My new favourite shop for radically good tea towels


I rise. Who doesn't need some inspiration from Maya when drying up?


I’ve written a lot over the years about how much I love tea towels, and what a perfect gift they make for a food lover. And for many years To Dry For have been my go to supplier of choice, for sheer variety.

Hate to tell them, they’ve got competition.

The Radical Tea Towel Company is new to me, but I love them! I mean part of me wishes these guys had been around when I was married. I’d have slipped a few of these into the ex FIL’s kitchen, just for the heck of it.

Oh, I wouldn’t have known where to start, although I love the Maya Angelou one up at the top there. And anything remotely left leaning would have definitely been more me than him. Perhaps a bit of Karl Marx?


Up the workers! A bit of Marx with your drying up.


And a bit of Mrs Pankhurst for good measure.


Equality with the drying up


They might have started out just with tea towels, but they now have mugs, oven gloves, even fridge magnets so all sorts of options for all kinds of food lovers or just anyone you need an interesting gift for. I think I might need some new mugs, a bit of quiet subversion over the tea run perhaps.

A great site to keep an eye on.
