KITCHEN TEXTILES - ulster weavers

We have a terrific showcase on P&P today with a selection of beautiful prints from Ulster Weavers. Whenever I visit a TK Maxx I always look to see what new Ulster Weavers textiles have come in, and I snapped some lovely ones just last week. My favourite was this kitchen accessories print which has retro and Scandinavian vibes. Ulster Weavers have been producing quality Irish linens since 1880 and are renowned for their tea towels, oven gloves, aprons etc. Scroll down to see some of my snapshots from TK Maxx mixed with images from Ulster Weavers website.

DESIGNER - anthea designs

Priyadarshini Das Sharma of Anthea Designs is a surface designer and illustrator from India. She loves drawing inspiration from the folk arts from around the world, and is particularly fascinated by symmetry and colour. Fitting each piece of a pattern like solving a puzzle is her creative meditation. Self-taught, she enjoys depicting florals and animals in her designs. She would love to see her work come to life on fabric, wallpaper, gift wrap, and children’s apparel. I also thought it was absolutely lovely that Priyadarshini generously shared her experiences of exhibiting at Blueprint on her blog here.
