True to our focus and design ethos, these unique piwakawaka tea towels were designed and printed locally, limited edition and we think lovely too! They feature our much loved Blackie - the fantail on our logo and the little guy that inspired this whole Friendly Fantail journey. We are frequently asked for merch with him on it - and these gorgeous quality tea towels are the first of our forays into this realm. We think they're the bomb - we hope you love them too!
Designed and screen printed here in NZ - we like to think of these tea towels as functional art for the kitchen. They are a lovely, generous large size - 700mm by 500mm. They are 100% cotton and printed with water-based inks - so true to our cause - they contain NO BAD STUFF!
Do be aware that being an artisan team, and printing them here in NZ, we have only limited numbers of these - so do get in quickly.
Like our lattes, these tea towels are handmade and in this case, also screen printed. So there may be some slight variations in colour or imperfections that make your particular one unique.
It is super hard to represent colours accurately on screens. The same photo on our screen here, may look a completely different colour on yours. We have tried super hard to ensure that the colour is well represented...but don't be surprised if they look a little different when you receive them.
Do wash before use people. And always wash in cold water. Beware of fabric softeners - they may damage Blackie and his sun. And as with any screen printing do not iron Blackie or his sun.
And as you have probably anticipated - don't dry clean him either! That way you can love this tea towel for ever and ever....or at least until you would like to pass him on to the next warm body!
We hope you enjoy this locally designed piece of practical art for your - or a friend's - kitchen! ;-)
