Welcome to the first installment in my Vintage Towel Collection. Our first selection of vintage Americana is this kicky little number from the 1970s.

Note how the Valencia orange and muted olive green colors mix to make a very depressed composition–truly indicative of the sad and lachrymose housewives they were marked to.

this titillating textile is called “Dusty Rose”

Stay tuned.

Next time I’ll be examining Connecticut Casual a short lived series of Neiman Marcus beach towels.
