I bought these for a new guest bathroom.
I did use them myself and they were absorbent, very soft, felt luxurious, and the color is great.
I've had no shedding, pilling, and the dye has not come off. They have been washed twice.
A bit expensive, but I consider going organic part of my charitable contributions.
I got the parrot color and they work well.
I've read a lot of the other reviews here.
I feel bad about some of the towels having the shedding and dye problem.
Seems like if you get a very dark color, especially reds, the towels do not perform well. I remember I bought Martha Stewart towels 20 yrs ago that were black and they did all the same things. I guess the dye is the problem but the quality of the cotton and weave on these towels is awesome. If a reddish color is wanted, probably buying another brand would work better. Great that you can return them if they aren't functional, which helps if you want to try a particular color.

I purchased these for a guest room bath. I tried out one of the bath towels and hand towels which were wonderful . The bath towel hangs a bit longer than a typical bath towel so I am disappointed I am not able to hang it from my upper towel rack since it is staggered above a lower rack which I prefer to hang hand towels.

I think these just may be the only towel I will purchase from now on!! Sooo soft, thick, absorbent, wonderful towels. I bought the parrot color in a hand towel. I thought it was going to be more of a sage color according to what my monitor showed, & so at first I was disappointed with the color as it is pretty vibrant. After some time living with it though, I like it. It's a happy color, like a parrot! :) Will definitely buy again. Would LOVE a bath towel, but those are pretty pricey.

Really really beautiful towels - the color, texture, thickness are fantastic. But they do shed. I have only washed them once and am hoping the shedding stops after a few more washes.

Towels are thick and feel good, BUT almost repellent to water. They leave the skin damp and really do not absorb moisture off the skin even after several washings.
