The Best Towel Materials According to Experts

Selecting the best towel material is essential if you want to feel pampered after your bath or shower. There's nothing quite like wrapping yourself up in the warm embrace of a comfortable towel - especially if introducing spa-like luxury to your home is on your list of must-dos.

But what is the best material to choose for your towels? In this short guide, the experts at Christy tell you everything you need to know about towel materials to help you pick out the perfect towels for your bathroom.

With over 170 years of experience in crafting the most luxurious towels, we know a thing or two about quality. Wave goodbye to those old scratchy towels and say hello to thick and fluffy towels that tick all the right boxes.

Which towel material is best?

There's actually no definitive answer when it comes to which towel material is best. This is because there are several different factors that make a towel high quality. These include:

  • Fabric softness
  • Absorbency
  • Durability

For some people, the best towel might be the one that feels softest against the skin. For others, it might be absorbency or durability that is the factor they value the most when shopping for towels.

In other words, the best towel material for one person might not be the best for another, so it ultimately comes down to your personal preferences.

No matter which features are most important to you when shopping for towels, the following materials are generally considered to be some of the best thanks to their all-round premium quality.

Egyptian cotton

If you're looking for luxuriously thick and fluffy towels, Egyptian cotton might be the perfect choice for you. Towels made from this material are pillowy soft - not to mention super absorbent - so you'll be warm, cosy, and dry in no time with one of these waiting on the towel rail.

Christy's Renaissance towels are made from premium Egyptian cotton and are the epitome of classic luxury. It's no wonder that they've been a beloved staple of our collection for several decades now.

These towels will retain their softness for years to come when washed properly and will not shed despite their supremely fluffy texture.

Available in an extensive range of sophisticated shades and sizes, our Egyptian cotton towels are designed to perfectly blend in with any bathroom aesthetic.

Supima cotton

Offering superior softness, absorbency, and durability, Supima cotton is the perfect material for crafting the highest quality towels. Stepping out of a hot shower and into the velvety softness of a Supima cotton towel is akin to being wrapped up in a warm hug.

Our Supreme Hygro® towels are our most innovative and luxurious towels yet, made from the softest Supima cotton in the pile. The yarns are spun with our patented Hygro-cotton technology, which makes our Supima cotton towels even fluffier for record-breaking drying time.

These Supima cotton towels are available in a wide variety of colour palettes, ranging from opulent jewel tones to elegant neutral shades.

Turkish cotton

Renowned for their incredible absorbency and thick, velvety texture, you can't go wrong with Turkish cotton towels. Turkish cotton fibres are longer than standard combed cotton fibres, which makes these towels noticeably softer and smoother.

Christy's Luxe towels are made from the highest quality Turkish cotton, making them the most plush and lavish towels on the market. These super absorbent towels feel beautifully smooth against the skin and are similar to the towels you will find in luxury hotels and spas.

With several beautiful neutral shades to choose from, these luxury towels will look incredible hanging up in any bathroom.
