"At least a hundred little elves were standing around the kitchen, beaming, bowing, and curtsying as Dobby led Harry past them. They were all wearing the same uniform: a tea towel stamped with the Hogwarts crest, and tied, as Winky's had been, like a toga."
—Usage of tea towels as clothes for house-elves[src]

These tea towels were originally used to dry china, although they ended up becoming the serviceable uniform of the Hogwarts house-elves, who often wore it tied like a toga.[1]
