I received these towels and gave them a wash according to the instructions on the label. Transferring them to the dryer I noticed that one towels was unraveling at the edges already, like a towel that has been in use for 5 years. Needless to say I returned whole set. Much better quality available for this price.
I bought these based on the positive reviews. When I opened them I was surprised as the details (lines and boxes) don't read - I thought it was possibly due to the gray color (steel). But it's also that the pile is very low - translates to thin - towel. But they were soft and I thought I should try them out. I went to remove the labels. Not just a tag with the plastic, but there's also a sewn in paper tag to remove that is in the hem. Well when I removed the paper, it actually snagged on a loop - and the towel started to UNRAVEL. Yes I tested a tug here and there and the loops just disintegrate and leave unrepairable bald spots if you try. This is before washing, mind you. Thankfully as I am able to return the towels and I have found customer service amazing.
Have been using these new towels now for a few weeks - I like the weight of them - not too heavy and they do not shed as did many other towels I have purchased. The color was true to what showed on the website. They don't seem to be quite as thirsty as I thought they would be, but I really do like them and hope they last a long time.
I got the same product 3 years ago and I wanted to stock up. The towels are nice. The texture/pattern is the same as the sets I got before. However, the label is different. It names a different brand/maker AND the older version says organic cotton while the new set says just cotton, no organic is mentioned. The older towels also have the loop for hanging them on a hook. Now only the largest towel has that loop. They feel very nice and last well.
These are really soft towels. At first I wasn't sure how long they would last due to the amount of lint in the dyer. However, now about 5 months later, they are still soft and the amount of lint has finally tapered off. They are nice big, soft towels and my husband and I use them on a daily basis. I would definitely buy these again.
