Blossom and Bill tea towel

Blossom and bill
We've featured so many Blossom and Bill products on this site, it's hard to believe that it's only now that they are making an appearance on a tea towel

Yes, ISAK's retro couple are finally ready to help you do your dishes. Their charming features have been depicted in four bright colour schemes. Take your pick from brown, blue, pink and green. There's even four suitably cheery mugs to match. 

The tea towels cost £9.95.

Sagaform ceramic fish platter


This ceramic fish platter from Sagaform references both its geographical and design heritage. 

It's designed to bring a traditional Scandinavian platter of fish-based delicacies to your table while it also has a definite 1950s look, not dissimilar to Marianne Nilsson's Herring design dating from that decade and available from New House Textiles.

This platter is clearly intended for display as well as use, with a hole at the top enabling it to be hung up on the kitchen wall. Like Nilsson's design, it's also available on a jar – perfect for storing away your fishy delicacies. 

The platter costs £19.95.

Angie Lewin for St Jude’s mugs

Lewin mug

It was only couple of weeks ago we told you about tea towels Angie Lewin had designed for St Jude's first collection of homewares. We also mentioned how they were also planning to do their own mug range. And here it is…

The bone china mugs feature the same designs you can get on the tea towels, plus a few others such as the dandelion design shown here and the Skye mug. All the mugs use the same muted colour palette and share the same retro feel. 

The mugs cost £7.25 each.

Angie Lewin tea towels from St Judes

Lewin towels

St Jude's produce some lovely fabrics with a great retro look, including the Angie Lewin Hedgerow fabric we featured at the start of the year. If you like the look, you'll be pleased they've started reproducing some of Lewis' original fabric designs as tea towels, an easily affordable way to buy into the look. 

There are three designs in total, stocked at Illustrated Living, including the Clifftop and Clocks designs pictured above. They're typical of her style showing skeletal 50s-style illustrations of plant forms and are screen-printed onto 100% organic cotton. 

Watch this space, as St Jude's are soon to be launching their first range of ceramic mugs. In the meantime, these tea towels cost £9.95 each.
