This stunning cotton tea towel has been designed by Cornish artist Samuel G Winterbourn, with Northern Ireland based brand, Ulster Weavers. Otherwise known as The Nature Nut of Britain, Samuel’s passion for the nature and countryside surrounding his Cornish lifestlye is evident in his stunning designs. This particular design, Fairest Fallows, features two grazing deer going about their average day in the woodland. The simple design is heartfelt, and brings a taste of the Cornish countryside into your kitchen.
Made from 100% cotton, this lovely tea towel was made in the UK and would make a lovely gift for any nature lover.
Born in 1987, Samuel Winterbourn has always had a passion for the flora and fauna around him, and having moved from the suburbs of North London to the Cornish countryside, his passion for nature was fuelled even further and he developed a deeper understanding of nature, which shows in his work.
His collaboration with Ulster Weavers includes seven lovely cotton tea towels, each with a different nature inspired design. The subtle tones will look lovely in any kitchen, be it modern or traditional, while the simple yet heartfelt illustrations are enough to brighten up any keen cook’s day.
Ulster Weavers Home Fashions was founded Holywood, Northern Ireland. Creators of fine home textiles, the company can trace its history back the the 19th Century.
Originally weavers, the Ulster Weaving Co was founded in 1880. Ireland was famous for its homespun cloths and Ulster in particular had become famous the world over for its fine weaving. Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the company continued to spin, weave, bleach and finish the high quality linen it had now become known and loved for.
In the 1960’s, Ulster Weavers had branched out into the Home Fashions industry, and have made a great success of this ever since. By 1990, the company was divided into two, Ulster Weavers Home Fashions and Ulster Weavers Apparel, and both still thrive to this day. Ulster Weavers Home Fashions covers all kitchen textiles; tea towels, oven gloves, aprons, gauntlets, bags and gifts, and with 125 years of knowledge in the production of textiles behind them, which is still relied upon to maintain the high standards within the company, Ulster Weavers have a firm grip on their market and a rich understanding of their trade.
Ulster Weavers has held the Royal Warrant as suppliers of kitchen textiles to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II since 1995, a prestigious title which is highly regarded both in the UK and abroad.
