Arthur Miller tea towel

Arthur Miller (1915-2005) was one of the leading US playwrights of the 20th century. In 1956 Miller was subpoenaed by the House Un-American Activities Committee which investigated the activities of individuals and organisations suspected of Communist ties. The committee was part of the tide of so-called "McCarthyism" (named after Senator Joe McCarthy) that permeated US politics during the Cold War. Miller had drawn parallels with the committee's activities in a 17th century witch trial which he portrayed in his play 'The Crucible'. In his appearance before the committee, Miller refused to "name names" and as a consequence was fined, imprisoned and blacklisted. This is a tea towel for all those who rate the value of truth above that of financial gain.

Specifications: Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). 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.
