I don’t think you should have certain historical figures in your products.

We know sometimes radical figures can be controversial, and what we've learnt over the years of running Radical Tea Towel is that no historical figure has an unblemished record, particularly when judged by modern standards. A lot of thought goes into choosing who and what to portray in our designs, but we do sometimes get it wrong. If there is a certain design that you think is inappropriate, please direct your concerns to and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. 

Tea towels with women's suffrage designs - isn’t that contradictory?

We hear you. That’s why we wrote this piece "Are feminist Tea Towels an Oxymoron?".

General questions

Why aren't your tea towels cheaper?

We wish we could sell them for less, but we insist on paying anyone who works for us at least a living wage, ethical UK manufacture rather than in China, top quality fabrics and no-fade, reactive inks, as well as first class design involving hours of research. They are not your average tea towel by a long way... Read more about our ethical policy here.

How do I wash my tea towel?

Both our cotton and linen tea towels should be washed at 110 degrees max.
We wrote a comprehensive article with all the information you need to take care of your tea towel

I don’t want to receive your emails anymore. How do I unsubscribe?

We’re sorry to see you go! If you no longer wish to receive our emails, you should find a button at the bottom of our radical history emails to ‘Unsubscribe’ or please contact us on 

Do you have any retail outlets?

Some museums and bookshops carry a few of our products, but we do not have a retail shop at the moment. 

How much do you give to charity?

We regularly raise funds for good causes. Have a look at our good causes page to find out more. 

You pride yourselves on your progressive values and equality, so how do you share your profits?

A small amount of profits are shared among family founders, but only after we've paid everyone else involved in the business including suppliers, freelancers, staff and also made donations to good causes. We pay all taxes due and we also insist that all our suppliers pay decent wages and meet our high ethical standards.
