I purchased this as a gift for a relative. She really enjoyed the towel. It is both attractive and useful.
The towel is thin, not coarse and the design is very nice. I only gave it a 4 star rating because it is a gift and therefore I haven't washed it to see how it would hold up. I see no reason for anything but a good result, but as it is a Christmas gift it will be awhile before I find out.
