Gillian Kyle designs

If you're a fan of the humble Tunnocks teacake then you are going to love today's find. Whilst browsing the internet on this fine Sunday evening I stumbled across Gillian Kyle, a lovely shop selling totes, tea-towels, aprons, mugs and cards printed with classic Scottish foodstuffs. Think Iron Bru, Spam, Creamola and the iconic foil-wrapped teacake. Genius. 
This handy shopper is probably my favourite piece of the collection. It's screen-printed in shiny foil so it looks just like the real thing, and is a nice big size (51cm x 39cm), especially good for all those car-boot trips! If you like what you see, here's more of the collection.
How much do you love the grumpy Scottie dog on that shopper, so cute!
If you need greeting cards, Gillian Kyle do a little selection of blank cards which are perfect for any occasion. The Glasgow Breakfast foil card (below, right) would have been perfect for Fathers' Day, but I think I'm a little bit late for this year! Two of their greeting card designs have been printed on an antique letter-press machine, can you guess which ones?
Although in a similar vein to the Marmite merchandise you can buy at the minute, I think these are a lot fresher and more creative. I really like the simplicity of the products and the unique foil-effect on many of the prints. What do you think? Keep an eye out for new products as the company are in talks with a certain iconic Scottish whisky brand.
