I just use these as decorative on my dining table, so I can’t speak to how they actually absorb or launder. Colors are beautiful and true to the photo. I love how they fold and display in the napkin rings.
I can’t say enough about this serving tray! IIt’s not too heavy, but is durable! I looked everywhere for a similar tray and couldn’t find one at this price! Everything I found was much more and not as good looking. Don’t pass this one up!
