Greet the Dawn Labour tea towel

This political tea towel is based on a vintage poster design created by the Labour Party for the 1923 General Election. It requested, ‘Give Labour its chance!’, and the people listened – at 191, the election saw Labour win a record number of seats. Although this was less than the Conservatives 258, it enables Labour to form a minority government with the support of the Liberal Party’s 159 seats. There was a feeling of a radical new dawn approaching, but unfortunately, the sun never quite rose: the agreement with the Liberals prevented the party from implementing much of its promised agenda. Today, with the modern Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn similarly wishing for a chance to institute radical change, the design remains relevant.

 

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.
