Margit van der Zwaan as The Queen of Hearts at MIF15

A musician and composer from the Netherlands has launched her own special range of composer shower curtains, mugs, T-shirts, duvets and more.

Manchester-based Cellist Margit van der Zwan, who has performed with British bands, Elbow,
Snow Patrol, I Am Kloot and Dutch Uncles, originally trained as a printmaker and sculptor at Central St Martins in London.

Now the entrepreneurial artist, whose grandmother lived next door to the Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály, has turned her particular attention to female composers ­– her collection includes American composer and pianist Amy Beach, Parisian Louise Farrenc and Clara Schumann.

Amongst the unique offerings on the ‘Arty Margit’ Society6 shop you can buy Shostakovich leggings (USD39 / €35.50), Fanny Mendelssohn shower curtain  (pictured top) (USD68 / €61.90 ), and even an Arvo Pärt tank top (USD22).

And it looks like Arty Margit  might have struck the right chord among music fans too: “We should get a set of these for the Barbican Centre dressing rooms” said London Symphony Orchestra on Facebook.
