We frequently feature tea towels on this site, but dish clothes are a little bit rarer (probably with good reason). This Tulip Dishcloth from Klippan is possibly only the fourth such item we’ve featured.
The retro tulip design was created by Lotta Glave (one half of the Swedish design team Bengt & Lotta). It is available in a choice of colours, either shades of blue or red/yellow/green. Each dish cloth costs £2.44, which is undoubtedly more than you’d pay for a normal pack of cloths, but cheap enough if you want to add that final finishing touch to a totally retro kitchen.
Buy them from the Scandinavian Design Center.
They aren't usually the thing you'd splash out on but who says your dish cloths shouldn't look as nice as everything else in your home? Certainly not Maria Holmer Dahlgren, whose design is featured on this London dish cloth. Apparently it's quite usual for Scandinavian homes to use designer dish cloths and who are we to argue with their sense of style?
If the Pop style illustrations of London landmarks look familiar it's because we've featured her London designs for trays a couple of times before. The illustrations look lovely in the black, white and turquoise colour scheme, almost too nice to use on your dirty dishes. Handily then, it's made from cellulose and is fully machine washable.
This small slice of style costs £3.75. .
