This product does come anywhere close to absorbing water like a traditional (at least in U.S.) towel. I had my doubts about it's absorbency, but took a chance on it because I knew I could use it for other purposes than a towel. Is a nice piece of fabric for a shawl or decoration.
I ordered the green/white stripe towel (16 for and event( because it measured 34 x 64. Most standard beach towels are 30 x 60, so I thought it was great to finally find a little bigger beach towel than the normal 30 x 60. After I washed one in delicate cycle with colors and put it in the dryer, I thought the towel held up beautifully. I folded the towel and stacked it with other beach towels and noticed that it fell about 1 inch short of other standard beach towels (30 X60). I then measured the towel and it measured about 29 x 59. The thickness was ok, although a l little less than what I expected. I am very disappointed in the measurements of the towel. When you advertise for 34 64 and it turns out to be 29 x 59, that is significantly less than you advertised. Sine this was for a group event I most likely will return the towels and look else where.
