Best Answer:Actually, it is about 85% true to the photo. If anything, it is perhaps a tad more brown, but does have a lot of taupe. It is a very versatile towel and looks great in our kitchen which is predominantly white and gray with touches of light brown in the marble.
I know in the picture it looks a little on the khaki side, but the colors are actually gray as the background and a darker gray for the print and stripe. I love these towels, btw. I picked a couple up in the store and ordered several more. Hope that helps.
