How to Choose High Quality Bath Towels
The last thing you want when you step out of a luxurious bath or relaxing shower is to feel the scratchy material of a cheap towel even if it matches your bath decor.
Here are a few tips to ensure that you purchase the right kind of towels for your home.
One of the most important indicators of quality in bath towels is the type of material used. Most towels are made of cotton, but there are wide variations in quality. Egyptian cotton and Supima cotton are usually the best choices for a towel that provides you the luxury you want. These materials are also the most durable, which means they can last a long time or at least until you are ready to change your bath décor and update the towels.
The difference in cottons is in the length of the fiber. Egyptian has the longest fiber, which contributes to the soft, plush feel that you enjoy wrapping around you. Supima cotton is shorter but still provides softness combined with durability. Standard cotton is marketed as 100% cotton and has the least amount of softness. However, it can be durable and long lasting.
You will also want to look at the edges of a towel to determine its quality. The double turned edge is not just an attractive feature, but one that provides extra durability. These edges will be less likely to fray than one with a woven edge.
Choosing bath towels is about more than matching your bath décor or selecting a color you like. It is about knowing what makes one towel a better option than another one. To find high quality towels, you must know about your options in material, density, and absorbency as well as the price commented Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
