It was love at first sight when we first saw the pretty retro patterns on the Caslon&Co cushions, tea towels, oven mitts and aprons.
The patterns are created using antique wooden letterpress printing blocks known as ornaments and fleurons which printers traditionally used to add decorative flair to books and posters. They are rarely used nowadays of course and Caslon&Co designer Andy Rouse has given them a new lease of life by putting his collection to good use (and he's got quite a collection) creating patterns for the home.
Once printed the fabrics are developed into homeware and decorative accessories by skilled craftsmen and women in the UK.
The rather lovely kitchen aprons are a particular favourite of ours as they add a little vintage style to baking or cooking sessions while covering all the practicalities!
Caslon&Co will be exhibiting on the Heart Home stand at Home London from 12 - 14 January. Earls Court 2, London.
Heart Home magazine will be on stand M46.
Also in association with Pressloft UK.
