From NZ

When ABI Brother returned from New Zealand and stayed the night before he went home, he presented us with this souvenier. It measures only a couple of inches, or 50cmmm, as he gave it to us, but once put in water, it expanded to become a tea towel, albeit a thin one. Upon it are images of rugby shirts but in spite of Victor's best educational efforts, I am not sure if they are the shirts of the common working class rugby or the posh variety of rugby. For some reason I think everybody knows about these shrunken cloths and I am the last person to know. Kinda cute hey.

  1. The world is getting smaller, so why not tea towels.

    I was given something similar years ago when I was in Britain. A friend's mother gave me a shrunken face towel that had Winnie-the-Pooh! I've still got it. V.

  3. I've never seen or heard of these shrunken cloths. They're kind of cute. I assume they stay full size once they've been expanded?

  5. Peter, perhaps we could buy clothes like that.

    Yep V. I thought it might not be a new thing.

    So far it has River. I folded it and put it away and it has stayed the same.

    Corrected Panther. I do know what 20cm is.

  6. Rugby Union, Andrew - which is NZ's national religion.

  7. That'd be the posh one then Victor. The other is just called League. Your efforts weren't so wasted. Or were they?
