This beautiful tea towel commemorates the remarkable life and legacy of Robert Owen (1771-1858), a prominent Welsh textile manufacturer, philanthropist, and pioneer of the cooperative movement. Owen's visionary ideals and forward-thinking principles continue to inspire generations.

At the heart of Owen's dream was his vision of a utopian socialist community which would be called 'New Harmony', located in Indiana, United States. The illustration on this tea towel is based on a painting of the time designed to sell Owen's utopian vision, depicting an idyllic society where cooperation, equality, and communal harmony prevailed.

Owen and his contemporaries dared to imagine an ideal society, one where social and economic structures were reshaped to prioritize the well-being and equality of all members.

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.
