We have a passion to make beautifully designed products that are useful. Our first attempt to bring this design inside the home is found in the williamsbuildings towel series. The Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY is know for a lot of things, but impressive architecture isn't one of them. However, we've managed to spot a few gems scattered about and we set out to capture their beauty in a unique way. We've photographed these buildings and created distinctive illustrations of each one.

The result is a beautiful and practical towel that can add a tastefully designed vibe to your kitchen, washroom, or office. The towels are unbleached, 100% cotton and they're completely washable. Unfolded they measure 28"x29".

Currently, we have six building blocks complete and we're hoping that by bringing our project to kickstarter, we'll secure the necessary funding required to complete the final two building blocks, which will enable us to produce and distribute the complete line of eight williamsbuildings towels. You can see the towels we have finished below with their corresponding ink color, as well as pictures of the two buildings awaiting production.

Once the project is funded (fingers crossed!), we'll email the project backers a form enabling you to choose your towel(s) and give us any other information necessary to completing your reward order. for all of you $500 backers, send us an email at contact@livefrombklyn.com and we'll respond to you with next steps.
