Rainbow Terry Pit Towel

What on earth is a pit towel? Well the naming of it seems to be a bit of a mystery but a customer once told me that their father worked in the mines (or down t'pit in this part of the world) and all the miners were given a towel just like these. But there are other variations on its etymology out there! Either way, this recycled cotton towel is ultra absorbent and woven in assorted brightly coloured threads. Perfect to use in the kitchen as a drying mat for washing up, as a hand towel, pet towel or to keep handy with the picnic set. Measuring 45cm x 90cm, it will deliver years of faithful service at home, in the garden shed, garage or on the beach. Machine washable at 60C.

Not quite big enough? Have you seen our new full-sized rainbow bath towel version?! 

Designed and developed by Redecker and Kracht in Germany, quality brush manufacturers since 1935, most of their collection is manufactured at the Redecker workshops, although some items require specialist manufacturing processes in other parts of the world.

With over 80 years experience in brush making, the family owned business continues to work using traditional methods and natural materials sourced from across the globe.

Towel made from recycled yarn - colours vary. We can't guarantee your colour as every batch arrives differently: some batches have no variations and some have large variations. If there is a particular colour you don't want then please ring ahead to check before making your order.
