Graccioza Towel Buyer's Guide: Bee Waffle vs. Long Double Loop vs. Egoist

  • by Mary Babinski
  • 4 min read

Here at Fine Linen and Bath, we're proud of our reputation as a leading online retailer of luxury linens. As any client or visitor to this site knows, we deliver the finest selection of linens in the marketplace. We help clients understand the fabric content of the various textiles; evaluate relevant details, and choose the essential pieces that meet their unique needs. Three bestsellers from luxury linen mill and manufacturer, Graccioza -- the Bee Waffle, Long Double Loop, and Egoist -- are stunning options, each with a unique design style and benefits.

Comparing Graccioza Bee Waffle, Long Double Loop, and Egoist Towels

All Graccioza bath linens are made in Portugal at the company's mill. The brand offers a wide range of color options and a shorter lead time while being comparable in quality to other luxury textiles, such as Abyss. The Graccioza product line is machine washable and includes coordinating rugs, mats, robes, and beach towels

The differences among the Bee Waffle, Long Double Loop and Egoist are the style, weight, and type of cotton used. Graccioza's Bee Waffle is a textured, distinctive design made from superior combed cotton. At 550 GSM it is mid-weight, soft and absorbent, with classic rounded corners and double sewn edges. The Long Double Loop is made from superior Egyptian cotton; it is highly absorbent and weighs in at 700 GSM, also with the same rounded corners and a double sewn edge. The ultimate in luxury, the Egoist is an enhanced version of the Long Double Loop. It is super absorbent and made from 800 GSM Extra Long Staple Egyptian Giza Cotton. Egoist towels are treated with a formula that inhibits the bacteria and fungus that collects in fabric. Learn more about this treatment on our Egoist product detail page.

How to choose the right towels for your home

Choosing the right style towels for your home comes down to a matter of personal style, user preference, and purpose. Graccioza's many options and colors -- from simple white towels to richly colored options -- will suit any bathroom decor. If you like a soft towel with a textured, exfoliating feel, consider the Bee Waffle; it's a lighter weight option that dries quickly, which makes it great for humid climates. If you prefer a heavier towel with a bit more absorbency, consider the opulent Long Double Loop or the luxurious Egoist. These will require a bit more effort for towel care due to their weight. Also, evaluate whether having a matching bath rug is a priority. Do you use a towel warmer? Are you in the market for coordinating robes and beach or pool towels?
