There are so many names for this single item - don't know why, but it's wreaking havoc with my SEO! By the time I've listed all these in one- and two-word combinations, I'm usually out of characters, so thanks, language.
At any rate, this very fact has led to entire articles on the lexicography of the name. This one, in the Huffington Post, is short and sweet, and shows examples of some of the cutest, um, towels ever, outside of Beyond Her.
Don't forget that these little swatches of cloth are cross-trainers. I use them in bread baskets, as mini-tablecloths for snacks and barware, as napkins, placemats. And I use them for workouts, just because, pre-washed and 100% cotton, mine are so absorbent they make terry look weak!
Think they're too pretty to use? Don't be daft! Beyond Her tea towels launder beautifully and look good for years. There's only one thing that changes: they get softer. Oh bliss.
