Bugler Girl tea towel

The striking design on this radical tea towel is taken from a vintage 1908 poster design by Caroline Marsh Watts. It features a girl marching with a bugle, an instrument historically used to relay instructions during battle. The Bugler Girl certainly trumpeted her battle message loud and clear: against injustice, for equality. She came to be a figure which represented the suffrage movement in the ongoing struggle for the vote in early twentieth century Britain. We see these same efforts by the Bugler Girls of today: the ones who sign petitions, the ones who protest, the ones who march, the ones who persist. We now have more figures than ever to represent our feminist values. Don’t throw in the (tea) towel, keep the list growing: let this feminist gift serve as a reminder to speak out.

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.
