Although not strictly a #ThrowbackThursday post, this item is made in a Heritage Mill that makes fabric for the National Gallery so we think it counts.
We introduced a tea towel to the homewares section of our giftware range. After all, you have the mugs and spoons so why not something with which to dry them 😉
You have no idea how difficult it was to find something as simple as a tea towel that didn’t come out of the Far East. We were beginning to feel like dragon hunters; seeking a mythical beast that simply didn’t exist. But then we found a Heritage Mill in Accrington that is producing fabrics so traditional that the National Gallery are using them.
The tea towel is 100% cotton and is a generous 30”x19” (76×48 cm) and is completely covered by the signature Adagio sheet music – you could even try playing it! – and has a handy loop on the back for hanging (unlike many modern ones).
The downside of all this is that it is a little more expensive than the ones you find in poundland, however we still think his represents good value for money at only £8 (+p&p where applicable). Click here to go to the webshop page.
