Olli and lime charlie-napkin

Olli and Lime are best known for their bright, retro-influenced designs for kids, such as the Egg Orange range we featured a little while back. They've also just moved into homewares, with two new kitchen ranges

You can pick from the bold colours and patterns of the Charlie or the George design, both of which are also available for the nursery. The image shown is from the Charlie range which includes tea towels, napkins, aprons and table runners, in fact everything you need to match your kitchen to your kid! 

Prices start at £15 for a tea towel.

Horrockses Fashions’ inspired products at the V&A

Horrockses apron

Vintage clothing connoisseurs will no doubt be aware of Horrockses Fashions. Started in 1946, the company specialised in full-skirted, colourfully-printed dresses. The company will be the subject of an exhibition opening at the Fashion and Textiles Museum, Bermondsey in July but if you can't wait that long you may be interested to learn that some of their bold patterns are being reproduced on products for the V&A

The V&A now holds the archives for Horrockses Fashions and have drawn on some of their textile designs for some Spring inspiration. The company had a long history of working with great textile designers and the V&A's range includes this apron in a Rose pattern that was originally designed by Pat Albeck in 1953. The pattern is also available on a (oh so twenty-first century) tote bag. 

Pat Albeck is actually Emma Bridgewater's mother-in-law (you can see some of her contemporary designs on their website), so perhaps these designs could also offer a little inspiration for this Mother's day? 

The apron costs £15 while the bag costs £10.
