Like cushions, tea towels provide the perfect surface to showcase artwork: is it any wonder there are so many great designs to choose from?
For some reason I seem to have fixated on type when it comes to these – first up is this fun sweetie design by Mr PS.
Howkapow always stocks great design so I like to check in now and again and see what they have. I particularly like this Great British Roast Tea Towel designed by Stuart Gardiner.
There is a simplicity to most of Thornback and Peel‘s designs which is very appealing but I like this one with bunnies running through the cabbage patch.
On etsy designer Gabriela Larios is selling this brilliant 2013 Tea Towel Calendar: why not kill two birds with one stone!
Hus and Hem stock this fabulous retro tea towel by Almedahls: the Pomona design was first created in 1956 and looks every bit as good today.
Designer Victoria Eggs has produced a Christmas dinner tea towel, featuring all your festive food favourites in fancy type.
To Dry For is THE shop for tea towels, so I had to check in and see what they have this season: my favourite is the Classic Cocktails tea towel, also by Stuart Gardiner.
How much fun is this bank note tea towel by Ella James? It comes in two designs based on either the £20 or £50 bank note.
The Pintuck website from Mary Land has got a few fab designs: I like this one’s sentiments. Make Do and Mend.
And if your budget doesn’t stretch to a one off bit of Rob Ryan artwork you could always frame his very special 2012 Christmas tea towel. What a winner! Best of all it can be cut up and sewn into a personalised stocking if you fancy.
