From hero to zero, and back again. 50s, 60s and 70s patterned terry towelling, once the envy of your Gran's bathroom (in her hipster heyday), has spent more recent years lurking in the doldrums of bad taste. But thanks to German designer, Andreas Linzner and his loopy love for this er, loopy fabric, it's looking groovy all over again. Aiming his sights on a completely new generation, it's lucky little kiddie-winks who are enjoying this bit of retro chic. Andreas' endless hunt for pre-loved vintage towelling means that you can choose from patterns ranging from the pretty to the batty. But if you have a favourite towel and fancy seeing it reincarnated as your own personal Terry Pet, then try his bespoke service.
Good for you because that's the next eco-friendly baby gift sorted!
Good for the environment because bringing new life to perfectly good old stuff reduces all that polluting new manufacturing â€“ i.e. poisonous pesticides from cotton farming and toxins from dyes.
