I bought the peach towels and wash cloths. They are wonderful beyond expectations. I waited until they were washed & used as the quality was so good. I had bought very expensive wash cloths from a well known department store and they puckered and I gave them away so I wanted to make sure these were as great as I believed them to be. They are!
Although the Egyptian cotton in these towels is thick and absorbent, I found the workmanship of the sewing to be lacking. Seams are unevenly sewn with threads coming loose already after just 1 - 2 washes. I would not recommend these towels.
Other reviews sounded promising, so despite the low price I ordered these hand towels, only to find that you get what you pay for. These may be Egyptian cotton, but they are very thin, not at all luxurious. Also, they have a horrible and VERY strong chemical odor that I fear won't come out in the wash. I'm sorry that I ordered these, as paying for return shipping may not even be worth it. I love Overstock, but wish they would stick to higher quality merchandise to avoid a regretted purchase. If you're looking for cheap towels, go for it. But if you want nice quality, skip these and buy towels on sale at your local dept store where you can see what you're getting.
These hand towels were just what I needed. The hand towels are thick and absorbent. The edges are strong and are sewn tightly. I'm using them as everyday hand towels. I have washed them several times and they are holding up well. As a note to those considering purchasing these hand towels, the label does state "Deep Colors Bleed". I purchased the sapphire color. To reduce the risk of bleeding, I washed the new towels separately in cold water with about 1/2 cup white vinegar. During washing I checked the water color and they did not appear to bleed.
I purchased these for the price. They were a great bargain, so I expected a mid-range quality towel. I was very pleasantly surprised at how thick they were and how well made. My mom saw them a liked them so much I ordered a set for her!
This is the second time I have recieved an incorrect item. Problem: the item number is not included on the packing slip. The second incorrect order of towels didn't even include a packing slip. Therefore tracking for accuracy is impossible. Very dissatisfied and irritated with returm mail inconvenience and expense! Sincerely,

Yes, i would buy the towels again and again. They are the best towels i have purchaed. I have looked in the retail stores for egyptian cotton towels, and i could not find them without microfiber in them. These towels are good and absorbent and take the sanitized wash that i wash my towels in. The new washing machines have extra hot cycle. These towels take the extra heat and come out of the wash like new. I loved them so much that i orded another set for the other bathroom.
I don't care for this color of ivory, too much yellow tint to it, making it a bit off what I like. They are soft, just not as much as I would like. Good purchase if you are needing some hand towels. I got the wash cloths too from another listing.
I've had these for several months now, and I'm very happy with the thickness and feel. I have blue and purple and I haven't been noticing whether or not the color is staying intense so I can't speak to that and whether or not they would be good for company. I use hot water, but no bleach. The quality is great for the price. I would definitely buy these again.
