If your kitchen needs an injection of fun and color, then hand-printed or organic cotton tea towels might be just what you need.

2. Melbourne based make me iconic use images of historic Melbourne landmarks to produce their ranges of cushions, mugs, prints and tea towels. Their tea towels are hand printed on 100% cotton. $27.00AUD
