The story behind the Lobster Tea Towel goes back to the French poet Gérard de Nerval who would walk his pet lobster with a ribbon. His reasoning for this, as printed on the towel itself: "I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don’t bark.."
