Radical Tea Towel – Product Review

Radical Tea Towel – Product Review

radical tea towel

Sponsored Post – I recently spoke to the good people at Radical Tea Towel and checked out their amazing site, if you haven’t heard of them before either click the link below or the logo above to head to their site and take a look. The business is family run and is about celebrating history’s radical thinkers and campaigners. All their products are designed by themselves, manufactured in the UK with ethical partners, and are reasonably priced.

I was asked if I would like to review one of their Radical Tea Towels featuring a renown author and their Literary Calendar. Considering I run a book blog and I love their site, who was I to say no.

The first thing I had to do though was to choose which tea towel I wanted to be delivered to me. Much harder than you would have thought given that they have some amazing authors including:-
George Orwell, Virginia Woolf, and Oscar Wilde to name but a few. They also have plenty of tea towels featuring suffragettes, politicians, and more.

Don’t be put off by the name though if you are not a lover of tea towels, the site features lots of different items including Aprons, Wash Bags, Calendars, Cups, Christmas Cards, Badges, Magnets, Bags. I could go on.

Maya Angelou Tea Towel

After checking out all the tea towels I still couldn’t make my mind up so the lovely staff at Radical Tea Towel chose for me and selected the ‘Maya Angelou‘ one. I just adore this tea towel and Maya Angelou was the perfect option. It looks so good and I love the message on it ‘You don’t have to think about doing the right thing. If you’re for the right thing, then you do it without thinking.

SPECIFICATIONS: Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavyweight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes a hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. 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.

The tea towel not only looks good but it feels good too. It has a hook on the back for if you like to hook your tea towels up. I like to hang mine over the cupboard door under the sink and having a tea towel with a great message on it means it is the first thing I notice when I walk into my kitchen and it makes me smile.

Each month features a different author, stunning illustration and information about them.

July – Walt Whitman
August – Toni Morrison

The calendar includes a board back and comes in a strong white unsealed card envelope for you to view before posting if it is for a present.

SPECIFICATIONS: A4 size wire bound calendar with hanging loop. Thirteen colour pages plus cover and board backing. The calendar is printed on FSC certified stock which is manufactured from fibre sourced from sustainably managed Swedish forests, the most environmentally-friendly option available. Includes a strong white card envelope.

I absolutely adore this calendar. I found it fascinating that it not only gave me space to write my information on and included upcoming events and literary events, it also included dates from history so I learned something from the calendar too.

For any radical thinkers/campaigners or book lovers, this would make an amazing gift or a treat for yourself.
