We have used our expertise in perfecting the optimum weight for these Egyptian cotton towels so you can really feel the difference. Heavier than most towels on the market, our towels are made with long fibres which have the softness, absorbency and strength for which true certified Egyptian cotton is renowned. They are colour safe to 60°C so they'll look and feel great for longer.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 586 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and fluffy Excellent towels wash up really well and so soft and good price vet pleased 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality Itowels are of excellent quality. Thick and soft and wash very well with minimal bleeding of colour. So many colours to choose from and Grandchildren picked their favourite. 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic quality for the price I'm really impressed with these towels, they wash well, remain soft and keep their colour. I bought the crimson and dark green, red colours are the worst for fading, but so far the crimson ones have kept their colour well. My pet hate when it comes to towels is threads/loops pulling, which I find happens a lot with the cheaper towels you can buy in the supermarkets. I guess these are slightly more expensive but the extra cost is well worth it as after 6 months of use they are snag free! 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good absorbent towels I've had John Lewis towels in the past, so naturally they were the first place I turned to when I needed new towels for mt kitchen. They were delivered promptly to my local Waitrose, and I was delighted with the colour and quality when I collected them. 28 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely towels Just the colour red we were looking for, and beautifully soft. 26 April 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed. We bought our teal coloured towels in January 2015 and have just given up using them. The reason? After four months of almost daily use, regular washes, hanging out to dry on windy day, they are still shedding fluff. It gets everywhere, tinting all the surfaces in our bathroom with a bluish tinge. True, they are still soft and have retained their colour. But there's only so much fluff we can take. 24 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything a towel should be! All the JL Egyptian cotton towels I've bought have been great quality, thick and fluffy. And the New York yellow towels certainly gave my all- white bathroom a great springtime face lift. A joy. 24 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by really good towels I have had these towels in the past and they have always proved to be winners still going strong when other towels of equal cost have become thin and hard. 22 April 2015
