One of the biggest perks of working for Apartment Therapy is all of the amazing brands I’m able to discover. Before joining the team back in 2020, my knowledge of towel brands was limited (I’m 99 percent sure that every towel in my possession up to that point was a K-Mart hand-me-down I snagged from my parents upon moving out). Since then, I’ve put dozens of companies’ products to the test, discovering some of my favorite bathroom pieces along the way, including a set of cozy ribbed towels I swear I’ll never live without again and another set that instantly brought me back to a dreamy five-star hotel stay I’ve been trying to recreate for years. One brand I’ve continually been impressed by is Weezie. While the brand may be known and beloved for its plush bath towels, there’s actually a different product from the brand I swear by: the Signature Hand Towels.

What are the Signature Hand Towels?

Made in Portugal from 100% organic long-staple cotton, these hand towels are the definition of luxurious. Coming in a set of two, these towels are soft to the touch and ultra-absorbent, inarguably the two most essential parts of a great hand towel. On top of this, they’re also incredibly stylish thanks to their piped lining that comes in 14 chic colors and features a hanging loop for easy placement. Best of all, like most Weezie products, you can also add a bit of personalization to your towels with an optional monogram.

Why I Love the Signature Hand Towels

In the past with hand towels, I found I was constantly compromising between two things: style and substance. For years the hand towels I had either looked pretty but didn’t do a great job or were super absorbent but nothing special. So when I saw these, I crossed my fingers that I had finally found what I was looking for — as soon as I unpackaged them I knew that I did. These towels are genuinely soft and the green piping gives them such a gorgeous subtle flair I was actually angry at myself for only just discovering them. But what they really impressed me with was their absorbency. Not only did I notice just how well (and quickly!) they dried my hands, but I had friends and family commenting on them, too — the ultimate compliment.

The Weezie Signature Hand Towels come in at $54 for the pair. While these towels are definitely a splurge, it’s one I’ll happily keep making (and one I can confirm multiple friends did after using them, too). So if you’re looking to treat yourself to a set of hand towels that’ll actually impress you, I suggest spending a bit more on this gorgeous set. After all, can you really put a price on the Goldilocks of hand towels?
