I purchased these towels in Grey and was very much looking forward to receiving them and using them at once. when they arrived they looked beautiful and I immediately put them on my towel rack to replace the hand towel I had been using for some time. That night after washing my face and drying my hands and face on the towel, it started to lose it's coloring! I had nothing on my hands or face but water. And that has continued ever since. I thought it might be a fluke with just the one towel but it has happened with a second towel as well. Such a shame since the price is very reasonable and the towels look and feel great.
