I bought this towel and a hand towel in lavender as a gift. Initially the hand towel looked like a tea towel! However when I washed the towels and dried them they were exactly the look and feel I was after. The linen towels are simply stunning and the different colours are great to mix up the look of my concrete tiles.
I now have the towels in charcoal, lavender (more like a dusky pink)and olive green which is a great colour against my courtyard plants. All the colours seem to go together! Love them. They will make very special gifts for family.
