ABOUT

Tacky Towels was born in the middle of the pandemic. We discovered during home-office, that the kitchen towel is and has been the most underrated and misunderstood kitchen accessory. That's when we decided to give it the love and support it deserves!!

Providing everyone with the chance to spice up their kitchen with unique towels - designed to put a smile on your face!

All our products are social & sustainably created. The social part comes from the re-integration workplace that we work within Berlin. This fantastic workplace guides these incredible women & men to gain confidence and learn a new trade that will improve their chances of finding a new steady job. Aiming to get them ready to participate in society without support. The sustainable part is related that we only use certified fabrics that are not harmful to the environment.
