Ruby's 2016 Tea Towel

The Wallace Cotton 2016 Ruby Seeto for Wallace Cotton fundraising tea towel features a delicious and refreshing Watermelon ice block receipe.  

Ruby is such a star for Starship and this latest tea towel is another stunning design in Ruby's repertoire. She has turned her Starship experience and her creative passion into a truly amazing annual fundraiser for the national children's hospital. Through the partnership with Wallace Cotton, this venture has had such a wonderful impact on the many children and their families who need Starship just like Ruby and her family did.

Brad Clark, Starship CEO

The 2016 tea towel is the ninth collaboration between former Starship patient Ruby Seeto and Wallace Cotton.

The design features pastel shades of ice blocks with pansy patterns and while the design is fresh and fun, the funds rasied will support a serious cause for young cancer sufferers - setting up an ovarian tissue cryopreservation banking protocol for New Zeland Paediatric Hameatology/Oncology Services.  This will ensure the option of ovarian tissue cryopreservation and storage is made available to all eligible girls within a nationaly available and approved programme.

Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is the only means of preserving fertitility for pre-pubertal girls who are at high risk of infertility related to cancer treatment.  While international and New Zealand recommendations are that this technology be made available to girls in this high risk group, it is not currently funded in New Zealand.  

The tea towel is available for purchase through Wallace Cotton stores nationwide, via freephone 0800 222 122, onlinehere or visit

As well as the printed tea towel there is also a gorgeous apron and new this year, a special craft project colour-in tea towel which comes with a set of fully washable fabric markers. 

Also available at Wallace Cotton stores in Newmarket, Takapuna, Albany & Ponsonby Central in Auckland, Tennyson Street in Napier, The Old Bank Arcade in Wellington, Ballantynes in Christchurch and Timaru and Arthur Barnett in Dunedin, in addition to Home etc. stores in Tauranga and Palmerston North and Homeward, Te Awamutu.
