Alexander Hamilton tea towel

'A sacred respect for the Constitutional Law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.'

We’re sure you’ve heard of Alexander Hamilton, (possibly even in a Grammy-winning song) but in case you haven’t, here’s where it’s at: Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. While serving as the country's first Secretary of the Treasury under President George Washington, Hamilton established a national bank system, the United States Coast Guard, and the New York Post newspaper. Hamilton advocated a stronger role for the federal government, and was an active participant in discussions regarding the new US Constitution. He died in the summer of 1804, in, bizarrely, a duel against American Vice-President Aaron Burr. 

Today he’s famous for featuring on the $10 bill and being the subject of a hugely successful Broadway production. So there you go: the man, the money, the musical. (And the tea towel! You’re welcome.)

Specifications: Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes 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.
