Towel Without using particles

Currently trying to create some realistic looking towels without using particles, Still not finished but I was looking for some feedback to see if using particles actually looks better


looking believable, esp good for projects where towel is not the main focus, but rather an extra objects. so is it displacement your using here?

that is correct

Hmmm well and why are you doing it without the particles? It looks fine, but I am quite positive it would look better with particles. The problem is of course the edges, where you can clearly see that the towel is actually flat, without any hair poking away and catching light…

Seems fine to me. Although the edge of the towel looks somewhat plastic (as if the towel was connected to rubber edges.)
