Product Description

Drying off has never been as luxurious as with these super-soft hand towels. Expertly made in Turkey with 600 grams per square meter of Hydrocotton, the hand towels get their supple feel from a unique spinning process. The result is a low-twist, chunkier yarn that is thick yet lightweight and exceptionally soft. The process also allows the threads to open up for a high degree of absorbency. An attractive banded border at one end adds a subtle contrasting texture and a finished look. Machine wash and dry without fabric softener, which can block absorption. The hand towel measures approximately 20 by 30 inches and weighs 8 ounces. For easy accessorizing, the hand towel comes in a choice of colors and coordinates with a full line of Hydrocotton washcloths, bath sheets, bath towels, and even bathrobes, in the same palette.

Fabric Definition

Hydrocotton: Hydrocotton is designed to be extra soft, plush, and absorptive, qualities most desired in bath linens. Hydrocotton is the patented name of a cotton fabric produced by the Eke Textile Industry and Trading Company in the Denizli region of Turkey. The fabric is made by spinning cotton yarns at a uniquely low rate specific only to Hydrocotton. If spun more, the yarns would produce a fabric nearer to traditional cotton in feel and would be less absorbent. If spun less, the fabric would become weaker and would not stand up as well to everyday use. In Hydrocotton, open loops exist throughout the yarn, which increase its absorbency level. Once woven, Hydrocotton goes through a unique wash cycle that helps the loops expand, resulting in an even higher level of plushness and absorption.

History of the Textile Mill

Founded in Denizli, Turkey, in 1989 by Mr. Eke himself, the Eke Textile Industry and Trading Company began its operations with just a 1,500 square meter area and eight weaving looms. By 1991, the company established a sewing line to broaden its product range and increase market share. Soon, two computer-aided ETON system lines and 46 stations were added. The Swedish ETON system guarantees a minimum error rate of 2%-3%. It is an assembly-line-like system that allows the producer to know exactly who in which station is responsible for each part of the production process. This greatly minimizes production flaws, which earns EKE its stellar reputation for superior products. To meet continually growing demand, the operation was moved to a new 10,000 square meter plant in 1996. Mr. Eke is still in charge of daily operations and EKE has come to boast a 500+ strong workforce.

History of the Region

Denizli is the most famous city in Turkey for towels and bathrobes. The factories have employed a long line of towel weavers from the mountain top village of Babadag, near Denizli. Weaving is a tradition that has been perfected over the past 300 years. The technique originated from the weaving of Turkish carpets, and eventually moved to towels with the use of thinner cotton yarns. Denizli is not only known for its towels, but also for its hot springs, known as "Pamukkale," or, in English, "Cotton Castle." The natural thermal water, containing limestone, has flowed over the hilltops for hundreds of years, creating a smooth rock formation that gives the hills their clean, white appearance. Denizli is also one of the largest marble producing areas in the world. Their second biggest export after textiles is marble stone.

This definitely exceeded my expectations.

There was alot of lint in the washer and I did empty the lint trap halfway thru drying, but it was no big deal.

Color Name: WhiteSize Name: Bath Sheet
I really love the Pinzon flannel sheets I got last year, so I decided to give the towels a try too. I love the feel of the hydro-cotton and have been very happy with how soft the towel is after multiple washes. I'm at least as happy with the towels as the sheets - and I still can't believe you can get luxury linens at these prices! It's Amazon's best kept secret!

Nice looking towel. Thick and drys well. Not overly soft and it will NOT stop shedding. Parts of the towel, on my face and skin...makes a mess in the bathroom. This towel would be great except for I can't even put my contacts in after drying off, because I have parts of the towel all over my fingers and I have to use a cheap wash cloth to wash my hands clean. Not worth more than $20.00 and if you do buy...pain in the butt to keep your bathroom clean.

I got one of every size so I will break this review into four parts. I ordered the White color for each.

Wash Cloth: The wash cloth is slightly bigger than the ones I already have. The stitching is good quality and I expect that they will last a long time. Each washcloth has a tag which is substantial enough to be a bother when using the washcloth. I recommend cutting off the tags. Overall I am highly satisfied with my purchase.

Hand Towel: Same quality design and same expectations of durability. This is the perfect size for well, a lot of things. It is slightly too small to use to dry hair after showering unfortunately. Still I am glad I bought it.

Bath Sheet: Despite its price I believe it is worth every penny. This sheet is huge, easily big enough to cover just about anyone with ease. Again, same quality fabric as the other items. I would recommend the bath sheets to anyone.

Bath Towel: Although the item itself is of great make, I find myself wondering what I will do with the bath towel. It is too big to use as a replacement to hand towels and the bath sheet is more than sufficient for drying. Nevertheless if you do not go with a bath sheet I recommend getting a bath towel.

Overall I am satisfied with my purchases and I am sure you will be too if you purchase any of these.

Color Name: FlaxSize Name: Bath Towel Verified Purchase
I purchased the flax and rose color towels and the flax clor towels ran after two washings in cold water and regular tide. The flax formed almost orange looking spots and I returned them to Amazon. The rose colored ones look to be color safe so I am keeping them.

The softest towels I ever used, just wish the color on the flax was more stable. Be very careful if you plan to purchase the flax color.

I had looked at these bath towels a few times, but thought they were too expensive so I resisted buying them at first. I finally ordered them and have not regreted the purchase. They are so thick and wonderfully soft and its so nice to wrap yourself in them after a shower! Highly recommended!

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Cheez on January 7, 2009
We have washed these towels three times, in total, and the first wash was when we first received the towels and hadn't even used them yet. The towels are still shedding all over our bodies and onto the floor of our bathroom. They also are beginning to fray along the edges, and we're not particularly hard on the towels (no kids, and we don't use these on our pets).

While the towels feel thick and soft, they don't seem to be very absorbent. I won't be buying these again.

Color Name: FlaxSize Name: Bath Towel Verified Purchase
I ordered 4 of these and they have become the favorite towels of the whole family. Everyone reaches for these in the morning for their shower while my closet full of old worn out towels just sits there. Now that they know what they have been missing everyone insists I buy more so I hope Amazon gets them back in stock soon!
