These are VERY expensive! Though they are 100% bamboo, their cost is not justifiable. On the other hand, they are not the BB&B variety. This is the first time I've found this with an Overstock product. I like their light weight, but my husband doesn't, preferring a more robust fabric. The bamboo towels are thin & silky. They do absorb well. Nevertheless, I do not consider them a good value & wouldn't purchase them again at this price.
