The Winner

About this design:

Whether you choose to paint a rural scene, mimic folk-style embroidery or are inspired by an icon like a Swedish Dala horse, we want to see how you weave culture, community and tradition into an artful tea towel.


Folk art is a style that celebrates cultural heritage and reflects everyday life. What we love about this art form? It is of, by, and for the people, and most often features a handmade quality.

Like previous years, all tea towel entries will automatically be previewed on a Spoonflower Tea Towel during voting. Learn more about the ins and outs of formatting your entry to ensure a picture-perfect preview!
