John Lewis Egyptian Cotton Towels, White

Product information

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 613 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good towels We hate thin or 'slippery when wet' smooth towels. These seem very good although they do shed rather a lot of cotton fibres in use and have several threads hanging despite really light use and being washed and dried in high quality near new machines using low temperatures and gently detergents 24 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing A good colour range but already looks rather 'tired' after just one wash. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Fabulous quality great price, thick soft and fluffy towels ... just perfect 23 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fluff, fluff and more disappointing fluff! For our wedding gift list we asked for some new towels, specifically these Egyptian JL towels as we thought they would be of high quality and we wanted to treat ourselves. However, 10 months after our wedding and receiving our gifts we are still having to clean our bathroom of a thick swathe of blue fluff from the towels. It seems never-ending and we are extremely disappointed with the product. Looking at the reviews, we don't understand why this is happening, maybe a faulty batch?? 18 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft!! Soft and thick and wash really well. Really nice colour. 18 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality towels these are lovely and wash up beautifully, I will be purchasing more very soon 17 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great towels, poor colour match with bath mat! These towels are great quality and feel luxuriously thick. However I purchased them to go with a bath mat of the same colour (silver grey) and although the colour match was initially reasonable, the towels and bath mat nowafter only 2 washes) look quite different in colour. Disappointed. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Fabulous towels, soft and very absorbent as for the colour, that is divine. 09 June 2015
