Tea Towel – Kawakawa


This New Zealand tea towel features a Kawakawa leaf design that has been hand carved into a lino block and then hand-printed by myself in my home studio. This design has been printed onto 100% cotton tea towels that I have  hand-dyed using recycled tea leaves.

MADE TO ORDER: Currently some of my hand-printed fabric products are made to order. This means that there is a 14 day lead in time before your item is shipped. This allows for all of the steps in the printing process to be completed after your order is placed. Please email me if you have any questions about a made to order item.

Tea Towel Specifications:

  • 100% Cotton
  • 700 x 480 mm
  • 180gsm grams per square meter, cotton twill
  • Printed on tea-dyed fabric
  • Machine Wash (avoid bleach and optical brighteners)

Printed with water-based ink and heat set. There will be slight natural fading over time with repeat washing.

Due to the nature of hand printing there may be subtle variations in each tea towel, including small variations in the placement of the stamped designs. This is part of the character and charm of hand printed products which you don’t get with mass produced products printed by machine.


  • FREE NZ shipping on all orders over $20

For more information about shipping please visit my FAQ page.


International Shipping: This can be calculated once you have added the product to your cart and before you proceed to checkout. I try to keep my international shipping costs as low as possible, but as New Zealand is somewhat isolated from many parts of the world, shipping can be expensive. Do message me if you live overseas and would like a quote to combine postage costs of an artwork and shop products together.
