Doing the dishes has never been such a pleasure with the finest tea towels from Thomas Ferguson.

Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen has been supplying the world with some of the finest linen known to man, since 1845. Thomas Ferguson was a handloom weaver of distinction, who learnt his trade from Bryce Smyth. Who was, despite his skills, blind since catching small pox as a child. Thomas Ferguson eventually set up his own business in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. The company grew and established itself as a leader and master of its craft. He formed a partnership with his two brothers-in-law in 1866 and created the company Dickinson, Ferguson & Co. In 1883 the two brothers retired and Thomas Ferguson renamed the company Thomas Ferguson & Co. Over 160 years later the company is still a leader in Irish Linen.

Irish Linen is woven from flax fibre and is generally noted for being the best money can buy. It can only be called Irish Linen when it is certified as genuine by the Irish Linen Guild.  Which stipulates that it must be woven in Ireland. This linen is soft and fine with a natural lustre, that under normal use should last a lifetime.

Their heritage striped tea towels are timeless. They come in green, red, blue black or grey and add a touch of class to any kitchen, whilst making the chore of drying up more enjoyable.

Linen manufacturing is a time honoured tradition in Northern Ireland, so much so that Belfast was once even called 'Linenopolis' and Thomas Ferguson rely on all of their knowledge, heritage and skill to create linen that stands the test of time. Time after time.
