This Week We Love: Tea Towels

Tea towels have gone beyond being a kitchen essential- they have been elevated to iconic status! We’ve selected our current favourites – we love the idea of framing cheeky slogan tea towels as artwork, but they also work as great for gifts for budding domestic goddesses…..

Vintage Prints…

Vintage florals, hand-rendered sketches and a retro post-war vibe keep this Vintage Tea Party theme going strong…
