I got this towel in the colorgrown pecan color and I have it for my boyfriend to use. Colorgrown cotton (like the pecan or cactus) is actually somewhat bacterial resistant which is why I got it over the natural color. I find this bacterial resistance helps to reduce needed washings for the towel. My boyfriend likes the towel and uses it regularly now. I find that the color of the towel is much nicer looking in person than in the picture provided online. It was definitely worth the money spent.
