      • Product Description: For most households, the great kitchen debate is quite simply, who is going to do the washing up? But on July 24, 1959, the Kitchen Debate as it came to be known, took place at a ground breaking meeting between U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschev at the opening of the American National Exhibition in Moscow. The meeting took place in the kitchen of a suburban house model where the two men discussed the virtues of their respective economic and political systems, comparing the design and technological accomplishments of their countries. So, here's something to contemplate next time you're washing up. 100% cotton tea towel with text: "Would it not be better to compete in the relative merits of washing machines than in the strength of rockets?", Richard Nixon. Cool wash. Created especially for the V&A.
