Got these along with some other turkish cotton towels from OS to compare. Others were supposedly "Hotel" quality and a plush twist and supposedly a heavier gram weight. The Salbakos Cambridge towels are softer, fluffier, and feel heavier/thicker than the others to me and are about half the price. Loving these towels. No lint issues so far. Seem like top quality and great to start each morning out with a sense of luxury.
I am a towel "snob"...I was very pleased with the turnaround from order placement to delivery receipt. The towels are what I would consider good quality but not any better than what a discerning buyer could find at a big box store or TJX type retailer for the same price or less. I cannot comment on how well they will hold up over time so that may justify the higher cost. The towels were laundered first thing and came out withought any signs of poor workmanship.
These towels are really lovely--they're thick and soft and they've washed well so far. I've had them for about three weeks and have washed them three times and they've come out beautifully each time so far. No snags. They shed a lot in the first wash, so I'd definitely wash them before use. They're a great value.
Was VERY disappointed. I buy from overstock regularly and was stunned to fine such poor quality towels. Product appeared dirty and had many pulled loops. I couldn't give them as present. Kept them and went to Macy's to buy the towels I needed for gift.
These are nice towels and the price was good but they were not as heavy as I expected and when you wash and dry them the first time they lose a lot of fluff. I hope that doesn't continue but I think it might have been just the first wash. The feel of the towels is wonderful though.
