The towel itself is a great towel. I gave it a one star because I ordered the Platinum Gray which was gorgeous. A few months after use I noticed the colors changing. I made sure to wash my towels only with other towels and never to use bleach or any different harsh detergent. I put one of the towels off to the side after a few uses to see how much the color would change over the last year and it was stunning, and not in the good way. Love the towel, hate the color they have become. The towel in the middle is the one I put to the side August of 2021 and the two on each side are the ones used often, picture taken 09.11.22.
