Whether the forthcoming Olympics have put you in the mood to celebrate all that's great about Britain or not, there's no denying that this Union Jack Liberty Print Tea Cosy is fit to grace any afternoon tea table.
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee year is inspiring all sorts of products – from biscuit tins to bunting. This Embroidered Love Cushion from Luna and Curious manages to tap into patriotism without shouting about it.
With the glut of Union Jack designs we saw earlier in the year (especially around the time of that wedding), I thought nothing featuring that design would ever appeal to me again. That was before I saw Rory Dobner’s Marvellous Mugs.
We've already featured some of the quirky designs from The TeaShed, now punk graphics get something of a surprising treatment with this God Save Our Grannies cushion.
Yes, the cushion offers a new take on Jamie Reid's artwork, replace the image of the Queen with a friendly looking granny. While the Sex Pistols may have been being subversive, this cushion is entirely well-meaning, part of a campaign to encourage people to have a cup of tea with an elderly person.
The design is hand screen-printed onto the cushion, which has a duck feather filling.
The cushion costs £40.
