Literary Tea Towel - Charlotte Bronte


"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me. I am a free human being with an independent will".

These words are from the novel "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Brontë and published in 1847 under the pen name, Currer Bell. Although Jane Eyre is not a feminist novel as we would understand it, the central character has many feminist traits. She has the courage to stand up, to defy the rules of the patriarchal society she inhabits and to speak out each time  she feels that she is treated unfairly. Her major aim in life is not to get married, but to preserve her identity and her freedom.

This tea towel is inspired by a chalk on paper portrait of Charlotte Bronte by George Richmond from 1850. 

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.
