‘Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me...’ 

These lines, written by Emma Lazarus in 1883, feature on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in New York. Lazarus was inspired to write this by the sympathy she felt for the refugees fleeing the violence of the Russian pogroms. With over 65 million refugees torn from their homes today and in the face of an ongoing humanitarian disaster, we believe they are as relevant today as when they were first written.

Share in Lazarus’ compassion – for every one of this tea towel sold, we will donate £1 to Refugee Action (www.refugee-action.org.uk) on your behalf. This is an organisation doing some great work to provide support and relief for refugees across the UK, including legal aid, practical support and guidance. Thank you for supporting them and some 65 million people fleeing war and persecution!

 

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 centrigrade 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.
