These bamboo towels are silky soft AND super absorbent. I'll be ordering more as my cotton towels wear out. We also have bamboo sheets from Overstock and love them. My family is thrilled to have alternative, eco-friendly material choices that are actually better than the traditional textiles.

These towels are so luxurious that they are close to being TOO thick. To dry, you can only let them dry spread out in a single layer, not folded in half as you could do with a traditional towel rack. We LOVE these towels, but next time I think I'll try something NOT so thick.

Don't think of this a being like a traditional swim towel--it isn't. It is a light, fine quality drying wrap, something you'd find in the old world when thay really knew how to make things. A bit more sophisticated, interesting, and worldly than your traditional swim towel--it has flair.

These towels are very soft and say made in USA which I like. I ordered the Ivory color and they almost have a bit more of a yellowish tint and not cream like I expected. Also, the washcloths are more like fingertip towels than a traditional washcloth that I'm used to. I washed them all before I used them and they are very nice quality. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

I bought these for use with the bath sheets of the same style. The hand towels are nice and large. I like the texture/striping because for me it makes it less boring that plain white ones. They are less absorbant than more traditional towels but are a nice quality and so far have held up through several washes.

These towels are really soft, very absorbent and great sized. As a whole, these towels are bigger than traditional bath towels. We bought the set in Coastal Blue which is a beautiful and vibrant aqua blue. We've washed and dried these towels about 3 times now since purchasing and they seem to be holding up well. They aren't excessive lint collectors and are holding their shape. I purchased these for our daughter who just left for college. I knew space was limited in dorms and after reading the reviews as well as product description I felt purchasing her a thinner towel with high absorbency was the way to go. Less bulk for her to store and less time to spend in the laundry room! These towels definitely fit the bill and therefore in my opinion they were worth the extra cost. As usual, Overstock.com was quick to ship and they arrived in excellent condition.

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.
