They say that if you don't like the weather in Melbourne... Just wait five minutes!
Melbourne's weather is so famously changeable that Neil Finn of Crowded House wrote a hit song using a phrase Melbourne folks often utter - "it's four seasons in one day, mate" - in his flat in East St Kilda: "'Cause you go from a blazing hot, sunny day to raining and then it'd be hailing that night." And whether he was talking about the forecast or the familiar emotional roller coaster of just being human, the phrase is as lively today as it ever has been.
Ruby MacKinnon's lovely tea towel is a tribute to Melbourne - to the ways we love our town despite it's drawbacks, and often because of them.
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.
