Queensland to a T

Dull old dishrag, kitsch marketing device, stylised reminder of a treasured time—the humble tea towel can be many things to many people. 

Queensland to a T dishes the dirt on the qualities that made tea towels desirable Queenslandiana and how we see them now. Featuring the Glenn R Cooke Souvenir Textiles collection (holding over 1500 items), this is a unique look into Queensland’s culture and identity. 

So, soak up history and all things nostalgic and memorable while you reminisce, remember and see what comes out in the wash. And be sure to visit the Library shop in store and online to find all the fabulous merchandise!
