I expected these towels to be of much better quality and thought they would be of a high grade velour made in the USA. Sadly this wasn't the case, they were made in India and of very average grade. In the /Company's defence, they have been fantastic about returning these and I do sing their praises of professionalism in handling my complaint and return of these items.
The material is very soft to the touch and the towels have a very expensive look to them. I just wish they were a bit thicker. They are a bit too thin for my liking. But if you are not into thick towels then I would definitely recommend these. They are beautiful to look at.
I love the color and design of these towels, however, upon first washing they produced a large amount of lint. I have been looking for towels that would not lint when I wash them, but I don't think they exist!!!! I shook these towels and used a lint brush on them before I could use them.
I was concerned about how absorbent the towels would be because of the design. I washed them before I used them. They came out of the dryer (in an apartment complex laundry room) perfectly rectangular, did not shrink, did not lose their shape, and the colors were as brilliant as when they arrived. I bought red and grey and mix them in the bathroom. Put the red towel out with the grey hand towel, etc. They are gorgeous and feel wonderful, plus they wick water away very well.
I bought these in red and it is a deep red; very lovely! These are quest bathroom towels. I suppose if I was buying for the master bath I would choose a heavier weight with alot of absorbency. For what I wanted them for they are perfect!!
