These are plush, heavy & over-sized towels and wash up great. They are comparable to Restoration Hardware's 802 gram towels (actually, these are higher), and though the color they call 'toast' is a little unusual, it was exactly what I needed. These are the best hand towels I've ever purchased, and got a set of 4 for less than 2 at a high-end home store. I wish I could get the same weight towel set in color and size combinations for the rest of my house. The other reviews were spot on, love them!
