Mable Cable’s Labels

I have always said that I tend not to indulge too much in looking at other artists’ work, instead I try to find ideas elsewhere – old packaging, sweet wrappers, and vintage posters. But now I have a new obsession – Mable Cable has been documenting clothing tags from the 1980s and 1990s for some time now, and finally they are being released online. The combination of strange brand names, amazing typography and wavy illustrations makes for highly addictive scrolling. Alongside these square inch artworks are amazing textiles, knitwear and awesome vintage finds. I promise you will find something to make you smile and look twice at the labels inside your old clothes.
