To be launched at The Spirit of Summer Fair at Olympia, London this is one of a series of tea towel designs Fiona and I have devised to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Unapologetically patriotic and cheerful, it’s inspired by a playing card design and features a couple of flag-waving and crown-wearing corgis and is completely hand-drawn. Printed in Great Britain and available in Royal Blue on 100% cotton from 16th May 2012 at the fair and thereafter online.

  1. I love these commemorative items made exclusively for the Queen's jubilee and I appreciate the creativity of their authors. In my country a lot of them has been made as well as a symbol of the warm relationship that has always existed between Queen Elizabeth and Canada.
