These have been specifically selected for their high quality. Each is made of 100% cotton in a generous size of 28×20. They are soft and absorbent with a beautiful finish. They have vertical stripes down each side in blue, green or red. The stripes cannot be seen when the towel is folded and hung, only when opened up for more drying surface. These colored stripes coordinate nicely with the embroidered design colors. They are prewashed prior to being embroidered to prevent shrinkage to your design. There are numerous design and thread color options to match any décor.
