Product DescriptionAlphabet fantastic, one of our newer designs our ABC ‘Pintuck’ Tea Towel is already proving super popular, Mary’s font makes it fun and original. These best selling ‘Pintuck’ tea towels by Mary Fellows are full of positivity to brighten up dish drying. (Or if you’re not so keen on drying up you can always hang it on the wall)! Screen printed and sewn here in England from 100% top quality cotton they are of course machine washable. Each tea towel is 75 x 45 cm approx. Also available as a matching apron.
Mary designed her ‘Pintuck’ range soon after her daughter was born, at the time there didn’t seem to be bright patterned tea towels in the shops. The range began with 6 tea towels. The inspiration was her love of fonts, packaging and advertising from the 50’s. 60’s and 70’s. Using a limited colour palette and some positive adages the range came about. Still being added to the designs are now available on mugs, tea towels, aprons, table mats, greetings cards, prints and bags. The first design was ‘It’s a Beautiful Day‘. It was entirely made from cutting shapes from paper. Mary begins her designs by drawing and painting images and fonts on paper as well as cutting shapes out of paper and then scanning all the elements into the computer. Here she can adjust and tweak the designs and play with colour.
The textiles are all printed and sewn in England using the highest quality cotton and inks to be lasting and durable. Her china is all traditionally screen printed again her in the UK. We carefully apply the transfers to our fine china mugs (fine china because it’s the finest and nicest to drink from). Then we fire in our kilns onsite in Lewes and pack them safely in our fab new boxes and rush them straight to you to enjoy!
Look good and work even better!
