I've looked for bamboo towels for several months - for a reasonable price of course. These are the ones. They are extremely soft, very absorbent, and the perfect size for bath towels. Luxurious, is the best adjective to describe these towels.
The towels are beautiful and very soft, but they're not thick plushy towels, and that's what makes them so "green." I love them, would highly recommend them to anyone, but people should expect a thinner material that dries quickly, never smells (even after a week of showers), and makes you feel good for buying something green.
I've only used one of the 2 sets I ordered so far but the other will be put to use this weekend when I have house guests. So far, I'm loving the softness of the fabric and they easily get me dry much faster than the traditional cotton terry cloth towels I'd been using for years. The thinness of the towels allows them to drive amazingly fast, which is an added bonus in the Miami humidity. I also love the color selections and at the Overstock.com price, they really were a steal.
I have had three sets of these towels for about a year and I LOVED them, they are incredibly soft and absorbent! They are a little snaggy, you have to watch your rings but my main complaint is that over the course of a year's washings they have shrunk......especially at the decorative area near the ends of the towel. So they are kind of gathered up near the ends now. They still perform well but are pretty unattractive. I have always dried them on Medium in the dryer so maybe I should have used Low?
I received these towels today and what a pleasant surprise! These Rayon from Bamboo towels are the softest, most luxurious feeling towels I ever experienced! I don't know what method is used in producing this material but whatever it is.....I love it!!! I was looking for items that are larger than hand towels and smaller than bath sheets.....just the right size for wrapping around my wet hair after showering - very lightweight and ultra-absorbent. I could have bought similar sized towels from a "major department store" but they were just run-of-the-mill, bulky and "blah" (for around $4.99 each). I took a chance on these based on customer reviews; a bit pricey but I got exactly what I paid for and my family deserves the best! Haven't washed/dried them yet, but I think using a low dryer setting will keep the fabric in fine condition.
These towels are so soft and still absorbent, we love them. The size is perfect and they dry very fast. They are lightweight and everything I want a towel to be. One problem or question: What do I do with all my old towels. I only want to use these towels.
These are good towels, especially usefully for the summer as they do not get musty. We were very glad to find regular bamboo bath towels at a reasonable price! Like a lot of fabrics, the absorption gets better after they've been wet once.

These are VERY expensive! Though they are 100% bamboo, their cost is not justifiable. On the other hand, they are not the BB&B variety. This is the first time I've found this with an Overstock product. I like their light weight, but my husband doesn't, preferring a more robust fabric. The bamboo towels are thin & silky. They do absorb well. Nevertheless, I do not consider them a good value & wouldn't purchase them again at this price.
I searched everywhere for good deals on bamboo items after learning about its benefits. I found the best deals here and I am glad I ordered the towels. They are thinner than most cotton towels, yet still very absorbent. They also dry much faster and stay fresher longer than cotton towels. You can pull these out of the dryer when they are mildly damp and let them hang dry the rest of the way without them getting the 'crunchy' feeling that cotton does. I will be buying bamboo towels from now on!
These bamboo towels were so fantastic that I ordered another set! Very soft and silky, yet they dry both my body and long hair better than fluffy, thick Egyptian cotton towels. Just make sure you follow directions and only tumble on low in the dryer, unlike I did with the first set. I put them in high heat and they shrunk just a bit. I will definitely keep purchasing!
