Made in Pakistan like many top-quality cotton products, thse towels are much more absorbant and soft than (often pricier) quick-dry towels I've tried. They will work best after the first 2-3 washes. If you have a bathroom susceptible to retaining steam and moisture, these towels don't easily develop the dreaded mildew smell. Just dry them on low heat to retain softness and they're pretty good, especially for the price.
I bought two sets: one blue (I think it was called pool?) and one green (parrot?). Because the towels are packaged in the most insane way, it is tricky to open the set without damaging the towels. (They are folded and then secured together with those plastic clothes tags that stores usually use for price tags. There are DOZENS of plastic tags and they are very tight so they easily rip the towels if you're not very careful.) Both of my sets had snags and tears but I was able to create complete sets with the replacements Overstock sent. They're pretty absorbent and decent quality for the price except that the green ones have already started to bleed/fade and they now have yellow spots. I've been using these for about 2 months, so I don't expect the green set to last long. It's a shame because I really love the original color. So far no problems with the blue towels.
They are pretty towels. I bought them in 2 colors and the hues are lovely, the towels are soft. However they are not very absorbent. Some of the water absorbs but it feels as though they are just pushing the rest of the water around on my skin. I've washed them so many times; if there was some kind of coating on them it should have worn off by now. I wouldn't buy these again.
Nothing to add that hasn't been said already. Very good for the price. Held up well in the wash. Soft and attractive color. ABSURD packaging. You know those annoying plastic things that hold tags to clothing that you have to clip with scissors? Well some genius decided that they should use DOZENS AND DOZENS of them to attach this pile of towels together. I'm not exaggerating either. It took almost 15 minutes just to clip them all and you have to be VERY careful not to cause pulls or tears in the towels in the process. Would someone from Overstock PLEASE tell these people to stop such a ridiculous practice? These would be a 5 star no reservations recommendation otherwise.
I was very disappointed in the quality of this product. They were uneven with construction of the towels. They did not fold evenly and had loose threads hanging from them. Unfortunately they were smaller than expected. Had I read the details of the dimensions more closely I would not have ordered them.
I purchased these towels because I was trying to get as close as I could to the *** Quick-Dri towel I had purchased for my father and really love. However, *** did not carry a bolder color I was looking for so I tried these. Color is perfect, texture is very close to what I was looking for. Only small down side was that they came with a lot of loose strings that had to be trimmed off. Following a couple washes, no new ones have appeared so believe them to be generally solid.
