Refugee Tea Towel

"Give me your tired your poor

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore

Send these the homeless tempest-tost to me..."

These lines appear on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty New York and are as relevant today as when they were written in 1883 by Emma Lazarus. The sonnet was inspired by the writer's sympathy for refugees fleeing the violence of the Russian pogroms.

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.
