John Lewis has a reputation for quality and all its towel ranges are tested for strength, shrinkage, absorbency and colour-fastness. They’re washed repeatedly to ensure they will stand up to years of use and still look and feel good. Choose from Classic, Egyptian, Hotel and Pima as well as soft cotton bathrobes in a wide range of colours. Also well worth checking out is its range of mats and boards.
Marks & Spencer has a stylish and practical towel range. Choose from luxury or everyday collections, or buy towel bales. Check out its Essential Pure Cotton collection, its Fairtrade towels or its high-end Autograph Pure Luxury range. This retailer also has a selection of bath mats.
