A list of my favorite images of animals created by towel origami.
A towel animal is a depiction of an animal created by folding small towels. It is conceptually similar to origami but uses towels rather than paper.
Some common towel animals are elephants, snakes, rabbits and swans.
The exact originator of towel animals is unknown, but their popularity is often attributed to Carnival Cruise Lines.
Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Disney Hotels and Holland America Line cruises will often place towel animals on a patron's bed as part of their nightly turndown service.
Towel animals are also appearing in higher-end hotels and resorts such as Grupo Vidanta's Grand Luxxe Residence Clubs in Nuevo Vallarta and Riviera Maya.
There are several books available on the subject and these books illustrate how one can enhance the towel animals by the simple addition of cut-out eyes and button noses. Some of the creations require the use of multiple towels and, at times, hand towels or washcloths.
