Nelson Mandela Tea Towel


Nelson Mandela Tea Towel

This quote  was part of a three-hour speech Nelson Mandela made on the docks in 1964, before he was sent to Robben Island for life imprisonment. Mandela, a young man in South Africa, was an anti-apartheid activist and the leader of the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC), and these actions led him to be imprisoned “for conspiring to overthrow the state.” I think we can all agree that the state needed overthrowing. 


Fabric Details

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Special inks so colours last in the wash. Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm.

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. Please note size can vary slightly.
