Votes for Women Wanted Tea Towel

$22.00

The art on this radical tea towel comes from a 1909 vintage poster advertising the ‘official’ suffragette paper, Votes for Women. Although a simple design at first glance, the poster belonged to a wider visual campaign produced by the Women’s Social and Political Union: one which combined color, fashion, and radical politics. Despite the depiction of suffragettes by their critics as ‘unladylike monstrosities’, our heroine stands empowered and elegant, comfortable in both her femininity and politics.

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.
