Only Burberry could make a cotton and polyester towel that costs $225.00. This expensive piece of cloth is quilted on one side and "fluffy towel fabric" on the other. Yes, that is how saksfifthavenue.com described it. Don't forget that it ties in front with a cute little ribbon. That must account for $50.00 or so of the price. Sometimes I am just amazed. Lord help you if you wanted a set of them. At least babies can't mess up towels and permanently stain them with eyeliner so this should stay relatively like new. Hopefully.
