We featured Robin Day yesterday, so it seems only right to feature his wife, Lucienne Day today – especially as some of her tea towel designs from the 1950s have been reissued.

Probably Britain’s most famous textile designer of the 20th Century, Lucienne Day’s work can be found in museum collections worldwide. But it’s not expensive to get some into your home. These tea towel designs, launched originally in 1954, are fantastic period pieces, great pieces of design and practical items too.

They’re made in Ireland from 100% Irish pure linen in 4 designs –  ‘Too many cooks’, ‘Provencal’, ‘Night & Day’ and ‘Batterie de Cuisine’. All come in smart gift boxes and retail for £16.
