We live simply, but we also like a few luxuries. We believe on spending money on certain high use items that will last a long time and repay the investment. Towels are one of these items.
We splurged on towels three years ago, after buying Martha Stewart's Everyday 5-Star Egyptian Cotton Towels from Kmart for years (they are good too), and have never looked back. We bought Christy Embrace towels, which are made of cotton, modal and silk. They are incredibly soft, incredibly absorbent and incredibly tough. They still look new. And the 14 colors are so much richer due to the silk.
