Desmond Tutu tea towel

Desmond Tutu tea towel

"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness". Desmond Mpilo Tutu (born 1931) is a South African social rights activist and retired Anglican bishop. He was the first black Archbishop of Cape Town and rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid. Since its demise he has been active in the defence of human rights and campaigns for the oppressed. He has campaigned to fight HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia. This striking design combines the dove of peace and hope with the rainbow of diversity.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48 x 70cm. 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.
