Aneurin Bevan tea towel

Aneurin Bevan tea towel

"No society can legitimately call itself civilized if a sick person is denied medical aid because of lack of means" - so argued Aneurin Bevan in 1952 after the Labour Party had established the National Health Service. With a health service threatened by cuts and privatisation, this message is as relevant today as it was when the NHS was founded.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48 x 75cm. Machine wash at 40 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.
