When the photos don't do it justice

Posted on June 05, 2015 by claire ongley | 0 comments

As we all know, there are various pitfalls of shopping online. You can't try things on, or just touch and inspect them closely. Sometimes the item doesn't look like the photo when you get it in the mail, or maybe it is much bigger or smaller than you had thought, or lesser quality.

From my perceptive, there are some products which I feel the photos don't quite represent how nice the product actually is. I wish I could tell my customers how great a particular item is 'in real life' and that the photo just doesn't do it justice. So, here are some of these products!

 Washed Linen Waffle Hand Towel

These hand towels are are just so lovely and soft! They are made from beautiful quality washed Lithuanian linen, and are a real touch of luxury. They come in crisp white or soft silver. I love these hand towels!

Goat Hair Dust Brush

Again, so soft! The goat hair bristles are so fine and soft you'll want to just brush it over your face (ok, yes I did). It's also great for dust, but even better, it looks very smart hanging on a hook in the kitchen or laundry.

Arda Turkish Towels

These are a little more expensive than the other Turkish Towels and that is because of their lovely quality. They look and feel great, almost too nice for the beach. I love these ones in the bathroom.

Rustic Donegal Throw

The Donegal throw is thick and rustic with rich colours. It's hard to describe, but it is a really strong, masculine throw, as opposed to fine and soft. I can imagine taking this blanket camping in the woods and sitting by the camp fire with it wrapped around me.
