The towels are a very pretty color (papaya). They wash well and the color does not fade. They are fluffy and big. They just don't feel absorbent to me. I don't feel dry when I am done using them. I am disappointed in them.

I am sorry I did not pay a little more for better quality towels. Although Calcot is a good product, these towels do not absorb very well and the colors are much brighter than they are reflected on site. On my next purchase, I would definitely spend a little more and get better quality towels.

This was my first purchase on o.com and I must say that I am impressed! I ordered the Coffee Bean color and it is rich and vibrant. After the first washing, there was no pilling or fraying and the towels turned out thick and absorbant. I had planned on using them in the guest bath, but after seeing how nice they are, they are moving into the master bath!
These towels disintegrated after the first wash. We had already returned two sets of another brands towels and were trying these. They all seemed to fall apart when washed. Holes, pulls, fraying edges. They must be very old towels or stored improperly so that they had rotted. Cotton must not be stored in damp or very hot rooms. The heat rots the cotton and the damp creates mildew. A shame as they looked nice. Would have returned these as well but had to go on an extended trip so didn't have the chance. Won't order towels again. Haven't had problems with the sheets I've ordered from Overstock. Hit or miss I guess. They were very good about crediting for the other two sets that were returned after the first wash ruined them. So at least they stand behind the customer satisfaction guarantee.
These towels are the softest towels I have ever bought at "O", and I buy all my towels and sheets at the "O". They wash up really nice and the color is beautiful. There was quite a bit of lint first wash...but not excessive. I would definately buy them again.
I love these towels! I've had them for a few months now and they're fabulous. They wash great; the color and texture are just as nice as they were when I bought them. (I have them in papaya.) I plan on buying a set in another color when I move in the fall.
These are very soft, thick towels that wash very well. The only problem I had with this transaction is that I was searching for towels made in the USA. These are made in Pakistan of US cotton. So the search engine misled me and I didn't notice. my fault...anyway the towels are quality.
These are the best towels I have ever used! They are supper soft, super absorbent, dry quickly and wash well. I did notice a few loose threads after the initial washing (put through 3 wash cycles on delicate and 2 dry cycles on low before first use and got about 98 percent of lint off) but I just trimmed them off and have had no problems since. The color is bold and vibrant. I love these towels and use them on my 3 mo. old daughter...I had purchased a set of the supreme 800 gram to use on her (which cost more) but are not anywhere near as soft. Wish these came in more colors.
I rate these towels as mediocre because they really are on the thin side and not very absorbent-- but they aren't the worst towels I've used. I think that maybe these have a bigger loop than I prefer. I've noticed over several washings (I've had these about a year now), that they seem a bit thinner. To me, the quality is on par with buying a towel set from one of the cheaper department stores at your local mall. The towels feel kind of slippery (I know, sounds weird-- but the best way to describe it) when using and your skin doesn't feel truly dry after using them. The color of the papaya set I bought is really nice though and true to the color shown on the website. I wanted to buy something using American cotton/made in USA to support my country of origin but am just disappointed in these towels. My suggestion, spend a little more money and get the La Grande towels if you like thick, absorbent towels that stand up over time.
my daughter in law recently redid her bathroom, and since their 4th anniversary was coming up we sent them a set of these towels in pomegranate, she said that they both absolutely love them, and they are so soft and absorbent. she said i can see for myself when i come out to visit them this august.
First of all, I did not get what I thought I had ordered. My fault... I did not read enough of the description. I though I was getting 6 full bath towels. Instead I got 2 bath towels, 2 wash clothes and 2 hand towels. These towels look good and are very soft. I'm still waiting to see if they are going to unravel after some washings. So far, after one month use they have not unraveled yet. If you like thick towels, these are not for you. They are thin... yet very soft!
the color was a little off, but worse than that, when i held the bath towel up to the window i saw the light shinning through. the wash cloth looked like it was a hand towel cut in half. not impressed for the pice at all. this has been the only thing so far i have been disapointed in. my kid likes them so i put them in their bath room. would not purchase the towels agaon. the only good thing i can say about the towels is they are very very soft.
