everybody loves a fluffy white towel, there is something innocent and pure about a clean white towel – maybe its the image of your little one wrapped sweetly …. personally i prefer the hamman style towel or the thin waffle types that you can usually get from the white company , conran or designers guild. you can buy a great selection of beautifully dyed shades of grey and pink from merci in paris. I actually get mine from spain in our town, where almost every gift shop there are selling hamman towels. recently i have had to buy lots of quality towels for the suffolk cottage, and though I love white company, they are pricey; good alternatives are from soak and sleep, next home, TK max, though you have to be lucky as its whats there on the day, and good old John Lewis. If you have to buy a big quantity of bath towels I recommend Next home, they are egyptian cotton and pretty good quality for the price. there happens to be a gigantic store on the way to the cottage at woodbridge.
