I've never been disappointed in Overstock products--the occasional bad guess on sizing apart--but their quality towels are actually overwhelming. Thick and creamy-textured, these "hand towels" are big and comfortable enough to wrap up a baby. If spa life is your style, these are for you. Humble couple that we are, I think we are constantly surprised by picking up a substantial cloud when we were just thinking "towel." But, you know, luxury is very easy to get used to. And we're getting used to it.;-)
After buying many towels only to be disappointed I finally found exactly what I had been looking for on Overstock. These towels are thick, absorbant and of excellent quality. After washing and drying they come out looking brand new. By far the best towels I have purchased anywhere. Buy these - you won't be sorry.
These are plush, heavy & over-sized towels and wash up great. They are comparable to Restoration Hardware's 802 gram towels (actually, these are higher), and though the color they call 'toast' is a little unusual, it was exactly what I needed. These are the best hand towels I've ever purchased, and got a set of 4 for less than 2 at a high-end home store. I wish I could get the same weight towel set in color and size combinations for the rest of my house. The other reviews were spot on, love them!
I bought these new towels to replace some others which had been in use for several years . These are fantastic!!! Even my husband and grandson like them. The color is so deep and rich...just like a chocolate bar. I combined them with a new set of bedding, some Oriental rugs, and the room is just great. Thankfully, I bought many others, and the cupboard is full. Each person who has used them has commented that they dry off well, and are luxurious, like a fine hotel. Now, we just need to invite some special friends.
These are the best hand towels I have ever had. They are far superior to the "Biltmore for your home" towels. They are super absorbent and wrap your hands in luxury. I am slowly but surely converting all of my towels to white. These are a wonderful addition. Thank you Overstock !
I bought the latte color of these for myself. They have held up nicely the last 3 washes which I have been doing in cold water. I think this is keeping them nicer, although I do already notice a couple of threads coming loose on the base part of towel. I also purchased the Chocolate, and Black color as well for my house cleaning client. The Chocolate color is holding up nicely as well ; those i wash in warm water sometimes cold. I have.noticed a few strings coming loose on those. The Black color unfortunately is crap and within washes looked horrible, it was coming apart at the edges and shredding (not sure whats going on with that color) something was defective in the process of making that specific color. I do love the thickness of the towel, I can rinse my hands a bunch of times while cooking and the towel is never too wet. Even though this is a great quality item, I have seen what can happen so I am only giving this item 3 stars.
Luxurious is not misleading. It took me years to find the quality of these towels they are so absorbent and plush. It was a waste of my time trying to find this quality in retail stores. A bonus feature is a discreetly hidden loop on the back top of each towel for hanging on a peg.
Overall, I am very happy with these towels. They are nice and thick. I had previously ordered complete bath sets of the same towels and have been happy with them. The only downside is that the side seams unravel too quickly. I exchanged one set of towels when they unraveled after one wash.
WOw what a wonderful surprise- these towels are just lovely. The sizes are large and since a bath mat wasn't offered I took the hand towel and turned it into one. I just had them monogrammed and they are lovely. The sea-foam is bright and pretty. Very pleased with my purchase and will purchase again in another color in the future.
