I have been seeing increased interest in vintage tea towels, tablecloths and linen calendars. Many kitchen textile manufacturers have come out with nostalgic retro collections of tea towels, potholders and tablecloths. But the best yet, has been the use of vintage tea towels to upholster furniture. Suzie Stanford of Melbourne Australia has designed a number of these for her clients and they are fun and timeless! Check out her pieces at her modest website. They are fabulous! http://www.suziestanford.com.au/index.htm This trend seems to have spread across the continent.
