This Portofino design tea towel is a charming highlight of the new Autumn collection at the V&A shop.
The design, featuring scenes of pleasure and leisure, dates to the 1950s when it was known as Bistro, a wallpaper produced by The Wall Paper Manufacturers. Held in the vast collection of the V&A, it's been plucked from the archives and given a new purpose and adapted for use on oven gloves and an apron, as well as the tea towel pictured. Perfect for any wannabe 50s-style housewives.
Not on sale yet, you can pre-order this tea towel for delivery next month. It costs £6.
