The collectible towels that Mary Lazarus and Lucy Pellizzer have created are more than ordinary kitchen towels. The inspiration for Vestiges came while Lucy was teaching Mary Italian. They realized they shared a passion for heritage, travel, and an appreciation for collectibles. They wanted to bring back an old 1930's American tradition of collecting souvenir textiles of places and landmarks that had been visited. Students at the Minnesota College of Art and Design are creating updated designs and landmarks for all 50 states as well some regional and limited edition towels.
Vestiges towels are made of 100% preshrunk cotton and use water based inks. Not only are these colorful towels perfect for the kitchen or bar but are frameable, making them an affordable and unique piece of art for any decor.
