what can I say about these towels. The reason I love them may the reason someone doesn't. I LOVE the way they look in my kitchen. They're gorgeous, light & airy , but they are strong! They look like something from the swashbuckler days and I have one that hangs from my stove and my new white LED refrigerator, they look beautiful. But beauty isn't enough in a kitchen, not for a towel and that's where these puppies shine. They look fragile , but are super durable. I use them to wipe my hands when I'm juicing or cooking or whatever & these are super absorbent, clean so easily & stay looking great. I've tried lots of different towels in the kitchen, but these are my absolute favorite. Beautiful, durable and they feel great to touch, organic on top of that is really hard to beat.
