These towel sets are by far the thickest & most Luxurious towels I've ever owned. The quality is so far above normal industry standards,that it would'nt surprise me if they last the next 25 years. I've puchased what I considered good towels in the past, but they in no way compare to these. My wife said it'll take some getting used to the vast thickness of them. She also said "I'm not complaining". I like them so much that I went back and ordered additional face towels & cloths. They didnt match the original sets color exactly, but close enough.
