Drool-worthy Design: Third Drawer Down

Melbourne-based Third Drawer Down creates high quality art-based products in limited quantities, reproducing the designs of Australian and international artists.

The company are best known for their selection of beautifully packaged linen tea towels that can be used for their original purpose, or stretched over canvas for affordable wall art (or even used for crafting and sewing). The range also includes handkerchiefs, bubkins (baby bibs), aprons, pillow cases and ceramics printed with contemporary art.

Australian artists are well represented including fun, contemporary illustrations by Emma Magenta, Kat Macleod, Sarah Parkes, Arlene Textaqueen and Andrew Nicholls, among others.

You can find Third Drawer Down products for sale on the Third Drawer Down online store and at stockists in the US, Japan, UK, New Zealand and Australia. While you are at the site, check out the fun decal art. Just like the rub-on transfers of old, but with cool graphics!
