The 100% Turkish cotton hand towels I ordered are beautiful! The product actually looks better in person than on the website, however the towels absorb absolutely zero water! I washed them before using, but they just leave all the water on your hands. The description does say they get more absorbent with each wash so I guess I will try washing them a few times before trying them again.
