These are beautiful, crisp, and soft white (not bright white and no yellowish tint). The linen has a great texture and the lining is a quality sateen. The best thing about these drapes is the length. I was able to launder them--yes, I washed them on cold/hand washables cycle and briefly put them in the dryer on medium heat)--I don't understand why people don't wash new items. They shrank about 3 inches but came out looking fabulous. I did steam iron them and the wrinkles were easy to get out. I sewed drapery rings to them and hung them on a chunky rod high above the window, over bamboo blinds (from OS too) and they just skim the floor. These are as nice as RH belgian linen drapes and half the cost. I wish there were more colors available.
These are good quality. But if you want wrinkle free curtains, be prepared for some ironing, especially if you are using several panels -- I used 4 panels per window to make the windows appear larger and more luxurious.

I had been looking for a product similar to the Pottery Barn drapery for my beach house, but didn't want to spend the $$$ for my second home. I ordered two pair for the master bedroom that is a combination of white, off-whites with accents of ocean colors. The color definitely is not a pure white as I expected, but rather more of an ivory color. The color differentiation did not matter in my room but might to somone who was looking for a white-white. The fabric is mid-weight linen, and I like the casual wrinkled look. The construction is good and the drapes hang well with clip rings. Again, Overstock.com did not dissappoint!

I finally was able to hang these curtains yesterday after moving into our new home in North Carolina. Right out of the package, the curtains were wrinkled. However, a good Spritzing with some spray starch and steaming and they were beautiful. I hung them from the tabs on the back and was very pleased with the look it created. Although there was some variation in length between the four panels I purchased, the difference was less than 1/2 an inch. The curtains added so much to the room. They let in a small amount of light and look stunning against our dark teal walls. The fabric is beautiful. Very pleased with my purchase!

I just love these drapes. They are long and make my windows look so much bigger. I could not wait for them to arrive, but as usual Overstock sent them within a few days. Others said they had to be ironed. I'm lazy, so just hung them and hope the creases would just fall out. It's been about two weeks and they are a little wrinkled but look spectacular in my bedroom.

I have been searching for inexpensive linen curtain panels FOREVER! I was so excited when I found these on Overstock and even more excited when I opened up the package. The quality is excellent and the color is perfect. I love love love these panels. I cannot believe the quality for the price. AMAZING!
I like the color of the drapes and also the fact that they are lined with cotton. The drapes are an off white linen and the lining is a white cotton. The drapes are wrinkled when you get them out of the package. I put them in the dryer with a wet cloth and they came out of the dryer with out all those folds. I would buy these again.
The curtains are better than I expected, for which I am grateful! Spending $1,000. on white curtains could have been a BIG mistake, but they ARE ELEGANT, well made, (lining is well done) and they drape beautifully, The pocketed tab top treatment looks great - no naked gaping tabs at the top, just a nice even gather/fold that open & close easily, and look great too. I'll iron them soon, but that will take a while. Not ironed they are shabby chic and that's OK too.

I am using these as my summer curtains in a bedroom painted very deep Merlot with white trim. The white linen curtains are very well made and give a summery feel to the room, which is transformed in the autumn with dark satin or velvet curtains from Overstock. I have not been disappointed yet in all the curtains I have purchased from Overstock, and I really love these white linen ones!
These are a lovely snow white color and a nice light weigh linen, they drape well and look much more expensive than they are. Great product!

Much nicer looking than the pictures, these drapes are heavy and very luminous with light in them. They do darken my room considerably unless direct sunlight is shining into them. They have a true 'drape' quality, meaning they hold a loose pleat on their own once hung, and fall very gracefully from a tie back. They have a good quality lining that keeps the cold at bay, and makes them opaque. Nothing at all is visible through them. They are all linen and have linen's natural sheen and subtle texture. I love them!
I love this curtain! I didn't realize the quantity was truly for only one panel but liked it so much, despite my budget, I went for it and ordered a second. It is well worth it for a lovely touch in our room. There are two options to thread the rod, one that bunches and one that makes a more spaced separation (as in the picture). They are great quality and really pretty.
Based on all the great reviews of these curtains I decided to give them a go and purchased 8. I took a risk and washed half of them on a cold delicate cycle and then tumble dried them, again on a cool quick cycle. They did shrink approx 3 inches in length ( I puchased the 96" length), but what I wasn't expecting was that the lining shrank more in length. As a result the side seams puckered and didn't sit flat. Maybe I'm fussy but I wasn't happy with that and I cut the lining away from the side seams and hemmed it separately. I hemmed the base of the curtains that I didn't wash to get them to the correct length. Even these seem to pucker on the side seams once hung, no matter how much I iron and steam them. All in all, I'd say ok, but for the effort I put in, I should have just made some curtains instead!
I loved these so much, I ordered more. They add elegance to any room, whether it's country or contemporary style. I ordered the white. It is not stark white but is as shown on picture...white. I did not iron mine as other reviews suggested and they are truly beautiful, elegant. I'm sure if I were to take them down and iron them, they would be even more amazing but there are very few wrinkles in mine...and all of them are equally hemmed and match when paired next to each other. If you are pondering the thought of buying, push they buy button....before they sell out. Those of us who have bought want more. lol
