    Incredibly quality

    I ordered the Dark Gray, the Gray, the Fushia, and the Teal colors and I LOVE them!! They will be used in my bathrooms as hand towels and so far, I am very happy with my purchase!! They of course arrived quickly and they were exactly what I needed and the colors are beautiful. I have washed them on the cold cycle and I just hang them to dry. And, I couldn’t be happier with my decision! GET THEM!!

    Not very absorbant and shed fibers

    The towels look and feel great, but even after many washes they are still less absorbant than other towels we own, and also continue to shed black fibers. It would also be nice to have a loop to hang it from, but that’s solvable.

    Nice towels

    The quality of the towels are nice and I like the fact it is sold as a set; however these are extremely long in length. Yes, it does say the length in the description however I feel they are longer than what the pictures show. Overall I would recommend if the length doesn’t bother you.

    Great Purchase

    Works real well as a hand towel. Absorbs fine. Doesn’t smell moldy after repeated use.

    Color not as expected

    Ordered army green. Looks more like the photo if the regular green. Too bright, needing something more neutral of a green like the photo listing suggests. Unopened, can’t speak to quality, texture, feel.

    Soft towels after washing

    The towels are good quality. Even purple pair for a friend.

    Colors not consistent

    Beautiful towels but the color is not consistent. We purchased both bath towels and hand towels. The orange color is beautiful but when ordering additional ones we received a reddish color. The navy is also beautiful but when ordering additional towels received ones that were more teal. Sent them back and reordered just in case there was a mistake but got the same off colors again.They need to be washed and dried multiple times before they become absorbent. Otherwise it doesn’t towel off any moisture and leaves lots of lint on your body.Bought these for our boat to have a quick drying towel and they do dry very quickly even in a marine environment.

    Dish towel?

    Waaay too large to work as a kitchen dish towel. Almost reaches the floor when hanging from my stove. Waaay too thin to serve as a BR hand towel. Not sure what I’ll do with it, disappointed.

    Good looking hand towels

    These Turkish hand towels are great for every day use and as guest towels in bathroom. They wash well and color holds.

    Weirdly long, not absorbent

    I loved the look of this towel… until I saw how long it was. That seems like it would be a good thing, and in some ways it is. You can get stylish with how you hang it if style over substance is what you’re after. If you have kids using it, style doesn’t last long leaving you with substance. I could probably get past the length if it was as absorbent as a regular hand towel, but it is not. I’ve washed and dried these towels and still take twice the time to dry as a terry cloth towel you’d pick up from Costco, Target, etc. In short, I would not buy them again.

    Stylish and so far…no odors!

    I’ve purchased a number of these. Colors are vivid and as shown. They are very durable, wash up well and get more absorbent over time! Love the color choices too!

    Beautiful and functional

    I’ll admit that at times I’m a form over function person. I like things to look neat and tidy. I get the best of both worlds with these towels. They are super absorbent, soft, and very stylish! How often do you have guests walk out if the bathroom asking you about the hand towel? Until now, my answer was never and now it is more often than not. I’m never going back to regular hand towels and the price was very reasonable too! 5 stars all around!

    Great color

    I was concerned that the green would be too green… But it’s a beautiful color and everything ties in nicely.

    Quality Cotton Fabric

    I love the feel of these towels. The fabric is so much thicker, softer, and of higher quality than any other Turkish towels that I have bought in the past. I bought these to make curtains for our camper and really hated to cut them because of the quality. I’m pretty sure that I will purchase more to use in my home in our master bath.

    Worth buying

    I think these towels are gorgeous but I’m not sold on their absorbency just yet but since Amazon is already requesting a review, well… I think maybe a few more washes will help as the fibers in the cotton expand over several washes. I would like to add to those who have complained about the tassels coming undone, you must pull the bottom knots before washing. Knots come undone all the time so it’s not quality that causes that, it’s you not observing them loose beforehand. Also. DONT USE FABRIC SOFTENER! Your altering their absorbency before even giving them a chance, that includes detergents with added fabric softener. And DO NOT put them in the dryer. If you’re not familiar with Turkish towels and are solely looking for aesthetics, do yourself a favor and google how to care for Turkish towels. These towels are gorgeous and I’m excited to see how they hold up overtime. The price made them worth giving a shot.

    Wanted to love these

    These towels are so pretty They are also very big for a hand towel. Unfortunately they are not absorbent at all. Kind of just moves the water around. They look nice but not functional as a hand towel

    Turkish hand towels

    Towel size is good for my needs. Wanted to use in vanity, something bigger than “hand towels” but smaller than bath towel size. Not as soft as expected. Had several snags already in one of the towels, afraid it’ll snag easily. Overall, OK quality, nothing outstanding. Will keep and use and reevaluate.

    Love These Towels!

    These have become my new favorite hand towels in my bathroom. Not only are they beautiful, but they are also super absorbent. I have had so many friends ask where I got these towel and go and purchase some for their own homes. I plan to buy more sets for myself and for my family as gifts.

    Great hand towels

    Hand towels are much longer than expected but ended up being perfect for my space. The material is nice but doesn’t feel very absorbent, the towel feels very wet, very quickly. But I definitely do love them. I will be buying in another color.

    Ocean blue color is pretty

    I got the ocean blue as my accent color in my bathroom. It’s as pictured and looks just as nice as I’d hoped.Towels are soft, though not very absorbent. Pattern is as pictured and I’m happy with them for the price I paid.

    These hand towels are huge! The color is as seen in the picture but even better in person. I will likely be buying more for other rooms of the house.

    These towels are soft, but thin. I bought them more to hang on my towel rack for “ looks, “ but decided for something else after I received them. I will keep them for use, but not on display.

    Thick, soft, and absorbent. Long enough that I can tie into a knot so my kids can dry their hands and not pull it off the towel rack.

    Looks great, small hand towel size only using for decor.

    I just got them yesterday. The Look is so nice they are the size of a hand towel. I’m using them as decor only , so great. When I wash them I will make sure I put them separately because they look very (fibrous) lol. Not really sure how to explain it. I think I would love to get the large size to see if I would like to use them as real bath towels. If it’s really as they say the more you wash them they get softer, that would be so cool. Because they are really beautiful .

    Nice quality, absorbent, and lovely

    I purchased these for the kitchen. They’re really nice! Soft and absorbent, plus they look really nice hanging out. It’s nice to have a good kitchen towel that I don’t need to hide. If I remember, I’ll come back to update after several washes. Based on the feel and the weave, I expect them to hold up well for years.
