The Calm Gallery

If you like cute quotes and bold images but don't want to pay too much for the pleasure, then a good alternative is tea towels.  I came across The Calm Gallery recently and really loved their selection; they produce postcards, tea towels and prints from various artists and regularly get new designs in. Most of them are produced by hand by their artists  which makes them feel pretty unique. One of my favourites was the Eat You Greens tea towel, it's a lovely addition to my kitchen at the small price of £10.

A few of my other favourites are The Immaculate Perception, I love the collage effect and the odd juxtaposition of the girl's head on a branch.

I also have my eye on this Russian doll tea towel by Hazel Nicholls:

It's a great way of adding little bits of art to your home without it costing too much.


At the side of each piece on the website it tells you whether it was screen printed, hand signed and where to find the artist's individual collection. As well as being a brilliant on line gift shop, its also a great platform for artists to showcase their work.
