'When class-robbery is abolished every man will reap the fruits of his labour.’
We’ve combined one William Morris’ classic designs The Strawberry Thief and a radical quote by him in a perfect marriage of his two passions: art and activism. A British artist, poet, novelist, and ardent socialist, Morris is best known as the 19th century's most celebrated textile designer, responsible for the some of the most recognisable textile patterns from the century. He was a radical in both his art and politics, refusing to follow the consensus. Disillusioned by the Victorian era's focus on dehumanising industrial systems that produced poor-quality, 'unnatural' objects, Morris championed a principle of handmade production, establishing the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Aware of the deep divisions in contemporary society, he declared himself a socialist, and in 1884 he helped set up a new group called the Socialist League, making frequent street-corner speeches and using his fame and artwork to further these objectives. So, go on – add to basket. This Strawberry Thief tea towel is a sweet steal!

The fabric quality is very high and the colors are bold and eye-catching.
A good tea towel as opposed to a "dish towel" is hard to find here in the states. This was the first towel I ordered from Radical Tea Towel, and the quality is unbelievable. Wash as instructed, and this beauty should have a long service, and is sure to draw praise.
