What could be more English in its glorious eccentricity then these gorgeous but slightly mad fabrics from Thornback & Peel, London-based creators of hand printed textiles homeware and accessories.

Julia Thornback & Delia Peel are famous for their jaunty juxtaposition of 19th Century engravings with geometric pattern and a contemporary modern palette. Their work is inspired by an eclectic mixture of Victoriana and a celebration of the quirkiness of British humour and design. It can’t help but make you smile.

We’ve had our eyes on their quirky Jelly & Pigeon print since it was first launched in 2006 and although previously only available as fabric and cushion, Jelly & Pigeon is now available for the first time in more affordable kitchen textiles including oven gloves, tea towels, aprons and napkins. Hurrah!

We also love the quaint Raspberry Jelly & Pudding fabric which comes on an ivory or stone background and will perfectly adorn a kitchen or girls bedroom. My daughter has her sweet little eyes on this for her next bedroom curtains.

New for this Spring is another wonderful design. Chicken & Carnation is a three colour illustration, featuring a strutting hen amongst a bed of pink and yellow flowers. This print is also available across a variety of kitchen textiles including aprons and oven gloves, as well as on napkins and as a shopper.

All made from 100% cotton they make a wonderful gift, or a beautiful everyday luxury for the kitchen or dining room.
