I bought this set of towels because there were more pieces for the price, compared to other more luxurious sets. It is described as a set perhaps for a vacation rental, and indeed, our vacation home has 3 bedrooms and various visitors. I used these towels recently, and compared them to the other more luxurious set I bought (at a much higher price). I LIKED THESE BETTER. These towels were slightly smaller, and slightly lighter, which I prefer anyway. They looked just as beautiful as the pricier towels, and I couldn't be happier. If I had a need to buy more, these would be my choice.
