Peoples Charter tea towel

Chartism was a movement for political reform in Britain in the first half of the 19th century which took its name from People's Charter of 1838 published by one group of activists. The movement represented the grievances of the working class who had no say in the running of the country. The first four goals of the Charter were eventually achieved. The tea towel design shows a contemporary illustration of the Chartist storming of the Westgate Hotel in Newport probably the last large-scale armed rebellion in mainland Britain. A historical gift that captures the essence of this political movement.

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.
