The novelist and biographer Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) took as her remit the intricate tapestry of Victorian Britain, capturing the diverse spectrum of social class in her writings. From the opulent to the destitute, Gaskell's characters offer a profound glimpse of the struggles and triumphs of contemporary society.

Some scholars credit her writings with laying the foundation for modern feminism, as she depicted the realities faced by women in Victorian society. She investigated the constraints imposed upon women, questioning and challenging the established norms and expectations of the time.

Our tea towel pays homage to her literary prowess and her desire for social justice and greater gender equality.

Half Panama unbleached organic cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees centigrade 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.
