Prints charming

25 Nov

On a recent trip to the seaside town of Southwold (cute beach huts, brilliant restaurants and the best bakery I’ve ever been to), I visited a local craft show. There, I met Becky Lim, a textile designer and illustrator who was selling gorgeous handmade wooden pendants, decorated with her own bird and tree designs (see below).

Now, just in time for Christmas, she’s branched out, and has launched a range of four beautiful cotton tea towels, printed with foxes, birds and deers. Designed using doodles, papercuts and photos, they’re  classy, unusual, and would also look great framed (see above).

Light and perfectly post-able, I reckon a tea towel and a pendant would make a great gift for someone special.

Becky is selling the towels for £10.99 each at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Patternista. To find out more about her designs (and contact her if you want to buy one of her unique pendants for £12 + £1.20 P&P) visit http://www.patternista1.blogspot.com/ or email Becky at patternista@yahoo.com

PS: As a new designer, Becky is also looking for ideas on how to promote her work. If you can help, email her!
