While Mr Adams has his own thoughts on the varied uses of towels (see below), we espouse their virtues for other reasons. Kneeling to work at awkward heights? Cushion your knees! Lunchbreak and nowhere to sit? Chuck one down! Sweaty brow? Mop it up! Or wet it on a hot day for some cooling releif.
These towels feature traditional Japanese tools in their designs - carpenter's tools on the red version, and plasterer's tools on the grey.
All measure 120cm x 36cm. Will also look the goods on a bar top.
“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”
-Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
