I have a beautiful vintage kitsch Australiana tablecloth which I love (and I’m intending to have framed), and I’ve previously blogged about Susy Stanford‘s use of vintage Australian tea towels and linens in upholstery, so you won’t be surprised that Dishy struck a chord with me.
Designer Hazel Milligan is behind Dishy, a New Zealand company that uses retro inspired fabric designs in their accessories, homewares and clothing. Their fun and kitsch products are a celebration of vintage New Zealand souvenir tea towels.
Dishy’s creations are a fun contemporary souvenir, and a cool way for kiwis to show their patriotism. They do seem to be a much more patriotic lot than us Aussies, don’t they?
