Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Toliya travel towel, which bills itself as a soft, quick drying, compact, lightweight and natural towel for travel, bath, sports and other things.
It is on Kickstarter only through this SUNDAY (January 13th) at 6PM EST. All Kickstarter links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.
Toliya travel towel features
Here are a few pictures of the Toliya travel towel
Here are some of the features
Also, even though it’s the same size as a standard towel, when it compacts, it only takes about 1/5th the size of a traditional towel
It also claims to dry 3 times as fast as a regular towel.

I think you have the wrong video linked to this article. The video is showing a microfiber travel towel (nothing new) the Kickstarter is a cotton towel,which if it is lightweight and dries quickly, that is something new. I hate the feel of those microfiber towels on my skin.
