The Girlscantell hand-drawn coasters, tea towels, trivets and more from Philadelphia-based designer Sara Selepouchin add an artistic touch to any kitchen. Using visually striking infographics, items feature and labeled diagrams of anything from human hearts to typewriters, cameras, gardening tools and hamburgers.
Altogether, Selepouchin now offers about 50 diagram designs emblazoned on affordable home goods. For the domestic goddess, an oven mitt features KitchenAid mixers and for masculine types who still value a tidy kitchen, industrial-grade felt coasters come printed with a portrait of a power drill.
After making the rounds of local art fairs for a few years, Selepouchin turned Girlscantell into a full-time endeavor, putting out larger print runs for clients like Terrain, the home-and-garden design mecca from Urban Outfitters parent company Urban Inc. She adds new diagram designs every week for the first half of the year, and now prints on notebooks, placemats and key-chain bottle openers.
