Shopping for towels for your home can seem overwhelming as there are so many different kinds to choose from.

Towel Buying Advice

You cannot judge a towel simply by the softness felt while shopping in the store. Lots of manufacturers add softeners to the finish so that the towel feels quite soft in the store but after a few washings that feel will all but wither away. For enduring softness, check the tag for 100% combed cotton. Cotton fibers can collect twice their weight in water. Combed cotton can prevent this by cutting the shorter thread to prevent piling.  Make sure that whatever towels you purchase, the loops are thick and tight. The more dense the loops are, the more absorbent the towel will be.

High Quality Towels

Monogrammed bath towelsA higher quality towel will be heavier than it appears making it more absorbent. The Pink Giraffe is proud to carry Milagro bath towels by Matouk. They are wonderfully soft, yet equally absorbent and keep their softness and shape with each and every wash cycle. Double turned edges and finished stitching is a sign of a high quality and luxurious bath towel. Monogrammed bath towels make for an excellent décor in the bath as well as being functional. Choose from an array of fonts and thread colors to match your color scheme. Many designers choose to incorporate the monograms in the bathroom into the bedroom as well with custom duvet covers and pillow shams.

A cherished tradition passed from one generation to the next, the addition of these fabulous hand towels can accent a simple bathroom instantly.
