I've had these towels a few months now, and I wanted to see how well they held up after several washings. They look and feel beautiful, and initially, I thought the quality was better than I expected. If I had written this review sooner, I'm sure I would have given them a better rating. This last wash, I noticed the whole side seam had unraveled. I will either take the time to sew it as best I can, or end up donating them. I may have just gotten a flawed set, but I've had some towels that take years before the stitching unravels.
