I originally ordered the Essential Stripe towels to use as bath towels in our brand new bathroom. I live in very humid Hawaii and normal towels never dry and just get musty. They are really beautiful and soft towels but I was disappointed by their absorbency level. They felt more like a soft throw or blanket than a towel to me. Since they had a warranty I contacted the company and they responded right away, and offer to replace the towels for another style. I read on another review that the Perfect Classic were much more absorbent so I asked for those. They are definitely more absorbent. They are more "scratchy and rough" sort of speak compared with how soft the Essential Stripe is. But it is this scratchines that make them dry better. They are very light and dry super fast. I can shower at night and they'll be dry by the morning. I am happy using these towels as bath towels. Only thing is that the colors don't go with my bathroom as well as the other ones did. But I will probably wait until more colors become available and get some that match better, and keep these as guest towels. I'm super happy with the costumer support of this company and will def. recommend it to friends.
I love this towel. Bought it already and lost it and had to get another one right away. It's well made and beautiful. Very soft.
I bought light blue classic towel;its really pale and has a yellowish cast to it. It is much thinner than I expected - I have cotton dish towels that are the same thickness. Sadly, not as absorbent or quick drying as advertised - I read the reviews that said they were "super absorbent" - mine isn't. And yes, I followed the instructions about the first washing.
I am Zoe’s mom and I bought this for her for Christmas and for her upcoming semester in Australia. It is beautiful and she will use it quite a bit, I’m sure!
