We are offering this kit in the color shown, Peach, Natural and Chocolate or a Christmas theme of Lipstick, Natural and Winter Green.
We would also love for you to choose your own colors for this towel kit by picking three colors from our Aurora Earth 8/2 cottons and we will make a special kit just for you!
