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 560 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely & soft Lovely towels, soft & absorbent and in brilliant colours. 26 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Towels I have bought several sets of these towels and have found them to be the perfect balance between luxury and the ability to be easily dried on a towel rail. In daily use they have last me a couple of years. After having had sets of Navy Blue and Lime Green with perfectly matching bath mats, I bought a set of Silver Grey online together with a Silver Grey bath mat. The towels do not match the mat, in fact they rather clash. The towels have a pink/mauve hue compared with the mat, which is pure Silver Grey. They are made in different countries so maybe this is not surprising. If you are a perfectionist like me, you may find any colour difference(s) a bit annoying....... 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best on the market After touch testing many towels from various retailers I decided to buy from John Lewis. These towels feel sumptuously thick and weighty and are very soft. This softness improves further with washing even without using fabric softener. The towels are very very absorbent, they leave your skin feeling noticeably dryer without the need for excessive rubbing. They resist plucking well but plucks can be neatly trimmed with scissors without any effect on appearance. They can be washed at 60º which keeps them looking bright white and without any mishaping or shrinkage. Overall these towels are the best available at that price. They represent great value and are by far the best Egyptian Cotton towels I have found. Once you have tried these you will not go anywhere else. 24 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great range of colours! A lovely range of colours to choose from. Washed beautifully retained their colour and felt luxurious. Good value for money. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really wonderful product These are my third lot of towels . I have been very pleased with this product. They have lasted very well and continue to be soft, fluffy and have retained their colour too. Highly recommended! 24 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely towels These are nice and thick, wash and dry well. Vibrant colours, good value. A couple of threads have come off the side hems, but we'll see if it becomes a problem. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and fluffy Lovely towels. The high quality you would expect from John Lewis. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super soft absorbent towels After a quick 30 deg refresh wash to get the new-ness out of these towels they were dried and put straight into use. We found them so soft and instead of just moving the moisture around and leaving the user covered in fluff and still slightly damp these John Lewis Egyptian cotton towels dried you and left no residu of either water or fluff. We will be buying some more very soon, cant recommend them highly enough and tyerrific value for money. 17 March 2015
