Last week I bought a set of towels. The tag said 'Made in Bangladesh.' They were the roughest cheapest thinnest towels I have ever purchased. Now that might be a problem for some, but it wasn't for me. When I was growing up we didn't have much money so our towels were pretty well worn out and they were line dried which meant they were also rough. I don't really like big fluffy towels. I like thin rough towels like I grew up with, but only in summer do I line dry them. Never fear. If you come to my house, I keep big fluffy towels for my guests!~ Welcome to the ever changing world of consumer goods in America. What you buy equates with poverty more and more every day. Some on here should really like that.
