We are so thrilled with the story of our Rebel Washboard!

Originally washboards were believed to have been made from wood only, dating back to the late 18th Century.  The wooden bars were then replaced with ribbed metal sheeting as this lasted longer, however during WWII, when metal was in short supply, glass washboards were the most sustainable option.

As we are hugely committed to pushing the sustainable boundaries, and who knows seeing the end of the 'washing machine' we love how upcycled whisky barrel staves and repurposed privacy glass window panes today in 2021 make the most special washboard.  But with like everything we create and curate it has more than one use!  This could be a beautiful wall hanging as well as a washboard, but also a serving platter (we love a good strong cheese and Scottish oatcake) and yet a delicate bathroom dish to neatly store your plastic free toiletries.

Each washboard has been made with upcycled materials in Scotland with our Scottish artisan friends, Angels' Share Glass Ltd, who are based in Stirling.  They have also been coated in a food safe raw linseed oil.

At our mill each board has been hot iron branded by hand, with our iconic marque, the symbol of a Prickly Thistle Rebel!  All washboards are part of a limited collection, with only 140 being produced.

Dimensions - 40cm length, 23.5cm width and 4cm depth

All washboards will be packed with recycled kraft materials to ensure the glass is securely protected when travelling home to you.  Also each washboard will be stowed in one of our organic cotton tote bags as an extra layer of protection.

If you need any help with working out your sizes, then check out our Measure Me Size Guide

See Clare, the founder of Prickly Thistle, share more about the collections, how you can build your very own garment, what the design features are and why making clothing on a made to measure basis is making a better future for us all (and looking very rebel bad-ass!)

Rebel washboard arrived to 🇨🇦

We love our Rebel Washboard 🥰. It arrived all the way to Canada 🇨🇦 in one piece. The packaging is perfect. And your attention to the detail 💕 My name on the envelope, the ribbon and pin, and the wrapping was perfect. It may be my imagination but the wood has a wonderful smell, and you can still smell the burning of your emblem on the board. Fresh off the press 😂. Thank you for all your hard work and efforts to keep our planet green. We need more people like you in the world. Cheers from 🇨🇦

“Oh! not sure what this is meant to be"

Gave this cheeseboard to my daughter and her partner as a gift as both lovers of cheese. She couldn’t for the life of her think what it was, and was a little take aback when I told her, but after a wee while it now sits out on a sideboard for all to see. She also went onto your site to look at what else was on offer.

For all of our made to order items we can usually have your made to order and measure clothing to you within 2 weeks, when our fabric stores have your fabric on the roll.

For all items ordered as part of the 4 X A Year Club, we can have your clothing to you from as early as 2 weeks or it may be up to 8-10 weeks if we need more fabric. As we are weavers, its super handy right! No waiting months and months for items to pass around various factories, we do it all under one roof.

There is loads of cool things you can do and do not need to do when you wear natural fibre clothing! For the full low down on all this caring, checkout our guide and for more info on worn wear repairs, here is some tricks of the trade!.
