I heart manatees. Not only are they adorable, they're nicknamed Sea Cows, and they're most likely what sailors mistook for mermaids. Who else can compete? So, of course, when I saw this manatee themed towel in a second hand shop (I believe it's originally a souvenir towel from Florida) I just couldn't resist. It HAD to be a tote! The towel fabric is in excellent condition and with its fusible interface lining, it will stand up to years of wear and washing. In true reduce/reuse/recycle fashion, the lining fabric used to be a bed sheet And its strong cotton webbing handles are ready to carry anything you need to get from one place to another in style.

Height: 12"
