I bought these new towels to replace some others which had been in use for several years . These are fantastic!!! Even my husband and grandson like them. The color is so deep and rich...just like a chocolate bar. I combined them with a new set of bedding, some Oriental rugs, and the room is just great. Thankfully, I bought many others, and the cupboard is full. Each person who has used them has commented that they dry off well, and are luxurious, like a fine hotel. Now, we just need to invite some special friends.
