Pinzon Blended Egyptian Cotton 4-Piece Bath Towel Sets
Medium Weight 600 GSM
The weight of a towel can be a great indicator of quality and performance. Typically, towel density is measured in grams per square meter (GSM) and ranges from 300 to 900 GSM.
Towels with 600 GSM - like this Egyptian Cotton Towel Set - offer a more luxurious, spa-like experience. This medium-density towel will soak up water fast for noticeable absorbency, and dry quickly for a fresh feeling with each use.
Luxurious Egyptian Cotton
Considered best in class when it comes to high-quality cotton, Egyptian cotton offers a sought-after combination of superior strength and luxurious softness.
It makes a great choice for bath towels because of its high absorbency and breathability, which means water gets wicked away quickly and air can circulate for faster drying.
Egyptian cotton grows in the warm climate of Egypt and features extra-long durable fibers that give towels a beautiful texture and long-lasting strength.
Ringspun for Extra-Smooth Yarn
Ringspun yarn repeatedly twists together strands of long and short fiber to the point where they become an extremely thin, tightly woven rope of fiber. The twisting process causes short fiber hairs to stick out, creating a noticeably soft hand feel and, overall, an ultra-smooth yarn with superior strength. Compared to combed yarn, ringspun yarn typically offers a sleeker finish for a more polished appearance.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I purchased these towels in spite of the mixed reviews and pictures of damaged towels... One reason being the low $21.99 price point for the set of 6 towels, another being the slightly larger bath towels at 30"x 56" (standard is 27x54).
Also, I read reviews stating that the plum is slightly lighter than pictured and this is what I was hoping for. I figured they were worth a risk as I noticed the reviewers who noted the plum color didn't seem to have as many negative reviews.
They arrived quickly and my husband and I both agreed that they appear to be thick and beautiful. That said, I can't yet comment on quality, in terms of longevity, but will be updating this review after a few months of use and numerous washes.
I am very particular about how I launder clothing and the likes, so my findings will only really apply for others who do the same... I don't wash towels with jeans or other articles with zippers or anything that could snag them (or that the towels would wear down).
I use Perwoll detergent for darks which preserves and renews dark colors beautifully (sold here on Amazon, pricey but a little goes a long way and its worth it) and I don't use detergents with regular fillers which buildup on clothes. Reliable PERWOLL-BLACK BLACK FAB. DET. 1.5L
Lastly, I use wool dryer balls and do not use fabric softener (which especially shouldn't be used with towels since it leaves a coating on them, making them less absorbent). Smart Sheep 6-Pack XL Premium 100% Wool Dryer Balls (Reusable, #1 All-Natural Fabric Softener ~ Best Ranked, Great Gift)
I uploaded some pictures so you can see the plum. I laid out a couple of purple cardigans next to them that are more of a true purple or plum, for comparison. These are a slightly smokey plum (more plum than gray, just a touch more muted shade). Very plush, especially for under $22, and much prettier than expected!
Definitely recommend, at the very least, for towels on display getting little use. No snags or poor quality apprearance upon arrival - from Pinzon seller via Amazon, in Plum.
Happy shopping! Smile.
*UPDATE* After first wash, no more dryer lint than with any other new towel set I've purchased. No fuzzies sticking to wet skin or shedding. Color and overall look is as good as new... More to come if anything changes...
After a month of use, a number of washes and dryings, we are super happy with this set! We will be ordering another set while we can (noticed the seperates in plum are no longer available and the HUGE bath mat in plum is now also gone- very plush!). I do recommend it though, (still available in other colors) see my review with photos here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1ESKH88D6JLD7/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B000T2T8RK
Hope this helps!
I'll post the pic of the lint filter from my dryer on the first drying cycle. Then I ran the load through the air only cycle for 20 minutes and again a full lint filter, then ran them again on air only for 20 min.and again a full lint filter. I was afraid at that point that if I continued to dry them I would eventually end up with a nothing load !
Snags: every item had between 12 & 16 snags after laundering. More on the bath towels and hand towels. Several so bad that the backing of the towel is thread bare. Will post pics. There is no excuse for this !
I have not used them so I can't speak to durability, but I do know that my other Egyptian towels from Walmart and Overstock.com did not shed and shag like these towels have done. I think it's just a case of "you get what you pay for" and in this case, it's NOT MUCH....Won't order again and won't use for guests.
First, I wish I'd done a little more research before making the purchase. Had NO idea that Amazon had started its own private label lines years ago, including this Pinzon label (bed & bath, table top kitchen tools/accessories, indoor furnishings)! The others are Strathwood (outdoor furnishings/lighting), Pike Street (a "value" line of bed/bath), and Denali (tools/accessories), and apparently they made the move to try to give its customers great value at competitive prices. I knew the GSM (grams per square meter) number was important when looking at towels (i.e. 300-400 are pretty thin/light weight, 400-600 are considered medium weight/thickness, while 600-900 are the super absorbent, thick and heavy feeling towels that you typically find in upscale hotels or spas.) Since we don't often (NEVER!) frequent those types of places, I was pretty happy when I saw the 600 GSM number on these towels. When I went to write my review, I happened to see Pinzon's LUXURY towels - an 820 GSM for not too much more! Another thing to keep in mind when buying Egyptian towels is to make sure the label doesn't say "made with" Egyptian cotton... they also contain standard cotton and sometimes even polyester! The label should say 100% Egyptian cotton - these do. And I guess the other thing is that while Egyptian IS the "cadillac", Pima cotton is grown in America and creates a towel similar in GSM to Egyptian, and Turkish cotton is also a quality cotton - again, the key with all three (Egyptian, Pima or Turkish) is making sure it says "100%".
I washed them a couple of times before using to get rid of the chemical smell and - while there was quite a bit of lint the first time around, there wasn't as much the second, and they certainly weren't falling apart as I'd read about in some of the other reviews. HOWEVER... after my husband began using them, I started noticing white splotches on the wash cloths as I'd also read about in other reviews (though NOT on the hand or bath towels.) We're now close to 2 months into use, with the wash cloths splotched all over the place but no splotches at all on the hand or bath towels! As I was folding laundry yesterday and shaking my head over the splotches, it finally hit me. My husband uses an astringent to clean his face of work grime when he gets home from work, using the wash cloths, so I believe it's one of the ingredients in the astringent that's reacting with the dye in the hand cloth! Depending upon the type of soap/cleanser or laundry detergent other reviewers are using, I'm betting it could be a similar reaction. But I'll tell ya - NONE of our old wash cloths reacted this way to his astringent, so whatever dyes they're using in the Pinzon plants much be pretty cheap. Amazon's attempt to to give its customers "great value at competitive prices" should not mean taking shortcuts that don't allow a product to perform under typical usage!
