This is an unused- as new- tea towel from 1975. That’s right- it’s fourty-one years old! Older than most of my readers. And it’s French, made in Paris.
Two sage horses look over at a mare and her foal. How very 1975! I note that on Instagram, people post tea towels on ‘Tea Towel Tuesday’ – that’s a thing apparently. I don’t think this tea towel would look out of place.
Ideas for vintage linens – like this tea towel: frame and hang between two dowels. Make a cushion cover [see my own attempts, blogs below] or – give as a gift to a friend who is French, loves horses and happens to be born in 1975. Or give as a gift to someone who is not French and born at some other time- who appreciates irony.
The tea towel is for sale: $AUD25
