A bold and characterful black-and-white block printed tea towel, featuring a block printed pattern. Two rows of black antique key designs on a 100% linen base.

-- This item is in stock. --

Naturally dirt resistant, heat resistant and highly absorbent, not to mention beautiful, linen is the absolute best material for tea-towels - and it's pretty easy on the environment too. It is made from flax fibre, which is grown with far fewer pesticides and fertilizers than cotton, and is a general all-round good-guy sort of plant. Linen will naturally soften with use.

The key designs (five in total) are copies of real keys -- my favourites from a collection that my boyfriend bought me as a surprise. I have always loved keys. As a child, I would play for hours with an old set of keys that my Granddad gave me; each key opened an invisible door to an imaginary world. I've never quite lost the notion that when you pick up a key, you're seizing the opportunity to liberate - or perhaps to protect - some one or thing.

Measures 50 x 75cm and features a hanging loop and basic care label. A super-practical and beautiful addition to any kitchen.


Thanks for looking!

>If you choose to iron your tea towel, do so while damp, and avoid pressing it into a fold repeatedly (including avoiding the hems if you can), as this can break the fibres over time.
>If stained, soak it as soon as you can. It's completely fine to put your towel in the washing machine -- this won't wear it out as linen is actually stronger when it's wet -- and a hot wash is not necessary because the fibres "release" stains readily.
>Avoid tumble drying and bleaching, as they generally weaken any textile, and avoid dry-cleaning.
>Most of a product's environmental impact occurs while in use, so it's best to avoid washing & ironing until you have to, and avoid harsh chemicals and high temperatures.
