Dry Humor

Who wouldn't wish to wash their wares with such a whimsical wonder? An unbleached, 100% organic cotton tea towel is printed with 38 samples of tongue tickling text, ranging from classics ("Round and round the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran"), to childhood favorites (Peter Piper makes an appearance), to cheeky new inventions. It makes doing the dishes delightfully delicious. Made and printed in the UK.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods in the U.S.A.

Stuart Gardiner truly found his stride when he became an independent graphic designer. After years of pleasing clients in the music industry, going solo has "been a very liberating experience," he says. "Now I get to design my own products just as I want them." It's a benefit for all of us.

The London-based artist, who studied graphic information design, injects his unique sense of humor into his towels-slash-conversation pieces, offering an elucidative take on beloved foods and beverages. "I design visually as I think, working with color, type, image, and form until I'm happy with the final design—or tired of looking at it, and need to move on," he jokes.

    Needed a dish drying towel...this looked like the most fun we could have while still getting the job done. Kids and adults love trying out the tongue twisters. I even ordered a few more for hostess/family gifts.

      Comments about TYPOGRAPHIC TONGUE TWISTER TOWEL:

      I knew exactly where to go when I needed a gift for my sister's sweetheart! This kitchen/bar towel is not over-the-top, it's not extravagant, and it's not too personal. It's fun, colorful & clever. As a gift for a "slightly salty" gentleman, this turned out to be "slightly salty" as well...just perfect.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As usual, your Christmas delivery schedule was on target and much appreciated! Thank you!

      Comments about TYPOGRAPHIC TONGUE TWISTER TOWEL:

      This towel didn't look too absorbent, and is mostly for decorative purposes. It had many tongue twisters in various fonts and sizes, that were amusing when read out loud. Something there for ages 8 to 80. Was a hit with the family at Christmas.

        I bought this towel as a Christmas present for a friend. He likes to joke and laugh and is also very "into" wine. This is a nice sized towel and I'm sure he will find it useful.

            Since it's a gift I can't speak to how it will wash up, etc. but I simply liked the idea of this. It's not the highest quality tea towel but it will make for a fun hostess Christmas gift.

            We needed new kitchen towels and I saw this...and with our senses of humor, I knew it would be a hit. My significant other and I laugh each time we take it out of the drawer--and try to say all the tongue twisters. It makes cooking fun.

              Comments about TYPOGRAPHIC TONGUE TWISTER TOWEL:

              I voted for this item, when it was a "Shape the Future of Uncommon Goods" item. I said I'd buy it if it became available, and since it WON, I bought two. Both for laughs for friends that love this sort of thing. Thrilled with it, as were both recipients. They love to show it off, and love the story that it's "original"!
