Andy Tuohy has been busy lately. As well as the Margate poster we featured at the weekend, he's been working with the Liverpool Tate to produce a set of designs celebrating the city which includes this tea towel.
Tate have teamed up with one of Retro To Go's favourite illustrators, Maria Dahlgren, to produce a great new range of retro homewares.
They've been produced to accompany the current Miro exhibition at Tate Modern. Miro's art influenced the designs of Lucienne Day, amongst many others, so it's hardly surprising that these scarves nod towards her work. Made from 100% linen, they are decorated with a pattern that uses the sketchy, skeletal forms so associated with 50s designs.
Available in three colours, the scarves cost £45 each.

A reissue being sold to accompany the current Henry Moore exhibition at Tate Modern, these cushion covers use textile designs Moore did in the 1940s.
Although the artist is famous for his sculptural works he did also produce textile designs, first for Zika Ascher from 1943 onwards and then for David Whitehead Fabrics after the Festival of Britain. The two textiles available, Wings and Ovals or Half Figures, were both designs produced for Ascher in about 1947.
The patterns are printed onto 100% cotton cushion covers, which sell without their pads. They cost £15 each.

The exhibition Pop Life opened last week at Tate Modern. The show looks at the impact of Pop Art and how following generations of artists embraced the cult of celebrity and the commercial opportunities it offered. At the centre of the exhibition is a recreation of Keith Haring's Pop Shop which he set up in New York to sell his branded products directly to the public. Of course this means Tate is stocking some great related products, including these fabric patches.
Reflecting Haring's willingness to put his name to just about anything, they use four of his famous designs, including the baby. They are perfect for adding a touch of street art to a worn, but otherwise loved, item of clothing. At £4.40 each they are a cheap way into buying into a favourite artist and the spirit of the exhibition.
