Oaks have been an English national symbol since around the sixteenth century and Sherwood Forest, with over a thousand acres of ancient oak-birch woodland, is a sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife - outlaws included!


But there's one tree in particular that stands out among the rest: the magnificent Major Oak, estimated to be around 1000 years old.


Legend has it that Robin Hood hid from the Sherriff of Nottingham in this tree, shrouded up in the branches of its leafy canopy.


This design showcases this truly magnificent oak, voted Britain's favourite tree in 2002.


This tea towel would make the perfect gift for tree-lovers and folklorists and everything in between.


We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes.
