These are simply different- in their own class. We ordered these with some heavy towels from Overstock, perhaps because we could not feel either one before purchasing. I thought the heavy ones would be luxurious-heavy. Instead they are like drying off with a cotton bath mat. On the other hand, these make me feel that I am at an opulent Turkish bath. They are fairly light, but lavish, and have their own special weave. An excellent choice & worth every cent of the extra $.
These towels are medium thickness, which I actaully prefer to very thick towels. I find very thick towels hard to use to dry your body and often aren't as absorbent. These are absorbent and did not leave much lint in the drier after the first washing. I expecially like that they do not have a "band" around the bottom. The weave of fabric changes direction to make the accent at the bottom. This is really nice-there is no band to shrink and distort the towels and on the hand towel, you won't be drying your hands on a stiff band!

I always seek out organically-grown cotton for towels. These are thin, but very absorbent. I like that they are thin because they take less space in the closet. Bath and hand towels have a loop for hanging. They launder nicely. I'm pleased.
Looked for organic towel sets all over the interwebs. Happy to find these and based on the good reviews gave them a try. I really like these towels. I thought I would want super thick plush towels but these, although they are not thick, feel really great, have a nice dense texture and absorb like crazy without all the bulk (and long drying time) of the heavyweights. The quality seems very good and they washed up nicely.

I'm shocked at all the excellent reviews, which were the reason I purchased this towel set. The towels are shockingly thin, but even worse, they are undersized. In addition, due to the lack of any trim or decorative stitching, they look exactly like the cheap, throwaway towels you'd be handed at a gym to wipe the sweat from your brow. Even worse, upon drying my hands for the first time, the white bath towel developed a pink discoloration. Unbelieveable. Finally, while I'd be happy to pay more for quality organic towels, these are neither high quality, nor do they come with any certification regarding their organic status. Seriously...I think it's just a ploy to get unsuspecting do-gooders to buy these garbage "Turkish towels." Complete waste - I returned them, but given Overstock's return policy on opened merchadise and deduction of shipping costs (both ways), I suspect I'll get just barely half of my $$$ back. Avoid these like the plague!
I was very disappointed with the absorbency of these towels. I don't need my towels to be thick; what I want is an attractive towel that is super absorbent. My favorite towels are fairly thin, but they are made of high-quality, turkish cotton and are very absorbent. I was hoping to find something similar but these towels were not even close. The only reason I'm giving two stars is because they were nice-looking. But if a towel is not absorbent, it's not worth anything. Returning.
these 2 sets of towels were so soft. I would rubbed them against my face. My husband couldn't wait to try them. They were as good as other reviewers mentioned. I love how they are thinner than other regular towels but still plush and soft. They are much easier to roll and store away when not in used.
Towels make drying off luxurious. They are thicker than I expected and are not too heavy. The most surprising thing was the loop at one end so you can hang them up. My boys never hung things up before.

This is a great organic cotton product for the price. I'm sure you will find thicker more luxurious products out there but for no where near this price point for organic materials. I was completely blown away at how substantial this product was for the price. I bought these mostly because the reviews were glowing and I was not disappointed. This was a finishing touch to a green bathroom remodel and what a pleasant find. I love the little loop on the towel to hang it, nice touch:) I highly recommend. These were delivered to me within 2 days. Overstock has been a treat to order from - one great product after the other.

The fabric, texture and color are lovely but I am completely baffled about whether these are organic or not. The organic nature is VERY important to me, hence the lower review. The stitched in label says 100% cotton (NOT organic cotton) and a paper tag attached says it's organic. If these are not truly 100% organic this would be a very expensive towel set!
Bought the chino color which is a true taupe with no yellow hue - love it. Wish I could find the same color in a bath sheet and shower curtain. We're using these in our guest room and hear they are nice and absorbent. Attached label indicates they are organic but the SEWN-IN LABEL DOES NOT SAY ORGANIC. Why? BOTH labels should say organic.
I am so happy with this purchase! They are soft and quite beautiful. I have washed them a couple of times and they seem to get softer. I love the color (i purchased blue). I might have to get another two sets for my other bathroom (give the kids my old towels!). These are great and organic to boot!
I was disappointed with these towels. I have towels in my linen closet that are over 5 years old, that are not organic, and were inexpensive purchases at local department stores. They may not be organic, but they are LARGE and THICK. I'm paying at least 3x more for these organic towels on sale, and they are not near the quality of what I already have. I assume these are 600gm weight towels. So from what I can see online, there are 900 gram towels that are available, although not in organic that I see. Probably I would have to buy those to equal what I am used to having. Although they are way too expensive. So, I gave these towels to someone who needed new towels and I will keep looking for something better.
I love these towels! They are extremely soft but also very absorbent. I've had problems in the past with towels that were soft but I never seemed to get dry after using them. Not with these. Love them and will be ordering more if I can.
