These towels were much more luxurious than I expected. They were so thick, I had a hard time folding them. They kept their shape beautifully once I did. The edging is done in beautiful detail and high quality craftsmanship. The towels are soft and have a velvety nap. They look inviting when you enter the room. I used this particular set as part of my holiday decor, and they add a wonderful touch to the room. I plan to buy more of this brand. The price was outstanding.
