Cute Towel Art That Will Bring a Smile to Your Face

What is towel art? It’s the art of folding towels to resemble things, whether that’s animals or figures from pop culture. If you’ve stayed at Walt Disney World, you might know firsthand about towel art. Among its housekeeping staff, Disney has numerous towel artists.

Isamu Sasagawa just might be the greatest towel artist in Japan. He’s not just folding animals, but creating all sorts of stuff: baby bottles and women’s laps. He’s created characters like Pikachu, Gizmo from the ’80s movie Gremlins, Blaxploitation hero Superfly, french fries, hot dogs, somebody doing crunches, and even the Rolling Stones kiss mark

Sasagawa has written books about this “oshibori art” (in Japanese, “oshibori” or おしぼり are the small wet hand towels you are given before a meal) as well as created an iOS app. [matome]
