Here’s everything you need to know about Weezie.
Really Easy / Tyler Roeland
Admittedly, I wasn’t one to have many opinions on bath towels until recently (sheets are more my thing). I have sets year round and I have a Turkish towel that I like to add to my rotation in the summer. Needless to say, I was happy with everything in my linen closet. But a trip to a spa last year made me curious if I could create a similar feeling at home with fluffier towels, and I’ve kept coming back to Weezie.
If you’re new to Weezie, the Savannah, Georgia brand was founded by two friends. Liz couldn’t find the luxury towels she loved so she contacted her friend Lindsay. Together, the two founders launched a brand that focuses on high-quality towels made from 100 percent organic cotton. And an added bonus is you can personalize each towel for a fun southern touch.
I first heard about Weezie from two friends down south. Both praised the benefits of these luxurious towels, and they also agreed that once I tried Weezie, I simply would never go back. Keeping her lofty remarks in mind, I decided to give Weezie a shot after listening to Liz share the brand’s story on the How’d She Do That? podcast.
Signature bath towel
To Buy: Starting at $64; weezietowels.com.
I knew I wanted a proper Weezie experience, so I went with two classics: the Signature Bath Towel and the Signature Hand Towels. Although the brand offers a few colored towels (light blue, light pink, navy blue, and grey), what attracted me the most was the idea of crisp white. So I decided to order both in white with light pink piping for a little twist (there are 10 piping colors in total). After then experimenting with the 15 personalization options and 11 yarn colors, I finished my towels by adding my monogram in light pink yarn in a swirling Ardsley style (personalization costs an additional $15 per towel).
The story goes on
The Signature Bath Towel measures 29″ x 58″, while the Signature Hand Towels come in a set of two and measure 19″ x 30″. Without using a measuring tape when choosing which towels to order, the sizing felt generous but not overwhelming (I also considered the Signature Bath Sheet) – and I’m happy to report that I was right . While I haven’t used this feature yet due to a lack of hooks in my bathroom, I love the addition of a fabric loop camouflaged in the piping so you can hang towels for “faster” drying, Weezie says.
When I opened my package of Weezie towels, which the brand kindly sent me to try for free, my very first reaction was, “Oh, wow.” I was immediately struck by the plushness and sheer luxury of these towels, which feel absolutely different than my typical finds from large boxes. But I didn’t want to get too excited until I washed and dried them. I followed Weezie’s suggestion to wash the towels in cold water instead of hot water (my typical choice) and I finished the cycle by drying the towels on a low setting. After the process, I noticed that my towels barely pilled – and they still feel just as soft after two wash and dry cycles. While I can’t speak about using the towels to remove makeup, I do want to point out that the brand has specialty makeup towels that shoppers say they love.

When it came time to use my Weezie towels, I tried to keep all expectations in check. But after wrapping myself in the Weezie towel for the first time, I understood what my friends meant when they said I would never want to use anything else again. I really felt transported back to the spa I visited last year as the towels were absorbent, wonderfully soft and more relaxing than I ever thought possible. I also love that my Weezie towels look more elegant and chic than anything else I own when hanging on my towel rail.
Before trying Weezie, I was never one to say that a set of towels is a must. But I absolutely changed my attitude. Weezie towels are a perfect example of a relatively affordable spa-like treat that’s perfect as a wedding gift or as a sweet nod to a friend or family member in need of some relaxation after moving to a new home.
These are my first Weezie towels, but they definitely won’t be my last, just like my friends have suggested. If you’re curious too, join me and buy a Signature bath towel or set of Signature towels. But be warned, you’ll soon find yourself more invested in towels than you ever thought possible.
