I bought these for use with the bath sheets of the same style. The hand towels are nice and large. I like the texture/striping because for me it makes it less boring that plain white ones. They are less absorbant than more traditional towels but are a nice quality and so far have held up through several washes.
These are fluffy but huge! I like them, and the match the bath sheets we bought to match, but I didn't realize they were so big. They are not standard US sized hand towels. Also, the stripes are horizontal, which meant we couldn't use any of our previous towel that had vertical stripes, so be warned.
