Here’s a sneak-peek at some of the art that will be on display at Margin for the February 2013 edition +
ToDryFor is an online designer tea-towel boutique collating a cohesive collection of tea-towel designs by various artists. Established in 2008 as a retail website, ToDryFor has since created and produced its own range, commissioning emerging and established artists, illustrators, and even filmmakers to transform the humble tea towel into attention worthy artwork.
Artists who have created designs for the unique tea-towels include Rob Ryan, Gemma Correll, Peskimo, Darling Clementine, Julia Pott, Nicholas John Frith, Ben Javens, Stuart Kolakovic and People Will Always Need Plates, to name a very few.
ToDryFor have also branched out into retail with the opening of Comma in Oxford, a retail hub for all things creative.
Most recently ToDryFor has been voted one of the UK’s Coolest Brands for 2012/13 via an independent poll of experts and consumers, all administered by The Centre for Brand Analysis.
Tea towels by ToDryFor will be on display in the gallery area at Margin on the 10th & 11th February 2013.
