Among the numerous ideas and options on that lengthy wedding gift registry, you’ll be sure to find many, if not all, of the old favourites: crockery, cutlery, bedroom linens, wine glasses, picnic baskets…. of all these potential gifts, we like to think that a set of gorgeously soft luxury towels are the best for a number of excellent reasons.

Expect miraculous results when drying with a microfibre towel. These towels are impressively absorbent and can typically soak up more onto a smaller surface.

Why do we make a point of noting the weight of all our towels? Because it is an important indicator of how your towels will feel.
