    A vintage linen calendar tea towel from 1960 designed by the wonderful Tammis Keefe. She was a popular textile designer who worked in the 50s and 60s.

    Calendar towels became popular in the mid 1950s and were often given as Christmas or housewarming gifts. Many had a pocket at the top edge for a rod and string to hang on the wall.

      Love your tea towels!
      They say so much about time and place don't they!! History and style on textile.

      Thank you! You are so right - they do reflect the era to a "tea"!

      I love these. I buy them on ebay all the time. I give them as gifts to people for the year they were born. I also wrap them around a bottle of wine as a gift.
