Designed exclusively for the National Trust our 2018 calendar tea towel would make a welcome addition to any kitchen.

Our very collectable tea towel was designed by Pat Albeck, who has been designing our tea towels for decades.

This year’s design theme is based on our kitchen garden allotments and greenhouses featuring home grown produce and colourful flowers in Pat's popular style.

This tea towel is made from high quality linen and is durable and hardwearing.

Designed by Pat Albeck, a textile designer whose career has spanned the arc of post-war British design.

She is credited with inspiring Britain's love affair with patterned textiles in the home and in the 1970s she began designing tea towels for the National Trust, in the process elevating this domestic item to an object of art.

Screen printed by hand using water based, environmentally friendly inks onto 100% linen cloth.

Dimensions: 740 x 480mm

Care instructions: Machine washable - Wash at 50°C. Wash before first use.

Comes in an envelope ready for posting.

FREE UK DELIVERY ON ORDERS OVER £50

UK Delivery: 3 - 5 working days from £4.95

International Delivery: 7 - 10 working days from £15

1 stars Made in China Written by

Very surprised to discover, once unwrapped from the card envelope, that this product is ‘Made in China’. Nowhere on NT website or on the outer envelope could I see the country of origin. How does this equate with the ‘Sustainable Procurement’ statement on your website? Ulster Weavers still exists. I will be buying my linen tea towels from them to secure the future of waving fields of blue linen flowers in our countryside and reduce emissions. Very, very disappointed.

5 stars STILL THE BEST !!! Written by

As good as ever, please keep up the quality of linen - there is no substitute !!!

5 stars Good Value Written by

I buy this calendar/tea towel every year. It is always pretty enough to decorate the kitchen wall for a year while serving as a calendar. Thereafter it becomes a useful tea-towel, drying excellently for several years. I am still using the tea towels dating back to 2009.

5 stars National Trust calendar teacloth Written by

Good quality. Lovely design. Family tradition buying calendar cloths for over 40 years. Hang them for the first year then put to use. Prompt despatch and sturdy packing.

4 stars The end of an era Written by

I have bought one of these tea towels for my mother every year since I can remember. This year the linen felt a little thinner than in previous years which is a pity but I was most upset by the total lack of reference to the death of Pat Albeck anywhere on the product description page. This is the end of an era...

5 stars Excellent and excellent delivery Written by

Excellent T towel and delivery excellent too

5 stars Delightful last design by Pat Albeck Written by

I doubt if I will be using this to dry dishes and hope to hang it on a wall in my kitchen and enjoy the lovely design. I always looked forward to Pat's annual creation and will miss it. I am sure that NT wiil find a talented artist to replace her but, for future years please stick to the high quality pure linen that has been used up to now. Cotton or cotton mix just won't do!

5 stars Great Calendar Tea Towel Written by

As always very good quality and packed in a very good box ideal for a small gift with minimum packing.

5 stars brilliant as eve Written by

I, like the 2 previous people have this each year. I do not think that I can add any more comments other than to say as ever it is lovely which gives a year of pleasure.

5 stars Always good Written by

I have bought these annually following a tradition started by my mother. The tea towels are always good quality and look good on display until they are ready to be put into service.

5 stars Traditional and quality meets useful Written by

We always buy one of these while away on holiday, and each January stick it to the fridge with magnets for the year, the next year we take it down, wash it and put it to service doing the dishes. Just a tradition, super quality linen cloth and different designs each year.
