The Spoonflower community is a melting pot of designers from all over the world and during January’s design challenges, we’ll be celebrating this designer diversity with a sampler of five internationally inspired themes. We’ll be starting our adventure in Africa with a challenge welcoming the newest exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and ending our excursion in Japan honoring a traditional paper art technique. Pack your design tool box because it’s time for a design adventure!

We’re getting a jump-start on the holidays with a month of design challenges highlighting your go-to gift of the season, tea towels! Whether you’re doing the hemming yourself or leaving it to the experts over at Roostery, the season wouldn’t be complete without a few new tea towels added to your kitchen collection. Like last year’s challenge, all designs made available for sale in the four tea towel challenges will also automatically be previewed on Roostery’s Special Edition Spoonflower Tea Towel.
