The Tom Sawyer: Band of Robbers Tea Towel

$15.00 USD

Now, we'll start this band of robbers and call it Tom Sawyer's Gang.

We love Mark Twain around the tiny red barn. Who embodies youth more than Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. This image, by E.W. Kemble, appears in the second chapter of the first edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. It illustrates these words of the story (describing Tom Sawyer’s gang):

"Now, we'll start this band of robbers and call it Tom Sawyer's Gang. Everybody that wants to join has got to take an oath, and write his name in blood".

These 100% cotton Down South House & Home dishtowels come in two varieties: Workhorse for $10 and Fancy Pants for $15. Both measure about 30”x30” and are screen printed by hand in a tiny red barn in Georgia.

Here's a question we get all the time. What's the difference between our Workhorse and Fancy Pants towels? Both are great quality and are hemmed on four sides. The Workhorse is a light, loose weave. The Fancy Pants is a heavier, thicker weave. We give the Workhorse to people who are going to get them dirty making memories. We give the Fancy Pants to people who like to iron their tea towels and display them in their kitchens. Stock up your gift closet with our towels for unexpected occasions.
