Betsy Ross Tea Towel

Betsy Ross Tea Towel

Elizabeth Griscom 'Betsy' Ross (1752-1836) is generally credited with having made the first American flag. Ross lived in Philadelphia and started an upholstery business with her first husband John Ross. She made flags for the Pennsylvania navy during the Revolutionary War, and repaired and produced other items including uniforms, tents and blankets. She had three husbands, the first two of whom died during the war, and seven daughters. Her grave is at Betsy Ross House, a popular tourist destination in Philadelphia, although it is not clear that Ross lived in the house.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
