When I first opened the package, I thought the towels were beautiful. Nice color, good size, medium thickness and plush but it felt like polyester and I wasn't sure they were going to be very absorbent. After the initial wash, the towel retain its looks, no pills, snags, fraying...beautiful. Upon its first use, I was so surprised how absorbent they were, even after only the first swipe. They are now my favorite towels. Thinking of getting another set!
I am using these to replace other egyptian cotton towels I bought on a promotional sale. The old set was very nice and I was impressed with it's initial quality. They had a heavy weight, dried well, and felt like thick and soft since they were egyptian cotton. I do not like rough scratchy polyester towels. I think soft towels dry you off better.They were superior to my regular cotton towels. I enjoyed them for awhile but the decorative weave pattern did have polyester thread in it. That was bad as of course it began to fray. I like natural products as they tend to last longer thus look better. The towels ended up showing premature signs of aging. I knew I had to get another set but did not want to be cheap this time. I did my research and bought the highest gsm towel set I could while carefully noting the size to make sure I was not getting short changed. The price on this set seemed low compared to other brands so I was unsure if this would be the quality stated. Upon arrival they came packaged like my last set but were much much nicer when I opened them. The decorative weave pattern is one of the nicest I've seen trumping others I've looked at and putting my cheap set to shame. It is all super thick cotton which means its soft and super absorbent. The color was deep and consistant which was a concern as other retailers have unorthodox names for colors and it's hard to be sure you are getting what you think you are. This is a great set that will last a long time. I will be ordering another set to fill my towel rack and also plan on getting the bath sheets. I can't find a single flaw as of yet.
These towels need to be washed several times to get rid of a slight polyester feel but don't worry - they get softer and fluffier. Just be forwarned: the lint from the first two dryer cycles is incredible. You literally have to stand near the dryer and continue cleaning the lint filter but it is well worth it. My only little complaint is some of the loops are torn or not flush with the others. Very minor detail but for the price I think they should be perfect. They do look classy though.
