Product Description

This Hong Kong Umbrella tea towel is made from sturdy half Panama unbleached organic cotton, making it the ideal eco-conscious choice for your kitchen. The reactive water-based inks ensure the colours remain vivid after multiple washes. Featuring a practical hanging loop, this versatile towel is perfect for drying dishes, glasses, absorbing spills, and safely transporting hot food.

Hong Kong started out as an island, claimed for the British Empire in 1842, and subsequently expanded, mostly with the purchase of a 99 year lease on land on the mainland of China. When the lease came to its end, China pressed for the return of the whole territory to its control. In 1997, the UK made an agreement with China for ""one country, two systems"", hoping that would safeguard the personal liberties of the territory's population. Yet Hong Kong's people felt their rights increasingly trampled on, and demonstrators brought the territory virtually to a standstill in 2014 demanding the right to pick their own leaders. This was the birth of the so-called 'Umbrella Movement' or 'Umbrella Revolution'. Umbrellas were used in defence against the Hong Kong Police's use of pepper spray to disperse crowds, and became a symbol of non-violent resistance.
