Bring a touch of ancient Celtic magic into your kitchen with this stunning Samuel Lamont tea towel. Framed by a colorful border reminiscent of old Irish illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells, this tea towel bears one of the most iconic Irish blessings still in use today. It reads:
“May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
This classic Irish blessing beautifully echoes those which have been used by the people of Ireland for centuries to wish each other good luck and happiness in life. As such, this Celtic-style tea towel would make an excellent addition to your home decor, or an ideal gift for a friend’s housewarming event.
Incorporated into this piece’s intricate border is the world-famous Celtic knot symbol, one of Irish artwork’s oldest designs. Some experts say that the never-ending appearance of the Celtic knot represents eternity -- and we think this is fitting, as from the moment you set eyes on this attention-grabbing tea towel, you’re never going to want to part with it!
