Homespun Cotton Teatowel
Shanghai
Handwoven cotton
£17

Useful teatowel made from traditional Chinese hand weave fabric sourced in the Shanghai region; the pretty check and stripes are now rarely made, but bolts of vintage cloth can still be found.

Chinese homespun cotton - ‘tubu’ is a coarse fabric traditionally spun, dyed and woven on a hand loom in the home.
The teatowels are made at a social enterprise in Shanghai supporting those with special needs. Their workshop trains disabled and homeless sewing skills, hiring them and integrating into the community.
