Ruru/Morepork Tea Towel

Ruru/Morepork Tea Towel

$20.00 NZD

More often heard than seen, the ruru is New Zealand’s only surviving native owl. Their super sensitive hearing and night vision, combined with near silent flight and 270 degree rotating head make them highly proficient nocturnal predators, feasting mostly on large invertebrates.

100% natural cotton, off-white tea towels are screened with our great range of designs. 51 x 76 cm. Each tea towel is hand-printed using water based inks (heat cured to last!).

Wellington-based duo Kimberly and James have turned their background in biology and “bird nerd” obsession into a t-shirt business.  All of the design and print work is done in-house in Days Bay, New Zealand - from rough sketches through to finished art work, transferring the art to silk screens and printing. They screen-print all products by hand, using low environmental impact water-based inks. Their t-shirts are designed in New Zealand, and made in either China or Bangladesh. The production facilities are all W.R.A.P (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified , ensuring a sweat-shop free product and ethical work conditions.
