Granite Tamaki Linen Tea Towel

 

Auckland's volcanoes feature in this brown and black coloured Pauanesia linen tea towel. Designed and coloured by Wellington designer Kirsty Morison to celebrate the volcanic past of Auckland's landscape and to acknowledge the first names given to the prominent volcanic cones by Tāmaki Maori.

Mataaho, 'God of the secrets hidden in the earth' and his brother Ruamoko, 'God of Earthquakes and Volcanoes' are sleeping and it is important that they are respected and honoured to avoid any disquiet.

The border reads
Auckland’s volcanoes are sleeping.
Nga Maunga a Mataaho, the mountains of Mataaho, poke above the Auckland skyline.
May Mataaho, 'God of the secrets hidden in the earth’, and his brother Ruamoko, ‘God of earthquakes and volcanoes’, rest quietly.


Some cones have more than one Maori name and the spelling of the oral Maori names can vary.

Details
100% linen tea towel

You might notice tiny little globules of imperfection dotted throughout the linen Tea towel. These are called ‘slubs’, and they’re actually naturally-occurring and the mark of true linen. These are part of linen’s organic appeal, and are a mark of a high quality, authentic fabric. They are not a fabric fault.

Size
75cm high x 50cm wide

 

Test

Tea Towel Care 
Machine washable with mild detergent.

Linen becomes softer and more absorbent after each wash, which is pretty neat. Linen is ideal for tea towels as it absorbs quicker and more moisture than cotton. Wash linen on low temperatures in lukewarm or cold water. Use the gentle machine cycle and a mild detergent to protect the fibres.
