Exclusively designed for The National Archives shop to commemorate the 70th anniversary this 100% cotton tea towel features the official festival logo design on a contemporary sheet of postage stamps which are held in the collection.
This logo also featured on posters, souvenirs and guidebooks and became emblematic of what became known as ‘Festival Style.’
The tea towel comes folded and presented with a printed card band featuring the stamp image. The tea towel has a loop label branded with The National Archives logo.
Devised as a ‘tonic for the nation’ the Festival illustrated the British contribution to civilisation, past, present and future by showcasing the arts, sciences, technology and designs of the times through the lens of history.
The National Archives holds many thousands of unique items which tell the story of the Festival including photographs, plans, objects from the Festival site as well as documents and official memos.
