I love these towels because they roll up so compact. And they dry very easily. they're big enough to wrap around.
great cotton, soft feel, dries quickly
This towel is probably my favorite among my towels because it’s so soft and is huge! I love the fringe on each side, too! I am considering switching all my towels to this bath towel. I also have several hand and face towels, too, that I’ve bought from GlobeIn. Beautiful!
This is lightweight but extremely absorbent. It dries quickly again after use too. It's become my go-to for trips to the pool.
