These towels were beautiful when I took them out of the box. They look like very good quality towels. I washed them right away and they came out very soft and just as beautiful. They aren't super thick or super thin, they are a very nice thickness and weight and they dry better than any towel I've ever had. I bought the burgundy and the color is rich and beautiful, the soft texturing adds to the richness of the look and the feel. They look rich and beautiful, very high end, they are super soft and absorbent, the price is the best I've found for organic towels and they are natural and healthy. What more can you ask for? I have 3 sets and will probably buy 3 more.
