The towels are both 100% cotton, and are from the same manufacturer. After a few months of washing, the Roman Spa towels have turned from white to yellow, but the hotel towels are still white (we are using the same wash and chemical programs for both sets of towels).

Textile Services Industry Gets National Spotlight

Our huge economies of scale allow laundries to use about two-thirds less water, energy and detergent than alternatives, such as washing at home, while hygienically cleaning textile products, improving disease control and reducing contamination.”
