These bonza tea towels by Melbourne illustrator Ruby MacKinnon explore our most nostalgic Aussie food slang.
Whether you're a 'cuppa' and 'sanga' kind of person, or prefer a rough and ready 'tinnie' and 'mystery bag', no self respecting Aussie calls lunch by it's proper name! These 'Grub's Up' tea towels are a celebration of Australian food slang, and a feel-good piece of nostalgia perfect for any home.
In two irrepressible varieties - 'Grub's Up': Aussie Food Slang, and 'Sweet As': The sweets edition - you won't be able to resist Ruby MacKinnon's delicious take on Aussie cuisine. Two, four, six, eight, dig in - don’t wait!
Ruby MacKinnon's joyful illustrations bring a splash of Australian exuberance to any home and these tea towels make a ripper gift for any occasion, being equally happy hanging on an oven door or in a frame on the wall.

*Australian slang is also known as ‘Strine', and its mysteries are learned by Aussies from the cradle. Having said that, ‘Strine' is so weird even Aussies are perplexed by it sometimes.
*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.
