Tea Towels

Tea Towels are said to have originated in 18th- century England, where the lady of the household would use them to dry fine China and delicate tea sets, jobs which were considered too important to be done by potentially clumsy servants. They were also used as a way for said ladies to show off their embroidery skills, and to reflect a piece of their personality through their kitchen. Throughout their history, tea towels often served a secondary purpose as a makeshift tea cosy, which was wrapped around a teapot to keep their tea hot – which is where the term “Tea Towel” originates.
