I loved the size and color; however they do not absorb the water well. I had to keep drying the dish over and over. I thought since they were 100% cotton, I would not have this problem. My old ones similar to these did not have this problem.Read More

I seem to be mentioning my sister a lot lately. She always whines that she hates terrycloth for dish-drying. So I surprised her with these to make her happy. Then I thought: why is SHE so privileged. So I ordered them for myself. Now we're both happy. Terrycloth belongs in the bathroom.Read More

Good old fashioned towels with high quality. Am using for machine embroidery and very pleasedRead More
I purchased these towels with a specific project in mind. The reason I purchased them was because they were supposed to be larger than average. They are actually 19" x 28", so someone made an error when writing the ad. The quality is good and I can find another use for them so I am keeping them. I would however recommend that the information be updated so that no one makes the same mistake I did. Enjoy!Read More
If anyone can compare a tea towel from "today" vs one from many years ago, it is impossible to find the ones from long ago. The towel itself is fine, good size and quality. I bought them to embroider on, after washing, they are very hard to get a nice flat pressed surface again. So that is my disgruntlement - if you just plan to use them for dishes and wash and dry, defintely good. I need to figure a way to press them, maybe more starch...Read More
I have been looking for towels like these for months, I intend to use them as napkins for our outdoor Paella Parties. They really fit the bill, good size, absorbent and soft in texture (which is great for wiping your face), wash well, stains bleach out, and they iron up easy, very authentic looking. I may just order another couple of dozen because the price was so much better than any other towels that compare and look like these.Read More
I like to use two types of kitchen towels and this is one of them. These are thick for the type of towel and have that nice retro look. They do wrinkle in the dryer a bit but not enough to make them unsightly. I love them!Read More
