Wouldn’t these make the perfect Christmas presents? I really wouldn’t mind receiving a tea towel if it was one of these.
Drying the dishes has never been anybody’s favourite task, but you’ve got to hand it to the designers, they really are trying their damndest to ease the pain with increasingly imaginative tea towels coming onto the market.
But then, just when you’re nodding sagely and thinking that it’s all about the girls, she has created a couple for the boys too.
There are four designs, all made from cotton that measure 48cm by 76cm. However, while tea towels are slightly subversive in their message, the matching mugs are much more conventional. There the prince saves the princess by slaying the dragon and the frog is kissed.
And if the idea of tea towels as presents really upsets you then what about the hickory dickory clock? It’s £38 and there’s a place for it in my kitchen any time.
And who wouldn’t want the Goldilocks and the Three Bears bowl set?
