I’ve been stumbling across so many gorgeous tea towels recently. It seems that unique and designer tea towels are all the rage, you see them everywhere – tea towels so stupendously pretty or quirky that is would be a crime to use them to dry dishes with! The tea towel is now more than ever, a desirable designer item – a blank canvas for creatives to express themselves on… tiny pieces of art that every home needs. I thought I would share a few local lovelies with you…
Vanilla Concrete who is maybe best known for their stunning feminine ceramics ranges recently released a beautiful textile range. The Notebook Collection consist of various sketch-like designs – products include gorgeous scatter cushions and table linen. The quirky tea towel designs features sweet phrases and cute doodles… love the bunny design!
I simply adore these whimsical floral tea towels by Naqiyah Mayat of niQi. The aptly named handmade design is called “Alice in Wonderland” and the gorgeous spring-coloured scheme of corals & aquas is simply delicious… love the lace and button detail!
Emma Wyngaard, the creative brain behind YumYum Handmade Textiles, designed the awesome vintage cutlery and kitchen scale tea towels above. Don’t you think they would look stunning if framed… far too funky to dry dishes with!
I was just waiting for the right post to feature the drop-dead gorgeous products of Tatum Lataste of Knysna-based company, Wild Rhubarb. She has a stunning range of products featuring beautiful sketchy nature-inspired designs screen printed onto striking bold-coloured cloth. These beautiful tea towels with vintage cutlery design is right up my alley!
These awesome tea towels reminded me of the children’s classic, the Town Musicians of Bremen – a stacked farm animals… or do you prefer the other tea towel with a African twist featuring a cheeky baboon and meerkat? These gorgeous beauties are from Nest and available via Meekel.
Stumbled across this quirky purple cabbage tea towel on Hello Pretty. Designed by super talented illustrator Euodia, of Touchee Feelee (LOVE the name btw), the cabbage tea towel also comes in pink. Watch this lady…
Another illustrator blessing the world with her whimsical designs. Kathy Mellor designed the three quirky tea towels above. My favourite is the Eggbeater tea towel, how about you?Hadeda is a treasure trove of awesome awesome product – they import most of it from Central and South America. I simply loved this striking Aztec print tea towel, it’s a total riot of colour and South American inspired patterns are super trendy at the moment! You can also buy this bright beauty for a limited time at a discounted price from CityMob (hurry, go check it out)!

[…] Turn too-beautiful-to-use tea towels into quirky yet affordable works of art by having them framed. If you have basic needle-and-thread skills, you can also sew pretty tea towels together to transform them into playful, one-of-a-kind tablecloths or runners. […]
Lovely! Thanks for sharing.
What beautiful art!
