Japanese manufacturer Ensky will launch a series of handsome Mario-themed towels in Japan in December, online retailer NCSX reports.

The designs are certainly evocative -- the title screen towel instantly triggers a jolt of recognition, and I can practically hear a repeating coin sound effect ring out as Mario swims through the sea of coins in the lower-left sample. I like these!

The towels measure 13.77" wide and 33.46" long -- not quite beach towel-sized, as NCSX notes, but they're not exactly dishrags, either. Whether they're worth an asking price of $23.90 each depends on how big of a Mario fan you are, however.
