I bought two sets. One in mocha and one in burgundy. Very soft and pretty out of the package. Three washes and three dry cycles later they are still pilling and leaving lint on skin. I've have had to clean the lint catch in the dryer twice during each cycle. I've also tried brushing them and tried a lint roller, but nothing has worked yet. I feel I've wasted my money.
I ordered the 8-piece set with high hopes. The moment I opened the packaging, I was disappointed. There was this overwhelming chemical-like smell coming from the towels. I assumed it was the wrapping, and so I washed them. Again, and again. And the smell remains. It's so bad I am planning on just using the towels for decorative purposes, because I certainly wouldn't want to rub that smell onto my skin. To boot, the color "peach" is much more pink than anything, and the towels are not even very soft, nor fluffy. Spend your money elsewhere.
The problem with these towels are after the first washing there is a color shift from taupe to orange blotches. Furthermore, they are already fraying with multiple loose strings and threads. Very disappointed and will think twice about ordering linens from overstock. The quality is pretty bad. No returns after washing very disappointed.
I was not happy with color. I feel color descriptions on overstock.com do not match actual color of towels. I kept them because I did not want to keep returning due to color, overall the quality is great it just doesn't match my bathroom.
Good quality towel set. Color of the grey somewhat darker than pictured, which I actually like. One thing that's annoying is the big fabric tag sewn onto every piece. Impossible to cut because it goes into the seam of the towel. This is just a pet peeve of mine though.
I'm so disappointed. I've washed and dried these towels 5 times now and we still can use them because there is so much lint! If you try to dry yourself off with one of the towels you are covered in lint, obviously defeating the purpose. Now I wonder if I will ever be able to use them, or if we will ultimately throw them out. :(
I really like the towels and would definitely order again

THE TOWELS HAD A VERY PUNGENT CHEMICAL SMELL WHEN OPENED FROM THE PLASTIC CONTAINER WE ALWAYS WASH STUFF WHEN WE GET IT AND THE SMELL DIDN''T GO AWAY. WE TALKED TO CUST SVC AND THEY WERE VERY ACCOMMODATING BUT SINCE ITS A REAL HASSLE TO RETURN STUFF WE DECIDED TO KEEP THEM. AFTER SEVERAL WASHES AND PERHAPS EIGHT HOURS OF DRYING/TUMBLING (NO KIDDING) THEY STILL HAVE SOME OF THE ODOR. THE LOOK AND FEEL IS WONDERFUL/BEAUTIFUL BUT THE CHEMICAL SMELL STINKS AND IS OF CONCERN TO US AND OUR BODIES. I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT BUY THEM UNLESS SOMEONE COULD GUARANTEE THAT OUR SITUATION WAS AN ANOMALY. WE WONDERED IF US CUSTOMS HAD FUMIGATED THEM. BTW -THE EGYPTIAN TOWELS WERE MADE IN INDIA.
The towels made a great Christmas gift for my mother. The color was absolutely beautiful, and the towels are very soft to the touch. They are obviously not the best money can buy, but they look good, feel good, and dry your tushie when you hop out of the shower. What more can you ask of a towel?!
