I wanted nice plump towels in pretty colors. When I use towels I want to be welcomed by them.You see, my idea of luxurious is a towel that caresses me like cashmere, soft like a teddy bear, and simply ostentatious to my skin. My plum colored towels were plush and vibrant right out of the bag and have remained the same after countless washings. These are definitely the kind of towels that I can find at the Four Seasons. I am abundantly pleased with this collection of towels and I plan many more to add to my collection.
The quality was excellent BUT - these face clothes are so thick and heavy we couldn't use them. In the shower I had to use two hands to wring them out and, because of their thickness, not to be too gross but...you can't use them, say, between your toes without a real effort. Just too dense.
These are the best towels you will ever buy, & they will last for years. This is my 2nd set. The 1st (Tea Rose) seemed a but thick @ 1st, but eventually became just right. They will soak up the water, & great quality. Can't go wrong. They will have some minor lint until a few wash cycles.
