OK people. These are amazing. We acquired these towels from the estate of a well known fashion designer. The zodiac drawings are by Jean Cocteau. These towels were sold in the 1960s at Monoprix, a department store in Paris. They measure 21 × 42 inches. The design is woven in 100% cotton terry cloth therefore it is reversed on the back side. Each towel is in excellent condition. There are a few hard to notice pulled threads causing a gap in the weave.

The price is PER TOWEL. Email shop@raynewyork.com to specify which towel you prefer. Select from Aries, Libra, or Scorpio.

We recommend hanging them from bars as indicated in our photo. They also look good framed.
