If your bathroom has seen better days, one way to give it an instant upgrade is by trading out your old, worn-down towels with a fresh set of new linens. Living in a rental, there’s not a lot I can change about my apartment, but the bathroom closet is a space I’m proud of. Even more so after getting rid of the hand-me-down towels from my family and buying my own that fit my personal taste. In fact, one of the first major bathroom purchases I made for my home was a set of waffle bath towels, switching up from my usual plush styles. Waffle weave towels have grown significantly in popularity due to their optimal absorbency, stretch, moisture-wicking capabilities, and style. One that rose to the Top 10 of AT’s bath towel Best List was Allswell’s Stonewashed Waffle Towel, which adds a touch of decorative style to its impeccable function.

Available in silver grey, blush, and white, the Stonewashed Waffle Towels are made from 100-percent cotton that gets softer with every wash. It would have been easy to simply make a waffle weave towel from top to bottom, but Allwell improves on the design with a woven jacquard border and fringed edges that upgrade the style. “I was able to try out the Stonewashed Waffle Towels from Allswell, which I was hesitant to do since I’ve always been a plush towel loyalist,” says contributor Kendall. “Not only do they look beautiful draped over the bathtub and towel rack, but their design is also quite practical. The grooves of the towel’s waffle weave allow it to absorb water like a sponge, so there’s no need to rub yourself with it to dry off — a light pat will do. And because of Allswell’s stone-washing process, the towel is also unbelievably soft and will only get more so over time with use and washes.”

Though the colors of the Stonewashed Waffle Towels are sold separately, many Allswell shoppers purchase them together to complete their collections and save a few dollars in the process. Bundles are also available for 10 percent off that includes two wash cloths, two hand towels, and two bath towels. Though it’s not part of the set, you can also get this waffle towel in the form of a bath sheet for additional coziness and coverage. If you’re looking to update your bath towels, these are soft, minimal (great for small spaces), and low maintenance with luxe style. From wash cloth to bath sheet, prices range from $2-$26, so you can build up your linens without breaking the bank.
