Love this


This tea towel is handmade by women in a cooperative in Kerala, India. Organic cotton has been used from GOTS certified mills. It has then been hand dyed in Wales using black tea and iron water. I use a shibori tie-dyeing technique, which produces a distressed, industrial and unique design.

The chemical-free dyeing process is labour intensive as each step takes time and patience; a quiet protest and sustainable alternative to the ‘fast, thoughtless and disposable’ way of producing items in modern society.

Coordinate with the Scrub-a-Dub for an eco friendly combination.

Wash using an eco friendly detergent, preferably below 30°C. Dry out of bright sunlight.

All packaging is plastic free - paper tape, recycled cardboard boxes, padding and corn starch wrapping. All of these materials are biodegradable. The corn starch bags are compostable.
