    Towels / summer blanket

    I ordered towels but ended up using them primarily as summer-weight blankets. perfect for cool evenings or early mornings.

    Light & easy to dry

    We travel a lot and having a towel that does not take up your suit case is very important to my family and poko towels meet that requirement.It gets soft the more you wash and dries fast perfect for anything,especially if you are on the go.Used it as table clothe,shawl for infront of the fire,blanket,scarf and at the beach.It's a multipurpose item and love it.I just ordered some more!

    Thank you so much, Genevieve!! Such an awesome review ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Pattern is one sided

    They:re lovely and absorbent, quick drying like other pokoloko towels, but I was surprised the pattern is only on one side. Still, like em tho.

    So soft

    This was my second Poko purchase and with the success of the first purchase, I thought I would like to change from conventional towels to these for our bathroom. I will say, they take getting used to, as they are thinner than a std towel, but I think they absorb just as much, and feel so soft against the skin, I’m in love.
    I’ve washed once (and air dried) and was pleased that the softness doesn’t seem to have changed. They look so pretty and feel so silky, that I’m worried about ruining them, but so far (2 weeks of regular use), no Issues. It is noticeably bigger than a regular towel too.

    Thank you so much! ❤️ We are happy to hear you love the Bamboo Towels!
