Drool-worthy Design: Laughing Bird textiles

Next time you need a gift for a loved one overseas, DON'T sigh and relegate yourself to a souvenir store. Simply click over to the very talented print designers at Laughing Bird and snap up a gorgeous contemporary Australiana tea towel, apron, lavendar bag or t-shirt and gift card.

I particularly love the linen tea towels that I think are stand-alone art pieces, featuring native Australian flora and fauna (no doubt inspired by the studio's beautiful location in the Blue Mountains, NSW). Have a close look at the kangaroo and joey - made entirely out of wildflowers. And a lot more stylish than a stuffed koala!

You can find Laughing Bird products in the online store and at stockists online and around Australia.

  1. Hi The Cottage Cheese and Blinky St. James. I adore these too. Contemporary but definitely with a nod to old-school souvenir tea towel illustration too.

  2. Tasteful Australiana! I love these tea-towel designs.

  3. Hi Natalie - so cool huh! (although I don't think it will be long before the old daggy Australiana stuff is suddenly hip again).

  4. Hi Steph, here I am burning the midnight oil! These designs are fabulous and agree they would make an awesome gift. Thanks for sharing & thanks for stopping by my site. Wini

  5. Hi Wini - go to bed already! I'm glad you like them too. Something a bit different and definitely something I think that a loved one would cherish. Have a great rest of the long weekend.
