Puffin Tea Towel
A classic tea towel design with a Puffin at either end, it’s the perfect gift for anyone with a love of Puffins and the English coast.
The design is taken from an original watercolour painting by Iona Buchanan, it’s almost a shame to get it wet.
Running down the sides the Latin name translates as 'little brother of the north' - a reference to the puffin’s slightly monkish look.
As an artist and illustrator, Iona’s original works have been in constant demand since she gave up working in a commercial art gallery some 20 years ago to create her own paintings in preference to selling them.
A botanical illustrator by training and inclination, her subject matter has broadened to include carefully observed birds and sea life illustrations.
Encouraged by clients, friends and relatives to make her work more widely available, she’s introduced a lovely range of everyday household items featuring her beautiful images.
The design is printed on to soft and fully absorbent 100% high quality cotton drill weave.
