Am very pleased. Would like to purchase more bath towels only, not in sets. Otherwise, Excellent product. Have had other bamboo towels that are sewn with cotton yarn and they shrivel on the edges, but this appears to be sewn with bamboo yarn, so no shrinkage. Maintains shape well.
Well it's just cool having bamboo towels. I see no problem yet. Looks nice. Soft. Absorbent, but probably no more or less so than decent cotton towels. Durability? Way too soon to know. I washed them once before initial use and I noticed no towel lint/particles coming off/shedding during first use. A good sign. I did try to make sure I dried them with low heat.
These towels are thinner than cotton towels, but they are quite dense. Cotton towels seem to often have some kind of treatment to make them feel soft that also makes them not absorb anything until they've been washed many times. No such problems with these towels.
Tencel was one of the first wood-based fabrix back in the day. Having toured the isles & experienced Bamboo fabric for wear-it was a joy to find towels that were made likewise. They are four-times thirsty and 1/2 the weight of comparable high quality cotton towels. Soft as silk & washable without wear....over and over and over again. Our skinz are saying thank you.
These are all they are cracked up to be, lightwieght, soft, super absorbant, dry well. In Florida we need quick drying towels because of the mold and mildew problem. These are so light weight they dry rather quickly. They are the color shown. I am going to buy more.
These are not thick, fluffy towels, but they absorb much better that the thick ones. The weight also makes them dry very quickly. I live in AZ, so I don't have a problem with mildew. However, I sent a set to my son in Ohio (where this is a problem), and he also loves them.
Bamboo is super soft and stays that way. but it takes some getting used to. You have to a little harder to feel like you are getting as dry as you would with normal scratchy cotton towels. we ended up getting a blend of cotton and bamboo.
After reading reviews posted by other customers I expected these towels to be fairly lightweight & thin. They are indeed-- very lightweight & not plush. However, the main reason I bought these towels was for the color (purple). I own other Bamboo/Cotton towels that are twice the weight & softness but I couldn't find any colors I liked. Oh well... it's a trade-off I don't regret buying these towels but I wouldn't re-order or recommend them to friends
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The purple color is beautiful, fairly deep & colorfast
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Color is accurate- quality is below average
They never mildew, never wear-out, they are lightweight so if you are used to heavy, thick cotton towels you may have to get used to that but they are super absorbent and softer than cotton. They feel like silk. Only problem we had was one set that we bleached--I think the bleach changed the towels they became rough. They are environmentally friendly too! All good. I was so excited I ordered bamboo sheets, clothes--they all work great although for sheets I prefer a cotton-bamboo mix:)
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was fairly accurate but I would prefer different color so buying two more sets--one for me, one for hubby.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. EXCELLENT--I have used these for years and I'm replaceing old ones.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
