Whilst packing for my move to the country 6 weeks ago I came to the realisation that I have a bit of a 'thing' for patterned tea towels. Two boxes worth in fact!
These new tea towels featuring textile designs from the 40's and 50's from the V&A Museum would fit in perfectly with my collection of vintage designs too....
'Houses' was originally designed as a furnishing fabric by Joy Jarvis in 1950, and was manufactured by Gerald Holtom Ltd, London.
This design is based on 'Full Measure' by Kenneth Rowntree, manufactured by Edinburgh Weavers in 1957.
Based on 'Urne', a furnishing fabric designed by Pansa Studios, and manufactured by Sanderson Fabrics in 1955.
Based on a furnishing fabric design by Rhona Park under the instruction of the Central School of Art and Design, London, 1951.
'The Fishermen' furnishing textile was designed in 1956 by Keith Vaughan for Edinburgh Weavers.
This design is based on a textile repeat by John Drummond, a student at the Central School of Art and Design in 1948.
