McCaw Allan - a tea towel collection - booklet.

This link will bring you to the booklet I was commissioned to research and write to accompany the exhibition which was first shown at R-Space Gallery in Lisburn in April 2023. Curated by contemporary artist Robert Peters, the exhibition showcased the tea towel designs of McCaw Allan, now part of the Samuel Lamont Group.


The tea towels are an enduring tribute to the creativity and skill of McCaw Allan workforce, while also offering an insight into changing tastes and manufacturing process over past 50+years.
