A few threads were coming out in a few places so at first I was concerned. I clipped them and washed, they are the same quality after washing, but I didn't realize how soft and absorbent they would be. Glad I took the chance, much nicer than I expected for the price.
It is so difficult to find a towel set that meets my qualifications. Most of them have lovely borders that may be attractive but are are impossible to absorb one drop of moisture and after the first laundering they shrink! The edge of the towel is often grabbed to dry hands or face - only to find a scratchy, hard or satiny border that is useless. This set boasts a simple and attractive border which is woven of the terry - a very practical feature. The towels are not flimsy and are large enough to be more than adequate. The first set arrived with a long pull in the bath towel. Overstock more than made it right in quick time. We are still very pleased with the towels after several months of use. There has been no border shrinkage (see my first paragraph) and they still look as good as they did at first. (And there are no more "pulls" to mar the looks of the towels.)
I was looking for thicker towels and these are two-sided, same depth. However, as with all thick towels, it seems to take a little longer to dry off with one. They don't grab liquid as well as some cheaper towels I have had. But regular washing should take care of this. I really like them otherwise.

- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes, except for slight color variation from picture to real product.
I found a few snags but just clipped them. Had been looking for nice towels for our master bath but didn't want to spend $25 for one bath towel. These are a good deal. They came in a variety of colors but only the brown would work in our bathroom and it's darker than I prefer. I'm sure they will last a long time. The hand towels could easily be used as a bath mat.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? Very heavy duty and big
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? very well
i'm giving these towels a two star instead of one because the bath towels are ok. the hand towels began shredding after the first wash. first one then another and now all of them. i am very disappointed! another criticism is that the bath towels stain very easily and regardless of oxyclean, etc., the stains set right in. i had my other white towels for over 5 years and they were fantastic. these do not cut it.
I want my bed and breakfast guests to feel pampered, and so I ordered four of these towel sets. They look good just hanging on the towel racks, and once my guests get to use them, they will think they have come to a very special place. They are big, absorbent, elegant and well worth the money.
These towels have been great so far except for some of the stitching on the edges has started to unravel once they have been washed twice. Was able to fix with a quick needle and thread though and so far no other complaints. The brown color is a little more grey than I expected, but still nice and the towels are very thick and soft. Would recommend for the price!
These towels look great in our bathroom and I couldn't be happier! I got the blue which is like a confederate blue which is exactly what I wanted. The towels are plenty big for my husky husband and absorbent too. He has complimented both the size and absorbency. They did not shed when washed which is a big plus! We have had these for approx a month and so glad I made the purchase.
