To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee MAIDEN asked London based illustrator Luke James
to create and produce this glorious set of tea towels!

Luke's stunning designs for these tea towels make a playful nod towards the fact that 2012 is not only the year of the Diamond Jubilee but also the year of the London Olympics! The Queen is variously depicted on a podium, in a photo finish at the end of a race and in a medal.

The Tea Towels are a limited edition of 100 per design and are printed on 100% cotton.

Each tea towel will sell for £16.50 or £40 for the set of three.

The measurements are 45cm x 72cm.

Queen Elizabeth II is currently the second longest reigning English monarch. In another 3 years she could become the longest reigning monarch by surpassing Queen Victoria's record.

The last time a Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in Britain was Queen Victoria's in 1897 and the last Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the World took place in 2006 when Thailand celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the accession of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

The Tea Towels are currently on sale at MAIDEN, 188 Shoreditch High Street and will shortly be available to buy online exclusively at CULTURELABEL
