This tea towel celebrates the life of Welsh textile manufacturer, philanthropist and developer of the cooperative movement Robert Owen (1771-1858). He planned to build a utopian socialist community at New Harmony in Indiana in the US, and the illustration on this tea towel is based on his vision. The utopian socialists (described as such somewhat pejoratively by subsequent generations) had visions of an ideal society. 

Half Panama unbleached organic cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees centigrade 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.
