Growing up as a swimmer, towels have become a more important part of my life than I care to admit. For days at the pool at for swim meets, a towel not only needed to dry me off, but it needed to stand out so that no one could take it! (This was a legitimate concern.) For a few years in my early teens, I was the kid with the neon green towel and in college, I was the guy with the fluffy grey towel. I thought I was over my "towel phase" until I saw these works of functional art. I never thought I would ever beg for a $133 towel but I would beg for one of these beauties.
Schönstaub has both towels and rugs in a handful of photo-realistic designs, all of which I would gladly own if ever given the chance!
