Tromp l' oeil ( definition : to fool the eye ) one way of keeping your towels clean indefinitely. Just give your guests the illusion of soft terry cloth while supplying them with paper towel.
I painted these hand towels along with the towel bar, in an office bathroom where paper towels were used. The colors of the business are red and yellow. Red toilet and yellow sink! The commission was to bring the yellow and red together in this very bland gray bathroom. Hence the painted stripe design on the lower half of the walls. The towels were just a fun final touch. I couldn't resist.
