i ordered the forest panels... let me assure you these panels are indeed VERY forest green in color and NOT the lovely sage green color as shown in the photos on overstock. this is not what i wanted at all... the panel itself if okay...nice, heavy weight. nowhere in the description does it tell you up to what size pole you can use. you must use a 1 3/8" diameter or less pole/rod. while doing a search for hopsack panels online, i discovered this exact panel (the photos are identical) to the jaclyn smith brand at xxxx. same colors, same photos...you can get one panel for xxxx. i am exchanging the forest color for the slate...hopefully i won't be dissapointed!
Maybe it's because I ordered the grey color, which is a boring color, but the material has no sheen so it looks very flat and boring. However, I did want these curtains as a nondescript background and they definitely fulfill that purpose. Their greatest quality is their fantastic light blocking! I also like how easy it was to get the wrinkles out and they hang beautifully.

They are indeed "hopsack" so if you're looking for something more elegant, keep looking. For me, they' were perfect. I would also suggest buying the curtain rod elsewhere. The prices here are very high and the selection is very limited.
Love these curtains! They are thick enough to give you privacy and block the sun's glare from the TV, but let a little light through. The grommets make it real easy to slide them open and closed. They are made well and I like the material - not too formal looking, but heavy and substantial. Followed another reviewer's suggestion to put them in the dryer for a few minutes before hanging. They come out looking great- no wrinkles or fold lines. Overall, a really good value for the price.
These curtains have a very casual elegance to them. The fabric is a bit rough, exactly what you'd expect from a hopsack curtain. Not as heavy as real burlap, but gets the idea across. Not lined. My chief complaint is that the curtains are 84" top to bottom. They are measured above the grommet. Once hung, they were noticably shorter than the other pole pocket curtains (also 84") we had behind them. This is due to at least 1.5" margin of fabric at the top of the grommet. The grommet hole is also fairly large, about 3" in diameter.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not as silvery-- more of a slate blue color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality. Bought them to filter light, and that's exactly what they do.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Decent. Grommets are a antiqued brass that is dark.
Love these curtains! They are almost burlap in consistency, and they do NOT block/filter light (in fact, I can still see fairly clearly outside when they are closed...) I don't intend on closing them ever/much, though, so they are perfect for us. They hang nicely and seem to be of good quality. Again, a good buy.
I like these. I ordered 2 sets for a large set of windows in my casual living room. Goes nicely with my decor. I bought another set after receiving the first shipment. Today, (about a month after my purchase) I was shopping at Kmart and saw these exact curtains! Jacklyn Smith makes them. They were priced higher than the per panel price here on overstock. However, if you are wondering about colors, you can check them out there prior to buying.

I love my curtains! They are exactly what I pictured and as described on the website. You can see through them, but it still blocks out the light so it's actually nice to still be able to see outside without the sun shining in. They are a burlap kind of material, but I like the material. I've gotten many compliments!

I love these curtains! I saw similar curtains at $$$ a panel so this is a great buy. My only desire is that they were lined. At the price, I can add a lining and still come out way cheaper!! Great buy!

I bought some in the fall and decided to get more for another large opening. The quality is terrific. The only flaw is the ones I bought in the fall and this purchase were not an exact match. This should be expected and since they are in different areas, not a big issue. Just a surprise. Nice quality.

I have being shopping for a long time for a pair of curtains that is not too expensive at the same time match up with my living room furniture. I am very happy with this purchase. I bought the wheat color, is just the right color i have being picture in my mind. There's a bit of orange color in it from the outside light, the curtains light up my whole room and it feels warm and cosy now.
I ordered the wine color. They're darker than the picture, but I actually think they look better in person. They hang well, and look crisp and neat when they're open. The other reviews were so different it was hard to tell what I would receive- thick or thin. Well, when they are closed, I can clearly see through them almost as though they are sheers! At night you can see right in. It's because although the fibers are thick, the weave is loose enough to show everything. I still like them, but I might try to line them or something.
I was so excited to have ordered these curtains only to be terribly let down upon receipt of them. The color turned out to be extremely dark. Like almost as dark as a christmas tree. The swatch pictured on line isn't even remotely close to what I saw.The material feels almost burlap like. Kind of rough.If I was going for something in like a woodsey cabin like environment, they'd be fine.But not for my dining room.
I wanted a casual pair of "drapes" for my enclosed porch. They are a perfect color (I bought the tan one). I wanted grommets for ease of use. They are not as rough as hopsacking or burlap but look similar with a nice feel to them. They have a generous hem and drape nicely. The price was just right and they exactly what I was looking to buy.
These curtains are very nice and hang beautifully. I ordered them in the green. The fabric is somewhat shear so it lets some natural light in during the day while still providing privacy at night. I have them in my family room and my bedroom.
