William Kilburn dark blue tea towel

William Kilburn was one of the UK’s leading craftsmen in the 18th century. His block-printed cottons were coveted by Queen Charlotte and his work sold for as much as a guinea per yard. Kilburn was admired, imitated, and later pirated – and it's easy to see why. Our tea towel features one of Kilburn’s botanical prints. Super-absorbent, it will add a splash of colour to kitchens.
