Illustrative Tea Towels Inspired by Folklore by Mirdinara Kitchen

Mirdinara Kitchen

Ya’ll. Ever since Lisa sent me the link to Mir­di­nara Kitchen, I’ve been admir­ing the entire line of tea tow­els. They are designed by illus­tra­tor Dinara Mir­tal­ipo­va and are inspired by her eth­nic back­ground and folk­lore (she’s orig­i­nal­ly from Tashkent, Uzbek­istan). You can see the influ­ence in her visu­al lan­guage; the style of flow­ers and women with babushkas are def­i­nite­ly of a cer­tain world.

Mir­di­nara Kitchen believes that cook­ing togeth­er stim­u­lates healthy rela­tion­ships to food — it shows the joy that comes with prepar­ing a meal. Kids, espe­cial­ly, ben­e­fit from being involved in food prepa­ra­tion. They explain, “Through the sto­ries we share about cook­ing togeth­er we are aim­ing to inspire our read­ers [they have a blog] to rather try and learn new recipes, than pur­chase processed food.”

Gor­geous! You can buy them here.
