Hitchhiker Grade Towels


Embroidered Foolosophy towels

H2G2 3:21 A towel it says, 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, wet it for use in hand to hand combat, or even dry off if it’s still clean
