canadian designer tea towels

It appears like I'm already a little late with this post even though I just found out about these beautifully designed tea towels yesterday! The Bay (Canada's biggest department store) commissioned three very talented Canadian designers to make limited edition linen tea towels for them. The three artists, Alanna Cavanagh, Bev Hisey and Virginia Johnson have each come up with their own unique and whimsical designs. Alanna Cavanagh's tea towel

Virginia Johnson's tea towel

Bev Hisey's tea towel

I say, I'm a bit late because Alanna's tea towel has already sold out! If you'd like one of the other ones you had better move fast. They're only $14.95 each. By the way, the tea towels are made by Ulster Weavers who have the Royal Warrant to Queen Elizabeth II for kitchen textiles. I hope someone in the Canadian Embassy sends her a few!

**UPDATE - Arren Williams, creative director, at The Bay let me know that Alanna's tea towels are still in stock in lots of Bay stores and will be available back online early next week. You can sign up for email alerts on The Bay website if you want to make sure you get one!**
