Battle Of Cable Street Tea Towel


| /

In 1936, 20,000 anti-fascists fought to stop the deliberately provocative and threatening march through the East End of London by Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists; 150 were arrested and 175 injured, but the interlopers were not allowed to pass.

This design is based on The Battle of Cable Street mural, begun in 1976 by Dave Binnington but abandoned in the face of racist vandalism, and finished by Ray Walker, Desmond Rochford and Paul Butler in 1987.

Half Panama cotton (heavy weight, textured finish).
Stitched on all four sides. Measures approximately 48 x 73cm.
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.
