STOP - DO NOT PURCHASE THIS SET OF TOWELS! Puxrchase the Luxurious Rayon from Bamboo Towesl set of 6 #13024451 instead. I purchased both sets of towels to see which set of towels I would like better and they are the IDENTICAL PRODUCTS, PACKAGING, MANUFACTUROR, etc. Both are made by Pure Fiber and Mfg in Pakistan. With item #13024451, you get two ( yes 2) packages of the 3 towels set for approximately $14 more (approximately $$/set). They are truly identical products except for the price. I was definitely fooled due to the lack of product information listed for both products. They are an excellent set of towels.
I should have been forewarned by the other reviews, but I really didn't think the thinness of the towels would bother me. It turns out they are thin, losing fibers every time we use them, leaving lint everywhere, and they are slippery, not really very absorbent. They are a very pretty color (barley), and they hang like a soft cloth. I am not at all used to have such a flimsy texture to my towels. I'm rating them fair, because they seem to be fairly stain resistant, are very pretty to look at, and don't weigh down our washing machine. However, I would not recommend these to a friend who wanted a towel to actually do the job of a towel.
I really like the towels. They're soft and very absorbent. I thought the price was a bit high. The color was a disappointment and not at all as depicted. In the picture online, the Dreamy Blue was a nice sky blue color. But actually they are kind of a dull light teal. Otherwise, I'm happy with them and would recommend them.
These towels were the thinnest towels I've ever purchased--as my husband said, they remind him of the dried, folded-up towels that you put in water to make them expand. The product description should really warn customers of the fact that these towels are very thin--that they are NOT thick and fluffy. Admittedly, they are surprisingly absorbent. However, they are already starting to fray after just one wash. I am very disappointed, given their cost.
These towels are very soft and comfortable on your skin, like the other reviews mention they are not the most absorbent or in a cold climate that warm. I live in the south and they work great. I ordered one set and am so satisfied that I will be ordering some more after I finish this review.
I had previously ordered white bamboo towels from Overstock and they are the same brand and same style as this listing. Wonder why Overstock lists them as 2 different items. These towels are not as thick as heavy duty cotton towels, but they are soft and absorbent. I love them. Overstock ran out of red tangerine so I located them online for a much higher price ($35 to $55/set depending on site). This is an excellent bargain and a wonderful towel. They do seem more delicate than cotton towels.
I bought two sets of these towels. The price was great. The colors were accurate, but not steadfast. Any exposure to benzoyl peroxide left white spots. They truly soak up water and dry quickly without becoming musty smelling. They are much lighter than similar cotton or cotton/bamboo rayon towels and I think they also outperform the alternatives. I have enjoyed them for the past year and they are holding up very well. I can't wait to have an excuse to buy some more!

Since I needed new towels and love bamboo fiber sheets, I thought I would try bamboo towels. The towels I ordered were advertised as 100% Rayon from bamboo, soft and silky, and considered luxury. They most definitely were not luxurious! The construction was poor and the towels had many loose strings/strands. While the towels are soft, they are not more absorbant than cotton.
