I was concerned initially that the shower curtain would be too thin and flimsy, but that has not been the case. Of more concern was the attached shower liner that I felt would be permeable to water and that water would end up on the bathroom floor. That too has not been the case. The attached liner is non-separable from the curtain, and as a unit is attached to the shower rod by velcro straps. Since the unit is lightweight, the 12 straps are sufficient to hold the unit in place. It is not known at this time whether or not these fabric straps will last versus the usual metal hooks. One good thing is that there will be no rusty grommets. I AM PLEASED WITH THE CURTAIN. It's colors are subdued, but attractive.
