NEW DESIGNS: Not one... but TWO new designs!

Pardon? How many new designs do we have, you asked? Just one... oooooh no, oh no no no no - not just one actually but TWO!

Take a lookie.

First we have... 'English Tea Party'. Just perfect for your lovely tea party wedding. Just picture it, you're sitting with your friends on a blanket, in the sunshine, sipping tea, eating cakes, laughing and just generally having a jolly good time old chaps.


And even if it's not sunny. You cares. You can all put your tea towels over your heads for protection from the rain.

Take a closer look at English Tea Party here.

And then.... it's not over yet!

Design two for all your mega trendy nautical lovers out there. Hop aboard the Love Boat (turns out my references aren't as trendy as this wedding tea towel). Introducing 'Under the Sea'...


Up on the shore they work all day, out in the sun the slave away. while we devotin', full time to floatin' UNDER THE SEA!

Take a closer look here.

How on earth do they make those Wedding Tea Towels...?


An old post but still, I'm pretty sure, just as interesting as the day I first posted it so... if you've not seen it before then take another look.

Have you ever stopped, right there in your tracks, and just thought to yourself 'blimey, I wonder how those amazing guys at TOWTT, turn their tea towel designs in to actual tea towels'. YES, YOU HAVE? Then wonder no more, all is about to be revealed...

First, we have to use our artwork to make a screen (they are screen printed after all). The screen looks like this:

Then, the screen is popped in to this machine, where the colour is added, in this example, red. The colours are all mixed by hand to make sure we get the exact shade that we are looking for.

Once the colour is added, it covers the whole screen and then it imprints on to the tea towel (you can't see it but there is a lovely new unprinted tea towel sitting right under that screen).

And there it is. It comes off the printer and goes in to the dryer.


Then we all stand back and admire our handy work.


And that is how you make an Original Wedding Tea Towel! Don't try it at home kids.

For more info, take a look at our gallery on www.weddingteatowels.co.uk or email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk.
