etc seems to have just another black and white pattern but on closer inspection it reveals the witchy theme! Making herbal medicinal teas and tinctures, salves and lotions appears more ‘magical’ when i wear the apron!
Doing it Don! Liking the Black things. I’d like to exchange my blue monster wallpaper for a black version because I want it to go with my monster shower curtain. The blue it going to clash. I want the Graphic Black to own the tiny room where I do my business.
I got a "deal" on the Kitchen Witch towels/mitts/placemats. They are very groovy and go great with my canisters. I kickstarted those canisters a while back and they are beautiful. And now my kitchen is delightfully coordinated with these nice quality additions. The pattern is subtle and then you look closer and it is so much FUN! Thanks you crazy kids up there in Pittsburgh! Also, I've already washed a couple of the towels and they are just fine.
I bought the placemat and napkins. Love them both. They are well made and look great!
Great quality and you can’t go wrong with black and white. Look great with my Kitchen Witch canisters. Just spooky enough for Halloween and a great conversation starter. 🖤
The placemats are very nice. They are a thick, high quality material that will definitely hold up to daily use. Spills wash out with no problem, too. The hot pads and pot holders are heat resistant and do their job well. The tea towels are a nice size and look great. Perfect for a witchy/gothic decor.
I like my "Things could be worse" kitchen textile set, but, sometimes, a gal just needs basic black (and white). The Kitchen Witch textile set is perfect for the spooky season. The textiles go well with the Kitchen Witch Canister set. The weight of the cloth is nice. I have a hard time tying apron strings behind my back, so I used one of the tea towels cut in half on the long axis, and added to the length of each apron tie. Works well. The oven mitts are well insulated. With the addition of the Kitchen Witch Talisman (with the cat charm), my kitchen is well protected from calamity.
