Have you heard of Olive and Linen? I’ve been a huge fan of their Turkish towels and use them all around our home! Not only are their towels gorgeous, like really, if I could imagine a hand towel just for me and our home–these would be them, but they are also made better. Olive and Linen uses two-ply yarn as opposed to single ply like most of the Turkish Towels on the market. The single ply yarn is not durable enough and breaks during the weaving process. It requires the application of a chemical coating to make it strong enough to be woven. This chemical coating results in a stiffer and less absorbent towel. All of their towels are hand-loomed from two-ply premium Turkish cotton that is already strong enough to be woven without the use of any chemicals. The end result is a very soft and absorbent towel that is naturally durable and free of chemicals. It’s safe to say I have built up quite the collection:
And I use them all over our house–from the bathrooms to the kitchen. They are lint free, so they’re perfect for drying dishes and in the bathroom, they dry really quickly so there is no worry about a mildew smell forming.

 And, of course, one of their best qualities are they are very light and compact. There are 18 folded into our small kitchen drawer with room to spare. 18!

They have lots of different colors and patterns, but I stuck to the palette of our home so that we could mix and match and the combination always works no matter what room or pairing they’re in. Tip: They double (triple?) as great dinner napkins too!

Great news! Olive and Linen is offering Chris Loves Julia 30% off their entire purchase with code CLJ30 (plus, fast and free shipping!). Their prices are already really affordable (hence the collection) so I was so floored when they offered this! Scoop up some of their excellent hand towels right here before they sell out!

What do you think?

    I bought some hand towels for teacher gifts (and a couple extra for me) and they are huge for kitchen towels. Did I buy the wrong ones or are yours folded strategically on your oven handle?

  2. Sarah says:

    I bought these towels for the kitchen after your post and have been loving them! Thank You! Just ordered more :) So, to follow this up – what do you guys use for dish cloths? Have any recommendations?

    • Peshce says:

      That Sounds great that you loved those Turkish towels. But do you can also use them as a Scarf ? Oh yes! you heard it right. These towels are not only to rub yourself after a bath? Turkish cotton towels can also be used as scarfs – by women or men! Get one for yourself by shopping on PESHCE. And yes don’t forget to Cozy up in our Layen Turkish bathrobe.

  3. Cindy Chang says:

    Ooh I was just shopping for a Turkish towel/throw earlier today and was happy to find your post! I love how you also use these as dinner napkins! Any tips on how to keep them stain-free??

    • Chris says:

      I think if you figure that out you could make a lot of money, haha. Life still happens, so stains are likely, but frequent, gentle washing and discretion on which messes you use them to clean can help.

  4. Stephanie Rawlins says:

    Have been wanting to get these for so long and also trying to find birthday presents for some special ladies in my life. Your post and discount came at a fantastic time! Thank you!

  5. Katie says:

    Wow, this is a great sponsored post! Just ordered $90 worth of towels, ha. Thanks for the code!

  6. Bryce says:

    I’d love to find the towel that’s shown hanging on your stove (gray/black vertical stripes, 3 white horizontal stripes). Thanks!

  7. Lauren K says:

    Thank you, ordered!

  8. Thank you for this post. I’m going to order some right away. I’ve been looking fo something for the powder room and kitchen

  9. Jamey says:

    I love Turkish towels. Wondering if anyone has any tips for keeping the tassels from becoming unraveled and ugly in the wash.

  10. Michelle I says:

    I have been wanting to try Turkish towels FOREVER! Just order two bath towels and two hand towels, can’t wait to use them :) Thanks!

  11. Kristin says:

    I have been putting off buying kitchen towels! Just ordered some!

  12. Katharine says:

    These are beautiful, thank you for the recommendation & code! Usually it takes me weeks to make a purchasing decision, but the timing of this post was perfect as we are finishing our kitchen reno and the prices were so good I just went for it. They will be the perfect finishing touch!

  13. Melissa M. says:

    Thank you!! Order just submitted. I have been eyeing Turkish towels forever and this just pushed me over the edge…in a good way. Thanks for finding me the perfect thing to spend my birthday money on. :)
