These towels will make you feel like you are being pampered at a 5 star hotel. The best towel set I have found on O and I have been trying quite a few. Twice the price of the others, but it is worth it! This is truly a luxurious and thick towel.
I have now purchased three different towel sets from Overstock. I'm so pleased with all three sets. The thickness of this towel is VERY nice and soft. These towels are so much less in cost than towels I have purchased in department stores. The size is great on all pieces....not skimpy. Color was exactly as shown. VERY PLEASED. Will see how they hold up after a lot of washing!! I'm confident they will be great!!
Wow! I bought these for the guest towels, company is coming and my husband uses a bath sheet. Way too big and heavy for the parents :). I read the reviews and washed several times. Yes, there was fluff but it diminished with each wash. They're cotton. I also read the reviews that said they get softer with washing so I have been using them for myself until the company arrives! Only problem is, now I want some for myself! These are the thickest, most luxurious towel I have ever used. Previously, I liked Egyptian cotton, JC Penney, etc. No more, these are TOP NOTCH, thick and sturdy, absorbent and, hopefully, will get softer with each washing. Remember, you should not use fabric softener with towels so the softening process is just use/time. The price is right, too.
For the price I paid I expected perfection, Not! These towels have been washed over and over, still cannot be used, because of the never ending lint. I have ruined other sets , because I washed them together with these brand new Turkish towels, now they are ruined too. What a waste of money!!!! Sure I could return, but that would mean more time and money, no thanks!
I read a lot of reviews before purchasing -- like any cotton anything, they do shrink a little. Concerned because of other reviews, I measured a laundered one against a non-laundered one... it shrank by about 1w x 3L. I've never had anything 100% cotton, including towels, not shrink, I just paid special attention to it because of the reviews, and I just don't see how it's a big deal. I also laundered them separately at first, and with other towels since. No more shedding than any new towel. What I DO notice is that they are quality and a perfect (for me) weight -- a substantial, luxury feel without being super heavy. Love the loop to hang on a back of the door hook. Just very luxurious feeling and not all that expensive, very pleased.
I was really looking forward to these towels given the reviews and was disappointed by the quality. A few had pulls already and I didnt find these to be of the superior quality I was looking for. The loops are quite large and they dont look expensive. I sent them back for a refund. Still looking for a luxurious towel that knocks my socks off.
The quality is very good. Towels are absorbent and hold their shape. A nice feature of the towels is there is a "loop" to hang your towels on the door for quick drying. I was a little disappointed in the color - I thought they would have more pink tones, but they were defintely more tannish. However for the price and the quality I can live with towels that are not the perfect color. I would defintely recommend this product.
After this purchase I think I will have to stop buying from overstock.com. Strings everywhere. Seams not finished. Color not the way it looked on the computer. Cannot be Turkish towels. I bought the real thing in Turkey. Do not waste your money.
For weight and softness, these towels were a great buy. But the Thyme color faded from a pretty green to a weird pale yellowy-green within a few months. I'm scared to buy a set in another color in case it does the same. They'd probably be a great deal in white or ivory.
Soft, deep terry towels, beautiful colors (Cayanne and Celery). 700 GSM is the most you want -- I have some 900 GSM towels and they're too thick and stiff to use! Absolutely no problems with the towels, and they've been washed twice now.
I ordered 3, 6-piece sets of your (Kasstex, "Elegance") Turkish Luxury Collection from overstock.com. I'm familiar with the brand and style, have purchased the towels several times at a retail store, and have always been very pleased. This time not so much. During the first wash, one of the bath towel seams opened up and frayed. Very disappointing.
