    £6.99 Members' price *


    A cotton tea towel inspired by the Day of the Dead festival.

    This design is inspired by the sugar skulls which feature in the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. The ritual celebrates the deaths of ancestors and can be traced back to pre-Colombian times. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars, called 'ofrendas', honouring the deceased.

    Created especially for the British Museum, the tea towel is made in England from 100% cotton.
