I am typically very picky about towels and sheets... Cheap stuff works in a pinch or as rags but, like teepee, I prefer to use nicer ones on my body. I owned 3-4 different 600-650gsm towels from groupon and most of them are rags now... These specific cotton is from Aegean region of Turkey.
This one seems to be pretty quality stuff. Few years ago I spent a lot of time researching these as the differences apply to both towels and bed sheets, so here are few details I gathered...
Extra-long staple cotton (longer fibers), the denier of the fiber (thickness of the individual cotton play significant difference. I seen 1200tc 100% cotton sheets rip and breakdown in 3-5 years while mine after 12 years look great and feel much softer than it started with (elastic on the bed sheet is going though...)
