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.

Please note:In order to create a unified colour palette across our home ranges we have changed the names of some of our Egyptian towels. If you have already bought towels in existing colours they can be matched as follows: Oyster = Soft Cream; Wisteria = Mid Cassis; Orchid = Pale Cassis; Ocean = Pacific; Aqua = Dark Duck Egg; Slate = Dove.

Just the best towels I have used JL towels for many years and am not disappointed with these. Good quality and a great size for the bath sheet. 16 September 2014
More quality essentials My towels were becoming tired and worn so I went for something bright, soft and hardwearing. This was absolutely ideal - and very good value 16 September 2014
Amazingly soft and absorbent After many attempts at finding "the perfect" towel I think the search is finally over. The bath sheets and hand towels were bought for my son and he is delighted with the product. Being both soft and absorbent and generous is size make this a truly good purchase. Well done John Lewis! 16 September 2014
Very good quality These towels wash up very thick & fluffy. Very good selection of colours available. Excellent value. 11 September 2014
Lovely Towels Bought 2 sets of bath sheets and hand towels in the Egyptian cotton range and am really pleased with them. They are very good quality and would buy them again. They are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. 11 September 2014
Pale Duck Egg is no longer pale! I recently bought 4 guest towels in pale duck egg. I was so pleased with the colour that last week I ordered 4 hand towels in the same colour. Assuming them to be the same colour (pale duck egg is not one of the colours amended on the website), but not comparing them with the said guest towels, I washed them ready for use. It was only when I put them in the bathroom that I realised they are considerably darker that the original towels, and, on comparing them with the guest towels, are a much darker ''pale" duck egg colour. Looking at the label, I note that one is made in India, the other in China, which explains the difference. My mistake for assuming they were the same shade, but pale duck egg should be added to the list of amended colours to save others making the same mistake. p.s. The towel quality is good. 08 September 2014
Lovely but fluffy! Bought bath sheets and hand towels in black recently. The towels are lovely and thick and a nice size, however, please do be prepared for a lot of "fluff" dust cominmg off them for weeks despite lots of washes! Perhaps other colours are not as bad, but black is hard to ignore... 07 September 2014
Really useful product The perfect size for a kitchen towel, comes in a range of colours to. 03 September 2014
