  • by Mary Babinski
  • 6 min read

In the world of luxury bath towels, Abyss Super Pile stands apart. Supremely plush, absorbent, and weighty, this towel represents the ultimate in luxury, style, and performance. Read on to learn more about Abyss Super Pile towels.

Super Pile: The Most Popular Style from Abyss Habidecor

If you’re in the market for a bath towel that delivers superior luxury and lasting performance, look no further than Abyss Super Pile. Super Pile is the best-selling style from the famous Portuguese towel manufacturer, Abyss, and a client favorite here at Fine Linen and Bath. Let’s take a closer look at these amazing towels and explore why they have so many devoted fans. We’re sure you’re going to love Super Pile as well.

Abyss Super Pile: Heavyweight Luxury

Abyss Super Pile towels are the absolute definition of thick, plush, luxury. They weigh in at a heavy 700 GSM and are incredibly soft with a spa-like feel.

That weight coupled with a long loop terry weave on both sides make Abyss Super Pile ultra-absorbent. These are thirsty towels. If you love a heavy, plush towel, Super Pile is for you. One comment we hear over and over is that a Super Pile bath towel feels like a warm, luxurious hug. And we couldn’t agree more. These opulent towels are a dream to dry off with.

Made Entirely from Egyptian Giza: The Finest Cotton on Earth

The beauty and performance of Super Pile towels begins with the quality of the cotton fabric. Super Pile towels are woven from the finest cotton on Earth: 100% Egyptian Giza Extra Long Staple Cotton. Giza cotton is grown only in the Giza Valley of the Nile River. This is a special place where the heat, humidity, and fertile soil provide ideal growing conditions. Giza cotton fibers are long and thin with maximum strength and softness. Giza cotton is also harvested by hand to protect the integrity of the fiber.

While other towel brands tend to incorporate different grades of Egyptian cotton in their products, Super Pile towels are made exclusively with Giza cotton. This makes Abyss Super Pile towels low in lint, stronger, and longer lasting. Abyss puts proportionately more weight into the pile of the towel as opposed to the base. This makes Super Pile towels more absorbent than other towels of the same weight. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you dry off with a Giza cotton Super Pile towel. Another quality we love about Giza cotton is how well it absorbs deep, rich dyes without fading. That’s why the color palette of Abyss Super Pile is so wonderfully vivid and varied.

A Versatile Range of Colors and Sizes

Choosing Abyss Super Pile means never compromising on style or versatility. Your bathroom is an intimate, personal space. It’s a sanctuary where you can express your individual style. Abyss Super Pile towels let you do just that with 60 designer colors. You’ll find a shade to suit any style, mood, or color scheme, from intense jewel tones to classic white, Ivory, and Ecru. Super Pile towels also come in a wide range of sizes to suit your needs, including three sizes of hand towel (the largest is perfect for drying hair); two sizes of bath sheet, two sizes of bath mat, and even a robe.

Abyss Super Pile towels also coordinate with luxury bath rugs made by Habidecor, the sister company of Abyss. Two solid-color styles -- Habidecor’s Must Rug and Reversible Rug -- come in the same color palette as Super Pile.

Design Details Set Abyss Super Pile Apart

Abyss Super Pile is more than just beautiful. In the world of luxury textiles, Abyss is known for premium design details. These elements set Abyss towels apart for superior longevity and performance, and Super Pile towels are no exception. These towels are made with Abyss’ signature bias tape trim with continuous rounded corners. There’s only one hidden seam on an Abyss Super Pile towel. These curved corners make Abyss towels more durable than towels with a traditional square finish with multiple seams that might fray.

Abyss Super Pile towels are also pre-shrunk and "piece-dyed" after sewing to ensure the towel, label, and trim are color matched. The towel you purchase will be the towel you see and feel, wash after wash.

Abyss Super Pile: Proudly Made to Last

When you wrap yourself in an Abyss towel, you’re getting the benefit of craftsmanship refined over centuries. Abyss towels are made in Portugal by textile artisans whose skills have been handed down through generations. You can learn more about the rich heritage of Portuguese towels here.

Like other luxury brands, the price of Abyss Super Pile towels reflects their high quality, superior design, and legendary craftsmanship. These towels are truly an investment and represent the finest the modern textile industry has to offer. As such, Abyss Super Pile towels will remain beautiful, soft, and absorbent long after lower-priced towels fall apart and need to be replaced. In fact, over time, Abyss Super Pile towels will prove a better value because they will last.

You deserve the spa-like softness and absorbency of Abyss Super Pile. It’s time to upgrade to the finest towel you’ll ever own.

Caring for Your Abyss Super Pile Towels

With proper care, your Super Pile towels will stay plush and beautiful over time. Follow these simple steps to help your bath towel set stay beautiful and absorbent:

  1. Wash your new towels before using. Read the care label and carefully remove any plastic tags with scissors.
  2. Sort towels by color (light, dark, and white towels separately) and weight. Wash these heavier towels in a load by themselves. Note: Abyss Super Pile towels are weighty and you may be only able to wash two or three at a time so as to not overload your machine.
  3. Use a detergent specially made for luxury linen such as Heritage Park Luxury All-Purpose Detergent. This concentrated detergent is made with plant-based ingredients and a proprietary blend of cleaning enzymes in a pH-neutral formula. It will get your towels clean and protect the integrity of the fabric. Never use chlorine bleach, a detergent containing bleach, or any type of fabric softeners.
  4. Wash in cool water to preserve color and protect towel fibers (white towels can be washed in warm or hot as needed for cleaning). Shake towels out after washing and dry according to instructions; medium temperatures are best for towel fabric.
  5. Skip using dryer sheets, which leave a waxy build up on towels and your machine. Instead, dry your towels with a set of wool dryer balls to restore softness and decrease drying time.

Over time, even plush towels can lose a bit of their softness and smell a bit stale despite regular washing. This happens due to mineral build up from hard water. Happily, you can revive and restore your luxury towels to "like new" condition in two simple steps using just baking soda and vinegar in your washing machine. Read more about how to keep your luxury towels soft and beautiful with these cleaning instructions.
