After hunting all over the internet I finally found these unique Herringbone patterned throws. I was trying to find an interesting, plain ivory color and these were better than I'd hoped to find. Very attractive and about what one would expect for the price, though they are a bit more lightweight than I thought they would be. I have not washed them yet, so I don't know if the embossed pattern will remain as crisp after laundering. My main use is to place the throws over the backs of our new recliners to keep them from getting soiled over time.
