Linens have the powerful ability to tie a bathroom together. Whether they're adding warmth, a new textural element, or a pop of color, bath sheets and hand towels are an important and really fun purchase to make. So why settle for any old towels? Instead of sorting through the internet's millions of average options, we rounded up the 11 best spots to shop for extra-special decorative picks. From handwoven textiles to organic cotton cloths to affordable finds, here's what you need to transform your bathroom into the sanctuary you deserve.
The artists behind MINNA have an incredible ability to combine colors in the most satisfying way. The New York-based, queer led brand sells an array of textiles and artwork — from rugs to woven baskets — but we have such a soft spot in our hearts for the brand's handwoven towels from Guatemala and Mexico. They make the perfect gift for yourself or anyone dear to your heart.

Revival may be known for curating an insane collection of one-of-a-kind, restored vintage rugs, but did you know the retailer also carries a stunning line of GOTS certified organic Turkish towels?

We simply can't get enough of the brand's hand towels with a single thick stripe down the center. They are so luxuriously soft and thick.

6. Coming Soon
Coming Soon is an undeniably cool NYC-based design and gift shop filled with hidden gems and designer favorites. While we're obsessed with pretty much everything from this in-person and online store, the prominent selection of Dusen Dusen is the reason we couldn't keep this retailer off the list. There's no better place to score bright, artistic, and innovative hand towels.
Our pick: Dusen Dusen Gem Hand Towel, $25
7. West Elm
It's no big shocker that West Elm has a very solid selection of textiles. They ring up at a really fair price and they're often discounted even more. Plus, the retailer sells a really beautiful selection of handwoven towels from smaller makers.
Our pick: Creative Women Cotton Hand Towel, $24
Olive & Linen was founded by a mother of four who was tired of washing loads and loads of bulky towels. She wanted flat woven Turkish towels made from high-quality material, with expert craftsmanship, and at an affordable cost. This desire turned into a collection of beautifully crafted textiles at a price that's pretty incomparable.
9. World Market
World Market is another great spot to search for affordable finds. The pieces don't feel quite as unique as those from other retailers on the list, but there are a handful of really great picks.
Etsy obviously has a wonderful selection of decorative hand towels because ... well ... it's Etsy. Enough said.
