Beautiful towels of the utmost quality! I wish I would have purchased more. Also, the kese (loofah bath mitt) is the best exfoliating mitt EVER. Friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable shopping experience.

It has the best quality towel I have ever seen. Although it's a bit expensive but as long as they are using best quality cotton I believe they deserve the price. They have variety of turkish soaps.More
