This tea towel is a Gillian Kyle tribute to Burke & Hare - Edinburgh's infamous grave diggers!

"Doun the close and up the stair, But an' ben wi' Burke and Hare. Burke's the butcher, Hare's the thief, Knox, the boy that buys the beef."

This design is from the 'Local Heroes' range by Gillian Kyle in collaboration with young Scottish illustrator Clare Forrest; celebrating colourful characters past & present. Finally you can have a cup of coffee with Robert Burns or spend some quality time drying the dishes with Alexander Graham Bell in your own kitchen! The other characters available in the range are listed below.

'Local Heroes' includes: Robert Burns, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Mary Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Alexander Graham Bell and Burke & Hare!

made from:

Unbleached premium cotton tea towel; screen printed in stone grey. This tea towel has been carefully handmade from beginning to end in the UK by a small, family business that takes pride in every product that they make for us.


Measures 48 x 76 cm (19 x 30 inches) - large enough to tackle even the largest pile of washing.
