Make Me Iconic plastic tea towel


Inspired by the range of tourist iconography available in Great Britain, Make Me Iconic attempts to do the same with some of Melbourne's landmarks. They've commissioned young designers to create new artwork celebrating the history of the city, resulting in products like this Plastic Tea Towel.  

The design shows the Nylex Plastics sign, giving the time and temperature to residents since it was built on top of barley silos in 1961. Other designs focus on the city's milk bars, skyline and transport network and are shown across a range of cushions, prints and mugs, as well as the tea towels. Each product comes packaged with some information on the history of the object it illustrates. 

This design costs AUS $25.
