I love these towels! I bought several of the handtowels in the peacock color, and they are beautiful! The color is just right...not too bright (or they would probably look cheap). I love the aqua color with the ivory; I think the two colors look really good together, and they match my decor perfectly. I am actually using these as dinner napkins instead of handtowels. I just took them to a alterations shop and had each handtowel cut in half and made into 2 napkins. All I had to do was buy some ivory material for them to line the raw edge with, and it was easy to find fabric at a local fabric store that matched perfectly to the fabric already on the other 3 edges. I love my napkins! They are unique, and I really like that they are thicker than standard dinner napkins; they work so much better! They look nice folded and placed on my dinner plates or rolled up in a napkin ring. I've discovered that they also work very well for placemats should I ever get tired of them as napkins! You can use these towels for so many different purposes...not only what they were created for!
Beautiful accent in our bathroom!
I coveted these towels for the longest time, so I'm glad I finally grabbed some when they went on sale. They are a staple in our bathroom; I even got rid of our other hand towels completely. The color, the texture and the detail - just beautiful!
I searched high and low for decorative towels that would still be fluffy and absorbent, and I admit that I was skeptical when I found these. I had a few options at Crate+Barrel, a few at Macy's, etc, but all of them were boring. These felt like my grandmother's old brocade towels, but hipper and more fitting for my current bathroom. I read the reviews, purchased them regardless of the few comments about their being not as fluffy as anticipated, and I will say that I am very happy with my purchase. The goldenrod color is a bright shade that offsets my black bathroom, and they are indeed fluffy towels. I was surprised, given the alternation of the cloth patterns, at just how absorbent they are. I've washed them a couple of times now, and I will say that they are holding up very well. For the combination of aesthetic value and quality, I am extremely pleased with my towel purchase.
