Description

Pat Albeck, who died in September 2017, was a prolific and well-known textile and homewear designer, affectionately known as ‘the Queen of the Tea Towel’. Her obituary appeared in The Times and the Guardian, and she was the guest on Desert Island Discs a few years ago. Pat started designing in the 1950s and continued working throughout her life, including for John Lewis and Emma Bridgewater. She’s best known for her work with the National Trust, for whom she designed some 300 tea towels from the 1970s to the present day.
