Co-operative Party Tea Towel – Co-operative Party

Co-operative Party Tea Towel


This tea towel commemorates the founding of the Co-operative Party in 1917, featuring artwork from an early Party leaflet and updated to include the seven co-operative principles that you unite co-operatives all around the world.

‘Co-operation is a theory of society and, therefore, a legitimate basis for a political party.

If there is still any doubt as to the need for political action, this Conference will settle that doubt.

We have things to safeguard, things to stand for, things to achieve.’

– T W Allen, Chairman of the Co-operative National Emergency Conference, October 1917
