General questions

Why aren't your tea towels cheaper?

We wish we could sell them for less, but we insist on paying anyone who works for us at least a living wage, ethical UK manufacture rather than in China, top quality fabrics and no-fade, reactive inks, as well as first class design involving hours of research. They are not your average tea towel by a long way.

How do I wash my tea towel?

Both our cotton and linen tea towels should be washed at 40 degrees Celsius max. Here's a comprehensive article with all the information you need to take care of your tea towels, from our friends at Radical Tea Towel.

I don’t want to receive your emails anymore. How do I unsubscribe?

We’re sorry to see you go! If you no longer wish to receive our emails, you should find a section at the very bottom of any one of our emails with a link to 'Unsubscribe'. If you can't find it, just email us on hello@townteatowels.com and we'll remove you.

Do you have any retail outlets?

Some museums and bookshops carry a few of our products, but we don't have a retail shop... yet!

Where do the profits of the business go?

We're a brand new business here at Town Towels, so we're still working towards profitability! When that does happen, profits will be shared among family founders, but only after we've paid everyone else involved in the business including suppliers, freelancers, staff and also made donations to good causes. We pay all taxes due (including VAT and corporation tax) and we also make sure our suppliers pay decent wages and meet high ethical standards.
