These cloths make the best handkerchiefs. They are doubly thick, as they are constructed from 2 pieces of cloth back-to-back. They held up through years of machine washing and drying cycles, and the intense colors and patterns didn't fade. I carried these on many biking and hiking trips and they never frayed at the edges. At first, the price seemed a bit high for a single cloth, not a set, but they are made in Canada by a small company that probably pays a living wage, they hold up forever and you really get two cloths in one, so I don't mind the price. Plus, they just make me smile every time I blow my nose.
I love these napkins. They are so big and since they are double sided much thicker than the standard napkin. Once you touch them you can tell the quality and I love that you can use it as a place mat vs. just a napkin. They are the greatest teacher gifts and my whole family carries them in their lunches.
