textiles: Helle Graabæk

Drowning by NUMBERS includes three series, each consisting of four dish towels with graphic number prints, either in four different colours or in black and orange. The dish towels are made in 100% linen and intended for everyday use. The printed numbers are a wry comment on the complexities of everyday life and an attempt at simplification: When No. 1 is wet, you move on to No. 2, etc. The metal eyelet makes the towels easy to hang.
The funky print challenges our routine and encourages dialogue and reflection – maybe it draws a smile. Who said a mundane object like a dish towel had to be dull and in a dull quality?
