I ordered one set, to see thickness and quality and make further decisions on what to purchase for a swimming pool. I previously worked or a luxury retailer, that sold bath fixtures and towels. I had hands-on experience with towels and knew what to look for. I placed the order on Wednesday, the delivery came first thing Friday. These towels are absolutely beautiful, and exceed my expectations! Perfect hand, plush, absorbent, and should be considered luxury-item! I loved these so much, I'm ordering another (14) for the poorhouse, to stock-pile!
