Oscar Wilde tea towel

Oscar Wilde tea towel

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet. Known for his biting wit, flamboyant dress, glittering conversation and unconventionality, Wilde became one of the best-known personalities of his day and one of London's most popular playwrights. In his essay, The Soul of Man under Socialism, 1891, he expounds a libertarian socialist worldview and a critique of charity while advocating a non-capitalist individualism. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, his novel The Picture of Doran Gray, his plays, as well as the circumstances of his imprisonment for "gross indecency" and his early death in exile.

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.
