You can’t underestimate the importance of a good bath towel. While they come in all shapes and sizes, the quality is what matters most. That’s why I — along with my fellow Apartment Therapy editors — do the dirty work of testing out dozens of bath towels to find the best of the best across the board. Personally, I enjoy medium-plush towels that are absorbent, odor-resistant, and a little stylish. It doesn’t hurt if they dry quickly, too. Because I tend to buy my towels in bulk rather than individually, finding an affordable towel set with all the necessities is always a bonus.

Fortunately, during my rigorous towel testing, I came across the Turkish Ribbed Quick Dry Bath Towel Bundle from editor- and reader-favorite brand, Quince. At well under $100, it checked all of my boxes (and more).

What Are the Turkish Ribbed Quick Dry Bath Towels?

Quince offers five different types of bath towels, not including their baby and kids’ towel collection. Of them all, the Ribbed Quick Dry Bath Towels stand out the most. Sporting a fashionable ribbed design, these long-staple Turkish cotton towels have a plush feel and unique style that instantly adds a luxe touch to your bathroom. Highly absorbent and quick-drying, the complete set comes with two washcloths, two hand towels, and two bath towels, and is available in six colors ranging from bright white to a cool blue-gray mineral. If you prefer larger bath towels, Quince also offers a bath sheet bundle for just $10 more.

Why I Love the Turkish Ribbed Quick Dry Bath Towels

Let me start by saying the Quince Turkish Ribbed Quick Dry Bath Towels look like no other towels in my linen closet — and that’s a good thing. I never mix them up with any other towels, which allows me to open the cabinet and immediately spot them. And trust me, I’m always happy to find a clean Quince towel on my shelf for the taking. I opted to get my towels in Mist, a refreshing light teal that looks just as soft and cozy as the material itself. After lots of use and multiple washes, the towels look and feel just as nice as they did when they first arrived, including the washcloths and bath towels, which get the most action. There are no stains, no fading, no snags, and best of all, little to no shedding.

Of course, what I wanted to know most of all was whether or not these towels actually dried quickly. Now that I’ve spent months using them, I can say that the claims check out. After a shower, I can return hours later to find a nice dry bath towel hanging from the hook, ready to be used again. Even though this towel is on the plusher side, I haven’t had to worry about finding leftover damp spots or a mildew odor wafting from the bathroom. That alone sets them apart from other towels I’ve tried that claim to be fast-drying but aren’t. Overall, Quince continues to impress me with its style, affordability, and effectiveness, and these towels are just further proof of that.
