Please note that Abyss & Habidecor lead times are significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Normally, these items are air freighted from Portugal to Canada. However, in the past few weeks, air freight costs have risen five fold. Our shipments must now be sent by ocean freight. Estimated lead times on out of stock tag order Abyss bath products is currently 2-4 months. The Mattress & Sleep Company does keep in stock a significant amount of Abyss Super Pile in white and ecru, along with a limited stock in several popular colours.

This page is specifically for the Abyss Super Pile Luxury Towel Set. Follow the links below for other Super Pile sizes not listed here.
The Abyss Super Pile is regarded as one of the finest cotton towels available anywhere in the world. An independent institute in the USA found Super Pile to test "Best." Abyss Super Pile was tested alongside a minimum of five other luxury brand towels. The towels were tested in "white" and "persimmon" colours. After 50 washings, the Abyss towel proved to be:
- The only towel which withstood 50 wash cycles without signs of falling apart.
- To be the most colour fast.
- To become denser and more absorbent with washing.
- To be 20% more absorbent than the next best towel.
Abyss towels are made of pure 100% Giza 70 Egyptian Cotton in all three weaving directions (warp, weft and pile). It is exceedingly rare for a towel to use pure Egyptian Cotton, let-alone in all facets of the towel. More weight is placed in the pile than in the towel base, allowing the towel to dry better than other towels of the same weight. As the base is also crafted from 100% Giza 70 Egyptian Cotton, it is also very strong and durable.
The pile of the towel is made of a double twist. This provides much greater strength, lower lint and superior absorbency. This also means if pulls or snags should occur, you can simply snip them off. This will not affect the towel.
The Mattress & Sleep Company tries our best to keep inventory on 9 or 10 of the most popular colours in the 3 most common sizes (face, hand and bath towels). Please see the Estimated Delivery, Shipping Costs & Availability section below for more details.
Are you wanting something larger than a bath towel, but not quite so large as a bath sheet? Consider a pool towel. Pool towels are the go-to option for a generously sized towel.

Wash and dry at low-medium temperatures. Drying hot will greatly reduce the life of towels and rugs. Do not over dry. Do not use fabric softeners, bleach, brighteners or bleach alternatives. Always wash towels and rugs separately and never wash with other articles of any kind. Please do not vacuum or iron.
Using a high quality specialty detergent such as Le Blanc Linen Wash is a great way to maintain your luxury textiles. Le Blanc Linen Wash is an exceptional cleanser designed for all washable and colourfast bed & bath linens.
Towel & Rug Colour Matching
Please be aware that Abyss towels and Habidecor rugs are made in separate facilities in Portugal. For this reason, dye lots and colouring do vary. Generally speaking, the more vibrant the colour, the less likely that a towel and rug would be a 100% perfect match. Most of the time, this will not be an issue as towels are often hanging or placed on a counter top, while rugs are on the floor.
We recommend a rug with a patterned design should you wish to avoid having slight shade variances between your towels and rugs.
Abyss Colour Swatches
Please note colours are approximate representations. The colours viewed here can vary substantially due to individual display configurations. St Genève and The Mattress & Sleep Company are unable to accept returns of product due to colours not matching the representations appearing on this website. Consider ordering an individual hand towel to sample a colour first. Hand towels are stocked in all 60 colours in-store.
The delivery was very fast once they were back in stock and sent. I have no complaints from this company. I will enjoy ordering again. :)
They are so lovely! Rather absorbent and they wash and dry beautifully. I didn't think towels should cost this much but now I know why they do.
