been looking for fresh new towels to go with decor of remodeled master bath. The terracotta is exactly what we've been looking for-not too brown and not too red. As we don't like overly large or thick towels (don't stay wrapped around waist or too heavy on the head due to weight), these medium weight towels are just right. They've gotten more absorbent now that they've gone thru the wash twice and we expect this to improve as they are used. I would buy this again.
