Another way to enjoy vintage in the home? By seeing the world- with travel- themed tea towels. Often souvenirs, commonly found in excellent condition and available at reasonable price points- these are wonderfully useful kitschy additions to your home. Find one you love too much to sully? It'll easily fit into a standard poster frame.
I have one of these in my personal collection- this classic Union Jack is available from pixiedustlinens.
Other favorites of mine- though no longer crisp and pristine- include a London Tube map, the Chicago skyline, a Jamaican coffee history, a history of Italian cheese on the "boot" and an Australian Koala bear with a flight bag.
And who could forget this, um, special example hanging in my laundry room?
Do you use your collections of vintage tea towels or decorate with them? Do you collect by theme, designer, regions of the world, or simply buy whichever ones you fancy?
