Since House Industries does such a remarkable job of describing their latest offering, allow us to let them do the talking, "Regardless of your affinity for either the British or Japanese tea service schools, this social nicety is rife with the danger of spillage and embarrassment when entertaining important guests. House Industries developed these flour sack tea towels to fashionably alleviate such awkward moments by providing a fascinating conversational diversion to the graphic application of typographic elements."

Spot on. Sets of three sell for $30.
