Claudia Pearson Tea Towels

Screen-printed designs for all occasions

Dress Up Your Kitchen

“Tea towel” has a much nicer ring to it than “dish towel,” doesn’t it?

British artist and illustrator Claudia Pearson (who now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.) puts her own graphic spin on the classic dish towel with beautifully rendered designs for all seasons. She’s even designed a special tea towel to commemorate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The tradition of the royal tea towel dates back to Queen Elizabeth's own wedding in 1947, and Claudia’s version is adorned with a representation of Westminster Abbey
and the future queen’s special sapphire ring. It’s a great way to remember all the excitement and anticipation of the royal wedding without flying the British flag from your doorstep.

Claudia's hand-drawn illustrations and modern color palette set apart these tidy tea towels. You can give your kitchen a fresh look with each of her seasonal designs. Made from 100% flour sack cotton, the tea towels are soft and absorbent, and the vibrant designs will stand up to many washings (use of phosphate-free detergent is recommended to preserve the colors).

Grommet Launch Conversation

  • Claudia

    Good day everyone. I am truly excited that Daily Grommet chose to

    share my tea towels with you today. I am an illustrator and my work

    can be found in books and on products of all types including my line

    of tea towels. I enjoy playing with color and design to create

    pleasing collages that convey a story. I am originally from London,

    but now live in Brooklyn. Although I'm not normally one to create

    royal memorabilia, there's a decades old tradition in England to

    commemorate a Royal event with a collector's tea towel and being

    British I just couldn't resist adding one for Will and Kate's wedding

    to my line of tea towels. I am looking forward to answering any

    questions you have or just talking about the Royal Day.

    @Elizabeth: As the royal event approaches, Claudia has quickly sold through her inventory of these special tea towels. We reserved a group in advance for our Daily Grommet shoppers and these are now selling through quickly and may not last. This is the color combination that is available.
