Frankly, I am amazed at both Martha Stewart AND Macy's for offering such cheap towels. I received my order (quickly) in a very damaged shipping bag, but the contents were intact. I purchased towels, washcloths and bath mats - 16 items in all. They looked flimsy through the individual bags, but I opened one up anyway. Right out of the bag, there were snags, bad bindings, loose threads, and the towels were so thin I quickly decided that these would be returned. So surprised in the very poor quality of these towels. I buy on-line regularly, rarely return items, and have only written one other review (which was a glowing review), but I felt I had to let people know what they were getting with these items.
