We can safely say that we have never, ever, at any point in our lives, been quite as excited about a teatowel as we are now. There was that one time when we discovered a right beaut of a teatowel depicting the happy union of Prince Charles and Lady Di hiding at the back of our parents’ stash, but that doesn’t even come close to the excitement we feel now, because now, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we have our very own blinkin’ teatowels. Dryer-upperers across the land: rejoice!
Teatowels, teatowels, teatowels, teatowels. We can’t stop saying teatowels. TEATOWELS.
We brought you tote bags; we brought you aprons; but you demanded the most humble of all drying-up cloths, the teatowel, so now, we bring you the teatowel… prepare yourself…
The gorgeous illustrations were kindly drawn for us and us alone by the talented Emily Hadden and have been printed (by the ever-generous Print Club London) in our Free Cakes For Kids Hackney trade-mark hot pink. We reckon the illustrations look similar to the historical line drawings depicting outlandish jellies of Georgian times, except they’ve been put in a time-machine to 2014 Hackney and made PINK.
We are in love! Teatowel love.
And don’t fret, the edges will be sewn neatly by our own lovely Laura, before she gives them the finishing touch of an FCFK Hackney label. This is them in their “raw” form only. We were just so excited that we wanted to show off our tea, tea, teatowels ASAP. They’ll have done their hair and have their make-up on by the time you see them.
Come to our fundraiser on Sunday 13th April from 3pm at Crate Brewery then.
We anticipate these bad boys will sell like hot cakes, or cold cakes, or any cake really, so we suggest you get there early to stake your place in the queue to our merch stall. And yes, our tote bags and aprons will also be available to buy on the day. Why not collect the trio?!
