Renova designer toilet paper


What do you get for the friend who has everything? May I suggest high fashion toilet paper from Portugese paper products company Renova? Just look at these gorgeous colors, and the swirly design on the sheets. And when you order them in gift packages of three (for $14.99 to $19.99), they arrive in attractive tubes of similar color. A regular pack of six wrapped in plastic retails for $12.99 to $14.99.

You can find Renova toilet paper in some of the most upscale clubs and restaurants in New York, but it's also available in home product stores, so you can dress up your guest bathroom with them along with those crisp linen towels you never use yourself. At the moment, they come in the four colors shown above: red, orange, green and black (fall and winter holiday colors?). And they're not meant to be purely decorative -- the sheets are nice and thick and soft enough to use on your baby.

I know what some of you will say: how can you even think of using something so pretty as toilet paper? Well, you could ask the same question about decorative soaps and colorful Q-tips (okay, I've never seen colorful Q-tips, but I bet someone will make them now). And consider this thought that inspired the creation of this product: the bathroom has become "the most sanctified shrine of alone time in our global culture."

If you happen to be the recipient of such a gift, and don't feel you deserve to use designer toilet paper for its intended purpose, then you can still make use of them as party streamers.

They've got colored q-tips and they're now common enough that I usually pick mine up at the local dollar store. Cheaper than the q-tip brand, plus it gives an accent of color. That's the key, though: affordability. When this stuff comes down to normal toilet paper prices, THEN I'll give it a shot. In the mean time, you're almost literally wiping your butt with extra cash.

Can't we be satisfied with white color..... than using colors for our toilets...

Colorful Qtips definitely exist. Sad but true. :)

What a shame to waste such a beautiful product... on your butt. It seems great, for decoration. I would get pissed if I caught my guests actually using it (but then again, why would I CATCH my guests using it?)


i am just thinking, i hope my house dosent get covered in that stuff

What the heck? I can't believe this is actually real! What has the world come to! LOL, I just don't see the point...
