Utopia Towels Dobby-Weave Kitchen Towels

Kitchen towels have to be absorbent or they’re of little use. These kitchen towels from Utopia Towels are made with dobby weave (zero-twist construction plus an added combing process that reduces shedding and fraying) for superior absorbency and they’re a terrific value.

Amazon reviewers rate these towels high, with one reviewer saying: “These are great quality towels. They dry well, they wash well, and they stand up to normal use. They did shrink some, but not so much as to be bothersome. They did not warp at all when washed which is better than I can say of my expensive bath towels! I’d gladly buy more, but there are so many in the pack I don’t NEED more (yet). I got rid of all my old kitchen towels and now these are the only ones I use!” No one wants a dirty, smelly kitchen.
