This would have been a price in line with getting a good "deal" on a Turkish Towel, which is what it's being marketed as. It also looks just like the real ones i've seen that go for about $40 each. They may have just used the other brands pictures from their website. Upon receiving this towel i was extremely disappointed and will be returning it. The weave is not tight, it's not reversible as it should be and was overall poor quality. If you're not familiar with the real turkish towel, please invest the extra $10-$20 for one and you will see the difference and not look back.
These are the best towels ever! Just ordered 6 more. They wash perfectly. I saw the negative reviews but I think a lot of people don't understand how absorbant Turkish cotton is. That's what's so wonderful about them. They are so lightweight yet they do so much and they dry so quickly.
I don't want to see it this softens up because I doubt I can return it if not. I was swayed by some great reviews and should have measured. It was much smaller than I was thinking it would be, my beach towel is much bigger. This would be cooler if it was sarong-sized, maybe that is what I was hoping for.I The nubby stripe is OK, just not worth it, the fabric seems pretty thin and might stay rough. Glad someone likes it, but it is not for me.
I purchased 2 of these turkish bath towels, and ordered the same color for both. When rec'd the colors were both grey, however totally different dye lots. Even though I'm generally happy with the product, I think that a bit more thought could have gone into sending me two that matched better in color. From that standpoint I'm disappointed in what I received, although I know these towels to be quite wonderful. A matching set would have been nice! I would have rated them excellent had they matched.
