Cleaning up for a local charity at Christmas


The Chidester Tea Towel is based on a design created by Emily Penny and Matt Burke initially for an exhibition organised by Design Collective Chichester on the theme of ‘Chichester’. The  concept focuses on bringing together the old and the new; the old dialect name for Chichester (still used by many locally) combined with a Pop Art style inspired by the art at Pallant House Gallery.

The Chidester Tea Towel is screen-printed on premium white cotton. It measures 51 x 78cm and is made in the UK. A special edition of 100 Chidester Tea Towels was sold with the entire ticket price going to local charity Stone Pillow. The charity provides a lifeline for homeless people locally, with hubs, hostels and supported accommodation in Chichester, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.

We are delighted that we sold all 100 tea towels in just over two weeks and raised our target of £1,000! If you would like to be notified when we have new stock in, please email
