The party, which is reportedly suffering from a funding shortage, emailed members in a bid to raise cash ahead of next month’s local elections.
Scottish Labour general secretary Brian Roy sent the email to thousands of supporters along with a picture of Corbyn signing the Keir Hardie-themed towels.
The attempts to sell tea towels to raise funds has been strongly criticised
The email reads: “Donate £100 or more today and receive an exclusive Keir Hardie tea-towel signed by Jeremy Corbyn.
“All money raised will help directly fund local election campaigns across the country.”
One member who received the email told the Scottish Sun: “They must be mad, desperate, or both. Who the hell is going to fork out £100 for a tea towel signed by Corbyn?
The image of Corbyn posing with a tea towel has been mocked on social media
“Given most Scottish Labour members voted for Owen Smith in last year’s leadership elections they are hardly tapping into a huge market.
“It’s embarrassing. Just look at the state of the photo – it makes us look like amateurs.”

Last week, Corbyn attacked the SNP and the Conservatives for peddling the same “narrow nationalist” agenda as he tried to woo Scottish voters ahead of next month’s elections.
Corbyn condemned Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP, suggesting that local services in Scotland would be subjected to further budget cuts if the First Minister’s party were handed more power.
Speaking to Scotland on Sunday, he claimed the party was “only interested in a second independence referendum” and slammed the SNP’s “abysmal” record after a decade in government at Holyrood.

Corbyn said: “Labour will be focused on delivering quality local services, such as schools and social care, and standing up for our NHS.
“If you vote Labour you will elect a local champion; if you vote SNP you will elect a councillor who is only interested in a second independence referendum.”
