Crop circles have popped up in cornfields and meadows around the world since the 17th century. UFO enthusiasts claim they're intricate patterns signifying landing pads for alien spacecraft, while skeptics say crop circles are nothing more than pranks pulled off by artistic farmers.
Either way, these mysterious designs make perfect patterns for these crop circle towels on Kickstarter.
Brooklyn, NY-based Anatoliy Omelchenko decided to pay tribute to the extraterrestrial-inspired works of art by displaying the designs on hand towels, bath towels and even beach towels. Each towel "features a different crop circle design on them to represent three different cornfields."
The towels are made with organic cotton and come in three shades of green: green-yellow, green tea and forest green.
The forest-green beach towel is 28 inches by 59 inches (71.12 centimeters by 149.86 centimeters), while the green-tea bath towel is 28 inches by 39.5 inches (71.12 by 100.33 centimeters) and the green-yellow hand towel is 20 inches by 29.5 inches (50.8 centimeters by 74.93 centimeters).
The Kickstarter campaign offers the option to buy sets of three crop circle designs, or buy the towels individually. The hand towel is $5 (about £3 or AU$6), the bath towel is $8 (about £5 or AU$10) and the beach towel is $12 (about £8 or AU$15). The basic set (one of each towel) is priced at $25 (about £17 or AU$32). For an additional cost, you can get your initials embroidered on the towels.
If the Kickstarter campaign reaches its goal of $7,000 by March 7, the towels will be shipped by the second half of May.
