I was quite surprised of the quality of these bath mats. These Utopias Luxury cotton bath mats are an excellent value for two! Upon arrival I examined the mats closely and they were made extremely well. A double hemmed stitching around the outside edge to prevent fraying . I would suggest washing them separately the first time, as new towels /bath mats often have excess lint. We did lay down a separate peace of slip resistant padding under the mat to prevent any slipping. Stepping out of the shower or bath onto these bath mats felt wonderful on your feet. They absorb the water nicely and their classic design was just what are bathroom needed. A super product at a great price.
