With this last tea towel I found out that designing on black is actually not easy at all! The contrast is high, and because of that small and complicated patterns will hurt your eyes. I had a hard time designing a print that didn't make me feel dizzy looking at it. I had to find something with simple lines, preferably something from a veggie garden and I found...a bean stake!
I am happy with this second black tea towel called BEANS, it's lovely and graphic and you won't see any stain on it after drying the spaghetti-sauce pan!
My tea towels carry the GOTS organic logo and the Fairtrade label! These aren’t just any old pictograms. The entire chain – from the seed to the stitching done in the factory – meets the strict organic and fair-trade requirements. 
Somehow black in fabric influences the absorbtion a bit, so - other that the white ones - the black tea towels should be washed a couple of times before they dry well. Great thing is: the black does NOT fade at all! Because I was afraid of that, I had the manufacturer do 24 laundry tests and the results were amazing: pitch black!
Tea towel BEANS - measurements are 50 x 70 cm, price € 12,75
