The only problem i had was that the supplier sent them by yodel next day service, useless yodel took two days but at least the supplier refunded my delivery charge. Why do people use yodel? Read their reviews

Yes Dave ....that's my sense of humour. But it can sometimes get you into trouble when people don't realise you are joking!

Frequently!!!

The colours are not too far off. As I said earlier, more of a faded red than girly pink!  up!

You'll be OK. If anyone points and stares it won't be at the towel. (That will give you something to think about!lol4

I was impressed by comments - they sound good.   Have clicked on the link and it takes me to "beach towel" is that the same thing?

Yes. They are very versatile. They are now the only towels we have, at home and in the van.

There are plenty of other firms and outlets. The first lot I got were direct from Turkey. They are very good but a little too multicoloured for home use which is why I went to Rinkit/ Nicola Spring for the rest of them.

The children’s size towels are big hand towel size, the others are large bath size.

Thanks. Will give them a try.  I might wait for the grey or dark nlue though so it fits in with my vans colour scheme!

Ha. Ha Bobskate,  I must admit, the van is better colour co-ordinated than the house.

Sounds fair enough. You have to prioritise what is important.

I'm both slightly colour blind, and totally lacking in colour sense, so I don't have a problem.

Well I do . . . . when Mrs Gromit stops me at the door and refuses to go out with me until I change my clothes, so I look "less like a vagrant!"!!  Whistle1  broomstick

Interesting. Thanks.

We’re in France at the moment and, last week, every market stall and harbourside shop on the Ille de Ré was selling them- called fouta here- for anything from 15 euros up to astronomical prices.

At last: I’m on trend....

Can I just thank you again for putting us on to this product.
I've given a brief outline of our recent European travels elsewhere, but what I didn't mention was what a boon these towels are for our particular van usage, moving on every couple of days. No more trying to dry heavy traditional bath towels after they've been used/washed, with only limited stop time.
We took 6 Turkish towels with us and they were brilliant, with the added bonus of only taking up the space of one normal bath towel.
My better half wasn't convinced at first, but she's a convert now..

Thanks for letting me know this. It’s always a bit awkward if you make a recommendation and no- one likes it !  They’re a real boon for motorhomers and at home alike but, after seeing so many market stalls and shops selling them in France, I have yet to see one on sale in a shop or stall in UK.

We also bought some for the motorhome through me seeing this post. Having just got back from a trip I can say that I thought they were brilliant. Goff still struggles with them 'not being a towel'.  rolleyes

Thanks.

Just been in to have a look at them. They are not the same as the towels I have and are more like a cross between a conventional towel and a hammam towel. They have a looped cotton backing which makes them thicker than the ones we have and rather like some microfibre towels, I am pretty sure, they are a different weave as well.

Made in Turkey however so presumably a different type of hammam towel. They are £5.99 each.
