Zoë Ikin’s Towel Animals Take the Shape of an Uncooked Chi

Towel animals have graced many hotel rooms, but nothing quite like this one. It would be quite alarming to spot one of Zoƫ Ikin's 'Tea Towel Chickens' on a freshly made bed.

Thankfully, these were items exclusively designed by Ikin as take-home gifts for attendees of the Fisher & Paykel sales conference. The unique gift was neatly folded into a chicken shape and packaged in plastic wrap, as if it had just been purchased fresh from the grocery store. Although odd, it is certain that recipients have never been given a tea towel that takes on the shape of a chicken before.

The tea towel is a light shade of pink -- like uncooked chicken flesh -- and printed with instructions to teach the user how to fold and twist the towel into the shape of a chicken.
