Dry­ing hu­mour

Country Life Every Week - - Interview -

The price point for a lux­ury tea towel is usu­ally £10–£12, how­ever, Nicky Haslam’s take on the trend, Things Nicky Haslam Finds Com­mon (the list in­cludes re­lax­ing, or­ganic food and say­ing ‘bye bye’), has sold out de­spite cost­ing £24 for a signed tea towel. ‘It’s taken off well enough to do a new edi­tion,’ he re­veals. ‘I’ll do it un­til the joke gets bor­ing.’

Mr Haslam has a fresh list of bug­bears for the new de­sign. It fea­tures be­ing on time, green tea, hav­ing guests re­move their shoes and ex­cla­ma­tion marks. ‘It’s not so much things I find com­mon in the Nancy Mit­ford sense,’ he clar­i­fies, but ‘com­mon in the sense of an­noy­ing, ir­ri­tat­ing. It’s quite fun be­cause peo­ple do think it’s funny.’ £18, in­clud­ing p&p. To or­der, email [email protected]­haslam­stu­dio.com
