Olaudah Equiano Tea Towel

Olaudah Equiano (1745-1797) was kidnapped from a village in what is now Nigeria and sold into slavery in Virginia. He eventually bought his own freedom in 1766 and settled in England (where he married and had two daughters). He supported other ex-slaves in London and wrote a best-selling memoir entitled The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano. As an abolitionist he helped bring an end to slavery in the British empire.

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.
