I have been on a bit of a home interiors binge recently, Jon is getting thoroughly fed up of me sending him links, emails and pintrest pictures of homey stuff I like (usually whilst its quiet at work or when I am procrastinating from doing an editing job) I pretty much have our house planned, in my head that is, sadly actually getting our own first home is a long way off. But that doesn't stop me nosing at beautiful and chic interiors and homeware items.
That's when I came across the quaint company Bee & Tea, a British company run by 2 sisters, Bridget and Natasha, specialising in nostalgic floral and fauna prints on household objects! Bridget is the talented artist behind all the prints, and Natasha is the business brains. When I contacted the sisters to ask if they would mind me featuring their products on my blog, they kindly offered to send me one of their beautiful screen printed 100% cotton tea towels so I could see the product for myself. This is the one I was sent:
Beautifully delicately painted Pansy tea towel.
This is a close up of the print. The tea-towel is really pretty, the printing is perfect and very colourful, plus the 100% cotton towel itself is really high quality and pretty absorbent - nothing worse than a tea-towel that doesn't actually dry anything!! I have also washed it once since receiving it and the pattern hasn't budged one bit, which is really important to me as some often fade really fast, which is useless as tea-towels get washed so often. Their tea-towels are £10 each, a little pricy, but totally worth it as the quality really is great, and they are made in Britain too, which is really great.
Here are some more of the items they currently stock:
