Oxford Botanic Garden & Arboretum

Blue Mandrake Tea Towel


This high grade cotton linen is a perfect addition to the kitchen. Hand screen printed, this tea towel is inspired by the mandrakes growing at the Oxford Botanic Garden.

For more than 4000 years, the mandrake has been the most (in)famous drug plant in the western culture. Myths abound as to the dangers of harvesting roots shaped like the human figure.

This image of the mandrake is based on an 18th Century engraving.
