Do these have a finish on the fAbric? I know that many cotton towels are not very absorbent and I'm guessing it's because they have a finish.

No, these do not have a finish on the fabric so they are lovely and absorbent.

Beautiful, but not printed square to fabric grain

If I were making these just for myself, I would be pleased with them, because the designs are beautiful. However, not one of them is printed exactly in line with the grain of the fabric. I don't mind a crooked towel for my own use, but I bought twenty pairs of towels, in ten different patterns, to give away as gifts and to sell at a craft fair. The short edges are indeed aligned to the weave of the fabric, top and bottom both. However, the two sides are not. The resulting towel may not be folded squarely because it is a parallelogram instead of a rectangle. I have a couple of photos to show what I mean, but I do not see a place to upload them. I wish I had bought just one set of towels to start with, but my previous experience with the fine quality of the linen sold here had led me to believe that the cotton prints would be of the same high standard.

When we run production there can be times when the fabric can move a bit and this is may cause the print to be slightly off grain. In this case we are within the acceptable % of industry standards where this would not be considered a defect. We have included a helpful step in our sewing instructions for the tea towels located in our help center, posted as step 8 or on the sewing card inserts that will accompany any new orders it is step 6: To square up your fabric, gently tug the towels in each direction on the diagonal. Give your hems a final press on the wrong side to set your stitches. Your towels are ready for washing and use.

The top and bottom of each unhemmed towel is beautifully aligned with the weave of the cotton.

The sides of the same towel are not, though. This results in towels that are perfectly functional to dry dishes and wipe one's hands on, but they will not fold squarely. If I trim the sides to align with the grain, I'll have rectangular towels with skewed frames on them.
