Supima 6-piece Towel Set
Price + Quality = Best Value
I have been a die-hard Restoration Hardware Turkish cotton towel fan for years. But we've updated the bathroom and they don't carry a towel in true navy blue. So I read up on the different kinds of cotton (Egyptian, Turkish, Supima) and even bamboo. I learned all about GSM (grams per square meter). And I read towel reviews at Lands End, Cuddledown, Garnet Hill, The Company store, and a variety of other retailers. The message was pretty clear: Supima cotton is the softest, 600 GSM or higher is considered a "luxury weight" towel, and Lands End towels get the best reviews. So how could I not give them a try?
I'm extremely pleased with the Value on these towels, meaning that considering both price and quality combined, there isn't a better deal out there (cheaper yes, fancier yes, but not affordable quality), and that's why these get 5 stars. If I could give separate ratings then price would be a 5, quality would be a 4.
These towels are large, very soft, plush, absorbent, and color-fast. And they just look good on the towel rod! My personal preference is for shorter loops and a denser weave -- as I stated, I'm accustomed to Restoration Hardware's 800 GSM towels. But that one factor aside, I've completely converted over to Lands End towels and will buy a set every time they're on sale (I like to have four sets in rotation at a time for longevity.)
I definitely recommend these and think anyone would be pleased with this purchase. Bonus -- these towels come with the Lands End guarantee. No one else backs their products like that. With zero risk, how can you not want to try these?

Soft, Plush Towels
I bought these in Jalapeno to replace some VERY cheap, sage colored towels for our bathroom. We had some LE towels years ago, so I forgot how plush these are! Made our previous ones from Bed, Bath and Beyond seem like paper towels. These are soft, thick, and absorbent. My one worry was the color - we needed a dark-ish green to match the shower curtain - but they were perfect. It's not as bright a green as the website makes it look. I highly recommend these towels.

Love these towels!
Bought these towels for newly remodeled master bath. They are so soft and plush. Love the autumn leaf color. Liked them so much I bought another set. Believe the directions and do not use fabric softener - the towels stay soft without it.

These Towels Are Great!
This is my second purchase of Lands' End Supima towels. The towels couldn't be nicer. They are fluffy and absorbent. I purchase 8 of everything and colors are consistent from towel to towel. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend these towels to my friends.

Very nice... good price...
I just received these, I recommend washing before using and be ready to clean your lint filter in your dryer three or four times during drying process. I had mine initialed (one initial) the wash cloths are not personalized ...they don't do that anymore...very disappointed. I have no idea how long these towels will last, but they dry the body well.

I love these towels! They are incredibly absorbent and so soft to the touch. Have paid much more for less quality. Bought three more as Xmas gifts for this upcoming Xmas. Lucky recipients. There are lots of colours available too.

I am truly disappointed with these towels. No matter how much I have washed and dried the lint is everywhere!!!!!!! UGHHHHHHH
The colors were great and the size was perfect but I would not purchase again.

Beautiful color, and absorbent, soft towel
Cajun blue is lovely, and the towels are wonderful - perfect. I have these in a deep gray which I love in the bath sheet. Wash well and are so absorbent and comfortable. Do wish you still had the deeper gray.
Hoping you will come up with a rich plum color.

Just got them
So far very happy with the softness and generous size. Slightly disappointed with one of the colors, however. Washed Sky, which looks decidedly powder blue in the photo online (which is what I wanted), is clearly more of a light sage green in person. Looked at it in all different lighting, and the family consensus is definitely green. We are choosing to make the best of it, but it's unfortunate.

Towels are large and dense
The quality is exactly as I expected, as I've purchased this line of towels before. A very good value, and good colors.
