Luxury Towel Buying Guide

Luxury Towel Buying Guide

Hello and welcome back to our Customer Service FAQ blog! This week, we will be going over some frequently asked questions concerning all of the wonderfully soft and absorbent towels that we offer on eLuxury. 

With all of the choices that we offer, we wanted to provide a Luxury Towel Buying Guide to help you learn everything you need to know about the best luxury towels anywhere! 

First up, let's talk about GSM. 

What is GSM? 

GSM is short for grams per square meter. GSM is what determines not only the quality but the overall weight and density of the towel.  For example: A 550GSM towel will fall under the medium range for weight and thickness. 400-550GSM is the average towel that you will see at any standard hotel.  They are absorbent and take less time to dry, but they also feel nice and thick! Some of the towels that we offer at eLuxury go all the way up to 900 GSM, which makes for the most absorbent bath towels on the planet! 

With GSM explained, let’s start looking at what we offer here at eLuxury.

eLuxury's Luxury Hotel Towel Collection

For our Luxury Towel Buying Guide, we thought that we would start with the softest. First up, let's look at our Bamboo Towel Set. Our Bamboo towel set is available in a 6 piece set, which includes two 400GSM washcloths, two 450GSM hand towels, and two 500GSM bath towels. 

These towels are in a different league than the rest of our towels due to them being 40% Rayon from Bamboo and 60% Cotton. Rayon from Bamboo is a softer fiber than cotton and with the GSM count, it makes for a medium weight towel with good absorbency and good dry time.  These are some of the softest towels you will find anywhere. 

Let's move on to our  600GSM Towel Sets.

These are available in a 3 piece set, which is one washcloth, one hand towel, and one bath towel. Our 6 piece set includes two washcloths, two hand towels, and two bath towels. 

These towels are 100% Long Staple Cotton and have been some of our biggest selling and most gift-able items for years. The 600-900 GSM is on the higher end scale of GSM.  This means that the towel is thicker and more dense than a 500GSM towel.  These towels are super absorbent and very soft to the touch.  They do take longer to dry than 400-500GSM, but the softness and quality cannot compare.

These GSM’s are the norm for a  5 star hotel towel. 

Now, we move on to our most luxurious and most absorbent towels: Our 900GSM Towel Sets.

Of all of the towels mentioned in our Luxury Towel Buying Guide, the 900 GSM are our best selling and most popular. All of these sets are 100% Long Staple Cotton and are the largest and thickest towels on the market. They come in 8 piece 6 piece, 3 piece, and 2 piece sets.  It does take a bit longer to dry these towels, but with thickness and absorbency on this level, that is to be expected. When a birthday or a major holiday rolls around in which you need to impress someone with a luxurious gift, look no further than these. And when looking for the biggest and thickest bath towels online, these 900 GSM are the best of the best.
