Emmeline Simpson Bath cityscapes

Bath cityscape tea towel

A lot of the designers featuring cities and architectural landscapes in their work tend to focus on London, so it’s great to come across some city-inspired work that focuses on somewhere else – in this case, Bath.

Bristol-based Emmeline Simpson produces a range of products featuring designs inspired by cityscapes. This tea towel, for example, features a line drawing of the iconic view of the Royal Crescent in Bath – and having been there recently, it does so extremely well (although you probably wouldn’t see six hot air balloons passing by every day).

Made from 100% cotton and screen printed, the tea towel costs £8.95 from Emmeline’s shop on Not On The High Street.

As well as Bath cityscapes, you’ll also find homeware items in her store, such as mugs, coasters and prints, with images of Bristol and Oxford.

Delicious ice cream flavours

What's your favourite ice cream flavour?

It’s most definitely the weather for ice cream and, having tasted some delicous ice cream over the weekend, this Favourite Flavours tea towel seems highly appropriate.

Designed and created by the wonderful Mr.PS, Manchester-based Megan Price, the tea towel is made from 100% cotton and is  screen printed by hand.

Like the Full English Breakfast tea towel that we featured previously, it comes with a useful coloured ribbon loop for hanging.

The tea towel is available printed in raspberry or sunshine and you can swoon over your favourite ice cream flavours as you do the dishes!

It’s £10 from the Mr.PS store on Not On The High Street.

Bird trend kitchen dishes tea towel from Soulful Toaster

Birdy tea towel

There’s a seemingly neverending trend for birdy themes in interior design and homeware products, but as we’re still discovering more quirky products and unusual designs, it doesn’t seem done to death quite yet.

It’s a while since we last featured the shop Soulful Toaster, but here’s a cool blackbird tea towel that they’re currently selling.

The bird box teatowel features a graphic image of three blackbirds standing on a mass of three dimensional boxes and is different from some of the other bird trend pieces we’ve featured before.

The design has been screen printed onto the cotton teatowel, and they’re all printed in East London.

The bird box teatowel costs £9.50 from Soulful Toaster.
