On the Hunt for Bath Towels

Posted: March 11th, 2010 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

I think Bath Towels are like hairdressers, parking spaces, men (others?)….
You can find a lot of them but the GOOD ones are rare.

So this daily find article from Real Simple sparked my wheels turning. I usually just go feel towels at my local store and make the decision based on price versus comfort.

{That’s not really true - I get sucked into the look too. Last time I just couldn’t walk away from a gorgeous design - so sad because they’re so stinking uncomfortable! Lesson learned.}

So the reason (of many) that I love Real Simple is that this email article gave me 9 bath towel ideas for every budget. I’m looking for plain white, well I was until I saw some of these towels:

Look how fun colored these ones are from Kara Weaves - so cute! Hand towels too! I love the thought for spring and for the using them with kids - but comfort? I might have to find out for myself:


Oh and then these from West Elm:


But I really hate not being able to feel them - you know it’s like the paint recommendation thing I have - I have to see it in person!

Now I really don’t believe you can go wrong with the good ‘ol Americana Ralph Lauren:

So before I impulsively go out and buy –do you have a favorite brand of towel that you love? I would love any ideas!

    I swear by Land’s End Bamboo towels. They are a little pricier, but do go on sale and there is nothing thicker, softer, or more absorbent! I have mine in all white and love them :).

    yep. I have some lands end ones that I love. They’ve never frayed or torn! Nice feel to them as well. I got white of course, because I love fluffy white towels…but that ended bad…contractor hubby…ewww!! ALL I know is don’t wash with fabric softener…they quit absorbing. Learned that the hard way!
