The Hockey Tea Towel: PRE-ORDER

THIS IS A PRE-ORDER! THIS WILL RESERVE A TOWEL FOR YOU, TO BE SHIPPED AS SOON AS THEY ARE READY!

Introducing the second textile collaboration between Eric Dyck and mo.go.po.mo! The Thistles Hockey Tea Towel features is a celebration of the 1924 Lethbridge Thistles women’s hockey team. With the help of the University of Lethbridge’s Dr. Carly Adams, and the Galt Museum & Archive, we were able to cobble together the starting line-up for one of Lethbridge’s earliest hockey teams. Unfortunately, men’s hockey has enjoyed far more prestige and it’s history is far better represented in publications and museums. Very little is known about Lethbridge’s women’s teams, and to our knowledge, there are no artifacts or memorabilia of pre-war women’s teams to be found. In honour of the women and girls persisting at the sports they love, we have designed a colour palette and new logo for the Lethbridge Thistles!

This tea towel is the result of a collaboration between mo.go.po.mo and Eric Dyck. This collaborative process included time spent with local archives, concept development and sketches, illustrative and surface textile design experiments, and mutual approval of the final product. This tea towel features machine embellishment by mo.go.po.mo., and hand-lettering by Eric Dyck.

This tea towel was printed using an eco-friendly print process that consumes no water, uses non-toxic inks and wastes less fabric than traditional methods. We hope you have many years of enjoyment from this towel. It is a linen/cotton blend that can be machine washed with a phosphate-free detergent on a warm or cool delicate setting. Tumble dry low or line dry. Iron on appropriate setting on back of the fabric.
