Not that these towels are inexpensive, but these have all the high quality points in my view. They are very soft (even more so than some 900 gram Egyptian cotton towels I have) and plush, there was no lint when I washed them and they retained their color fully. I bought them as guest towels because the bright blue matched some of the dots in my guest bath shower curtain. I only wish they had more color options! My guests complimented me on the towels as well. Nothing negative to say...great buy!
