After searching a variety of local craft shows in search of unpaper towels, but being unable to find any, Bevin Coffee decided to start making her own. As a result, she founded The Unpaper Towel on December 6, 2011. Bevin says that, thanks to her BFA in photography, she loves beautiful, useful items, and the Unpaper Towel definitely suits her style.
When our roll of Unpaper Towels arrived, it was wrapped in white tissue paper sealed with an Unpaper Towel store label. This made it feel special to me–like it was a gift.
After unwrapping, here is how the roll of towels appeared. They were tied neatly with a matching ribbon.
The set I selected for review has 6 beautiful black and white patterns.
One of the key features of the Unpaper Towel are the snaps. The cloth towels are designed to be snapped together, rolled up, then used just like regular paper towels.
When I "unraveled" the roll, here's what I found in the middle. The Unpaper Towels are held to a cardboard core with the help of elastic bands and snaps. These bands are easily removed so that can be placed on other tubes as well. Very clever!
The roll fit beautifully on our stainless steel paper towel holder. And they looked so cute!
I handed the first Unpaper Towel to the Little Mister. He said "Pillow!" then rested his head on it! Obviously, much softer than paper towels! (And, yes, he had to wear the ribbon like a ninja…)
After explaining (and showing) what the Unpaper Towel really was for, the Little Mister went to work wiping off the table like a lean, green, cleaning machine.
Both my husband and I were very impressed with the Unpaper Towels. They are strong, sturdy, and do a great job of cleaning up messes (and with 2 boys under the age of 3, we have a LOT of messes!). I love how cute and unique they are, and I adore how they snap together and can be placed on display on our paper towel holder.
