Nifty gifts from my DIL

This I have to say and i may sound unpatriotic, but i like japanese goods.. the designs are good, they are sturdy and practical. One of the many things my D-I-L gave me way back are sets of scissors, rolls of lint remover and these dainty little face towel. It is colorfast and most important it feels smooth to the skin. Why can't we manufacture towels as good as this? Cost? I suppose? har
