While there are always hundreds of attractive tea towels to help you dry your dishes, it's rare that you'd use anything too fancy to actually wash-up your pots. Eager readers may remember Maria Homer Dahlgren's London dish cloth and, also from Sweden (clearly the land of the fancy dish cloth) comes this vintage-style tattoo dish cloth.
The white sponge cloth features a blue and black illustration of a female sailor, executed in a classic '50s rockabilly style and shown in the centre of an old-fashioned rose design. It seems quite a novelty but take a look at the Sivletto website and you can see several other retro designs for dish cloths, including one featuring a classic pin-up girl design.
At £3 per cloth it's certainly a lot nicer to look at than your standard blue and white check number.
