Like following a secret code known only to the initiated, you scan alleyways for tiny businesses sporting milk crates, stoops, alcoves or standing bars, and when you've found a place where sitting down is an act of innovation, you'll know the coffee is going to be good. Melbourne's whole heart is devoted to coffee (well, the parts of it that don't already belong to footy or the winter film festival) and while you can get a great coffee at almost any cafe in town, those in the know look for something more...
This 'You're Better than Melbourne Coffee Tea Towel' by illustration and stationery impresarios Able and Game celebrates just one of the things Melbourne holds dear. Able and Game are a Melbourne-based company, and their punny cards, prints and stationery have captured many a heart.
You’ll find your linen tea towel quite stiff at first. This is what makes it great for printing. It will soften after a few washes, and it may shrink a little. Linen’s absorbency improves over time. Best of all, it doesn’t leave pills on your glassware or cutlery!
For best results, wash your tea towel in a cold cycle on your machine with other similar coloured items. It’ll wrinkle in the wash, so gently pull it back in to shape before hanging it to dry on the clothesline. Iron on the reverse side of the print with a warm iron. Don’t tumble dry or dry clean.
Material: 100% European Linen, screen printed in Melbourne, Australia
Dimensions (cm): 50 x 70
