mackerel-tea-towel

It’s the beautiful original watercolour by Nigel that makes this lovely tea towel stand out from the crowd. An artist who has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, Nigel’s inspiration for his range of printed kitchen textiles and accessories came from holidays spent in Cornwall. We just love this.

We love the way Oscar Francis takes ordinary ‘pattern architecture’ and makes it into something beautiful. The pretty colours of this Church Street design and all the slightly different shop fronts makes this a winning design for us. Just lovely.

This is a beautiful screen printed nautical tea towel for your kitchen. Inspired by summer holidays to the Devon coast, in a fresh navy blue design that tapers off towards the top of the tea towel. Each tea towel has a loop at the top, and is screen printed and handmade here in the UK. A great gift idea for anyone who likes coastal style – and worth knowing that each of Charlotte’s screen printed tea towels will be presented gift-wrapped in white tissue paper, ready to wrap with paper of your choice.

Made in Scotland by Inchyra from best quality 100% soft cotton towelling and edged in matching gingham, this towel is designed to attach to the rails of any range cooker from an AGA to an electric range cooker.

7 Quince Tea Towel by Teresa Green, £11

quince-tea-towel

Teresa’s designs are quirky and inspired by her love of kitchenalia – particularly ‘ladle-shaped spoons, apple ladders and elongated watering cans…’ We just love them, and the fact that all Teresa’s textiles are hand-printed in her studio in Devon, using natural, UK sourced materials.
