We purchased the "mango" color, which is a slightly reddish peach--like the color on my monitor--to brighten our neutral color bath but also to give us a great feeling towel. Got both. The band did shrink a little with washing (but I didn't dry on low, which the directions say to do, because I wasn't concerned with a little shrinkage). Despite the thickness of the towel, it is not heavy like some and dries out fairly quickly. Just so you know, the supima cotton is produced in the USA but towels like these come from India or China, since US mills can't make the fine weaves to create this kind of softness.
