How To Fold Towel Animals at Home Like a Luxury Hotel

You know you’re staying in a luxury hotel when your wash cloth or bath towel is folded into a beautiful arrangement. It’s one of the little touches that signifies the level of care that’s been put into every aspect of your stay, so how cool would it be if—without a lot of extra effort—you could surprise your family and house guests with the same experience?




Here's a few easy tips that our own housekeeping team follow, which shows just how you can achieve this from home:



How to make a towel swan

Difficulty: Beginner | Materials: 1 bath towel (preferably starched)

Try it yourself: 

Step 1: Lay the towel flat in a ‘landscape’ orientation. Step 2: Fold the top corners inwards until they meet in the middle. Step 3: Roll the outside edges inward to the middle. Step 4: Make a downward fold about a third of the way up the ‘arrow’ shape, and an upward fold about two-thirds of the way up. This should form a ‘Z’ shape. Step 5: Lay the ‘Z’ down and squeeze the corners to keep the curves in place.



How to make a towel elephant

Difficulty: Hard | Materials: 1 bath towel, 1 wash cloth

Try it yourself: 

Step 1: Start with the towel flat in a ‘landscape’ orientation.

Step 2: Fold both sides of the towel lengthways into the middle.

Step 3: Roll the short ends inwards until they meet in the middle and fold firmly in half.

Step 4: Stand the U-shape up and push down on the top to ‘fluff’ it.

Step 5: Lay the washcloth out to form the head. Fold the top two corners towards the middle, forming a triangle.

Step 6: Roll the right side diagonally, then do the same with the left so they meet in the middle. Turn it over.

Step 7: Under the two corners that are sticking up, fold down the cuff and pinch it at the back. Hold it tightly while turning the ears inside out.

Step 8: Place the head onto the body.

Difficulty: Medium | Materials: 1 hand towel, 3 rubber bands

Try it yourself:

Step 1: Roll the long sides of the hand towel inwards so they meet in the middle. Step 2: Flip the roll upside down and fold it in half, allowing one side to be longer than the other.

Step 3: Twist the top half of the roll upside down.

Step 4: Place a rubber band around the fold at the top, spreading the towel out so it forms a head. 

Step 5: Place rubber bands on the side of each head to create the ears.





Happy folding!
