Martha Stewart believes that "the most beautiful things in life are simple and functional, but not always easy to find." That's why she teamed up with Amazon to create a storefront for all things Martha. She explained, "This enables us to debut some of my very favorite items on Amazon. We can now give the customer the ability to shop my new cookware, bedding, and textile collections, and they can enjoy videos and recipe content from my media library, which is very exciting. I think it's going to be very appealing to our customer base because we haven't had it all in one place before. I'm very excited about it."

She elaborated, "I like very much that Amazon is enabling us to have a brand store with both new products and existing products. Everything will be complementary and we will also include our beautiful outerwear, furniture, lighting, as well as garden and holiday. So, there's a lot of stuff."

Martha dished on her new Amazon products along with some classics in an exclusive E! interview.

"I think the reason people keep coming back to the Martha Stewart brand for towels is that they have had very nice experience. I'm still using towels that I bought from my Kmart line years ago. I continue to add new towels to my home, but I'm not getting rid of the old ones because I don't need to. I am very happy with our towels and I think our customers really love the color assortment and how they're very nicely made."

These sets come with two hand towels, two towels, and two washcloths. Currently, there are three colors to choose from.
