LIKE so many great things in life, it all started with a dinner party. The chef of this particular gathering was also an artist and as a parting gift, he had hand screened tea towels for all of the dinner guests to take home. Thus began my secret (and admittedly, weird) obsession with interesting tea towels. For some people it’s colour or absorption factor, but give me a 100% cotton towel with an unexpected animal or an assortment of cockney rhyming slang and I can’t resist. This is precisely why I’m currently obsessing over Zosienka and Rosie’s limited-edition designs.
Zosienka and Rosie are two London-based illustrators whose work graces a bevy of must-have pieces (think stationary, tote bags, ceramics…). Their style is decidedly playful and their love for what they call ‘curious creatures’ is reminiscent of childhood, but has grown up written all over it. Dinner table gone a little quiet between courses? The walrus swimming silently in the shadow of the ship, discuss.
