Organic cotton tea towel, tie-dyed with black tea and iron

Organic cotton tea towel, tie-dyed with black tea and iron
£9.50 1 Available
Love this


This tea towel has been made from heavy weight, organic cotton at 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 and Shibori apron for a ‘sustainable kitchen’ combination.

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

Each parcel is beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied with either hessian string, cotton string or plant dyed cotton trim.

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.


Industrial, beautifully distressed, inspired by the bleak, Welsh mountains near where I live. Black tea and iron water react wonderfully to create veins, tracks and smudges on this heavy weight organic cotton. The ‘reveal’ was exciting, as I watched the large ‘bloom’ patterns appear.
