'Creating products happened almost by accident, I was asked to make napkins for an art show called 'eat your art out' and then printed the design on a dish towel, all my friends wanted one. That was the beginning of the funny quotes towels. It was also during the recession, the towels were an affordable gift and everyone needed a laugh. And the rest is history...' Valentine
