What do you get when you combine an out-of-work art teacher, a love of sarcasm and a few art skills? Kansas City artist Kari VanZante combined it all and out popped Urban Smirk kitchen towels! Kari hand-draws and designs each towel idea. Inspiration comes from everywhere and she prides herself on creating towels that are super unique and for the quirky-of-heart. One year ago she was printing each towel by hand at her kitchen island. Now as business grows, she has found an local Kansas City screen printer to help with the printing process.
People may start buying Urban Smirk kitchen towels for the funny factor, but they keep buying the towels for their excellent quality. Towels have a slight waffle texture and are large and absorbent at 18x33 inches.
