Wicker Man Tea Towel

This famous image is from Aylett Sammes' Antiquities of Ancient Britain published in 1676.  Sammes was strongly influenced by Julius Caesar’s account of human sacrifice by the Britons in his Commentaries on the Gallic War: “unless for a man’s life a man’s life be paid, the majesty of the immortal gods may not be appeased.”  He went on to describe “figures of immense size, whose limbs, woven out of twigs, they fill with living men and set on fire, and the men perish in a sheet of flame.” 

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.
