Not what I expected

Towel is super thin and doesn’t soak up water. The size was great and it’s soft but that’s all that I liked about them.

Great Color, Thin Design

The color on these towels is a fantastic muted olive but the overall absorbency and material is very thin. I got a competing towel that feels much more absorbent overall.


The Citizenry

Hi Travis, We're happy to know that you were loving the look of your Mara Towels. These beauties are not only chic but also a functional addition to your space but we want you to feel confident in both roles! You should see these become more absorbent with use and washing- so give that a try! Let us know how we can help by reaching out to us at We hope to help find everything you're looking for! Sincerely, The Citizenry

Beautiful soft towels

These towels are beautiful, but they are a bit thin and snag easily.

I don’t typically leave reviews but I would have wanted to know this information before I purchased these towels. I ordered them towels based on the reviews. However I was quite disappointed with the absorption. People say they are absorbent but I find that my body is still damp. This is ok if you live in Hawaii but not for the PWN. I would return them if I could. They are way too expensive for them to leave your body damp. The other thing is they are beautiful out of the box but once washed, they lose their shine and look worn. The only consistency with the other reviews is their softness. They are very soft.


The Citizenry

Hi Misha, We really appreciate all the feedback and thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry to hear that these towels were not as absorbent as you had hoped. We would like to take the opportunity to chat through other styles in our collection that may be a better experience for you!

Poor quality

Threadbare, very cheap
