A few years ago items covered with the Union Jack flag was seen as cheap plastic rubbish only purchased by tourists who would bring back gifts for friends and family and memories from their London vacation. These days it’s a different story. Shops and department stores (high end and high street) are filled with home interior and fashion items covered in our very own Union Jack flag. From cushions, photo canvases, tea cosies and armchairs to handbags, shoes and Iphone covers – the print is everywhere!
Italian domestic appliances brand Smeg even does a fridge in a 50’s retro style with the Union Jack print! And the latest addition to their Retro Style range is a fridge with the English flag on it. UK kitchen appliances brand Falcon have a Union Jack cooker at £4,999. So the Union Jack print can pretty much grace your kitchen walls from top to bottom!
