Reusable Unpaper Towels
Our Holiday Elf [Krystina] is working hard to get the finishing touches on these unpaper towels so you can enjoy them this holiday season, but there may be a tiny delay.
Holiday Elf Krystina has assured us that that any orders containing unpaper towels will be shipped or locally delivered by Tuesday, December 8.
The images featured may not accurately reflect the final product; there will be a finished seam and snaps on each towels so they can easily roll up and last you many joyous years to come.
Did you know that it takes 17 trees and more than 20,000 gallons of water to make just one ton of paper towels? Eek! (Source)
What if you never had to buy paper towels again? Our reusable unpaper towels help you do just that. Handmade by our owner and founder, this reusable alternative to paper towels will not only cut your waste, but will be a bright and beautiful addition to your kitchen.
Each pre-washed towel is approximately 10x10", with bright cotton fabric on the top and white terry cloth underneath. The towels snap together and roll up just like paper towels. Just toss the used ones in the laundry with the rest of your household towels!
Great for kitchen cleanups, bathroom guest towels, picnics, car trips, and more.
Please note that these are handmade and are designed to waste as little fabric as possible. Because of this, designs may differ slightly from those pictured.

What's so great about the fabric?
We're a bit obsessed with these fabrics, but not just because they're oh-so-adorable (which they are, clearly 😍), but because they're sustainable and support independent artists.
Sustainability: Traditional fabric production takes more than 50 gallons of water to produce 5 yards of fabric. Our vendor prints their fabrics with a process that uses less than one thimble-full of water to produce the same amount. The inks are chemical-free, everything is printed-to-order so there is no excess wasted fabric, and any unprinted fabric pieces are fully repurposed and never sent to landfill. And to top it all off, all fabric is printed right here in the United States, reducing carbon emissions with transportation.
Supporting Independent Artists: Each fabric was designed by an independent artist, who received a commission for their work when we purchased the fabric.
Each full-size towel is approximately 10x10". As each is handmade, size may vary slightly between each towel.
Wash with other household towels as usual. To maintain absorbency, avoid fabric softener. Our wool dryer balls are a great alternative to fabric softener!
End of Life
With proper care these unpaper towels will last many, many years. (Our owner's are 7 years old and going strong!) But, when they do reach the end of their days, the snaps can be recycled and the fabric can be composted.
Made in the USA
I purchased some of these for our household in our continued fight to remove single use items from our life. We've used them for a week now, and while still early, they are fantastic to use. We definitely recommend!
We are so happy to have found a zero waste alternative to paper towels. These are super absorbent (more so than paper towels) and the patterns are so fun! We've gotten so many compliments ont hem from anyone who has seen them. I especially love the snaps on them which makes it easy to keep them together on the roll!
I haven't bought paper towels since I moved into my new apartment in July. Glad to have made the switch!
So nice and so cute!
So glad you like them!
