All purpose accessory

I have just fallen in love with a bath towel.

There I said it. Now I hope this is actual love and not just me making a decision when I’m totally stressed and feel like my creativity as at a zero!

Now before you think I’ve gone off the deep end let me explain. This isn’t a normal terry cloth bath towel from your local home goods store. I’ve found some amazing varieties in Turkish bath sheets!


Those stripes are actually comprised of a herringbone pattern!


Lucky for me they also carry something in my favorite color: orange!

You know I’ve never met a stripe that I didn’t love and these don’t disappoint.

They range in price from $24.99 to $53.99 and my favorite part is that you can use them as a towel, picnic blanket, scarf, throw for your sofa, you could even hang them on the walls if you like.

If I’m not going nutty and you enjoy them as well then make sure you check them out here.

I'll take an orange one please :)

I just saved this site to my "shopping lists" These would make great holiday presents, or even a nice housewarming gift.

Have you tried them? I'm wondering about absorbancy? Then again, classic, vintage cheesecloth doesn't appear to be good for drying dishes - but it is THE BEST!

According the site they are really absorptive and they get softer and softer after each wash.

I've never met a herringbone pattern I didn't like...but I've also never met a $25 dish towel that I did like. Luckily it's got multiple purposes! cute find!

That's so funny, I was just looking at these the other day and having the same thoughts. So either we are both nutty or perfactly sane and smitten. They are fantastically multi-functional and surprisingly, not too pricey. Thanks for sharing your source!
