These panels are beautiful! I read the reviews before I bought them and most people talked about how wrinkled they are when they arrive. I ordered anyway and I'm glad I did. Yes they were very wrinkled but I used my iron on the silk setting( with steam) and ironed them with the grain of the silk (this is important,as the wrinkles disappeared once I ironed them with the grain instead of back and forth). They look terrific in my dining room and the color I ordered(grey) is perfect. I highly recommend these...ironing only took a short amount of time. The price is amazing for the quality of these. The black out feature is very good also,although that was not my main reason for purchasing these curtains.
I purchased the drapes in the gray and white color. The synthetic fiber is easy to keep clean and looks like real raw silk. The gray colored drapes are room darkening and are nice to have for a window that faces to the sun. The off white drapes are a milky colored white and are absolutely beautiful.
Ordered the off white thermal curtain (set of 2). Both arrived filthy, we think probably a return and accidentally sent to us. Asked for replacement and to check before shipping. Set arrived fine. We ordered a second set to match and requested that they check before shipping. Was told absolutely NO, they could and would not do it. Shipment arrived, one out of 2 panels arrived with dirty mark. Called customer service and asked if they could just ship one replacement and check it really well first. NOPE, had to send 2 panels. Not happy at this point but we really like the curtains. Again, they send a replacement and one of the 2 panels had a black/dirty mark. So out of last 2 orders, one clean panel each. Good thing we held off on shipping back the 3rd order. Such a hassle to have to contact customer service, and drive to ***, not once but twice! DON'T RECOMMEND!!!
I needed something inexpensive that would block out the sun on my huge windows. It definitely keeps the heat out. However, it does not hang smoothly at all. It has stayed stiff for four months now, with the fabric not relaxed or smoothed out from time. Color is great though. Back side coating makes it stiff. But it works.
Very nice drapes. Arrived nicely boxed, they seem to make every effort to keep them from wrinkling, but silk wrinkles. I hung them yesterday and the majority of the wrinkles have fallen out. The color is just what I expected, the grommets are big enough, and the fabric is lovely. Nice backing. These drapes are an excellent value.
Bought these curtains to block out the sun in my son's apt. I found the fabric to have a nice feel. Beware when ironing though--Do not iron the lining as it will disintegrate. Look great and do the trick as far as keeping the room dark
I bought these black out curtains in the teal for my son's nursery. I absolutely loved their quality (very heavily, definitely would have blocked out the sun and heat), however I had to return them because the window in the room is an odd one and it just didn't look right. I will probably have to buy a roman shade instead but I want to get the gray color for my master bedroom because they are awesome curtains and I was so bummed they didn't work out. The teal is a tad bit lighter than the picture but I knew that when I bought them based on other people's reviews.
I would only recommend these curtains if you have a professional steamer. They are a mass of wrinkles from top to bottom. I was very disappointed. I tried to iron them out with no success. I did have a professional steamer which did take all the wrinkles out but very time consuming.
I bought the off white and I like the color, not yellowish. Fabric has a nice pearly finish. I put each in the dryer with some damp washcloths to take the folds out, which was moderately successful. They are NOT very light-blocking. One of them has a flaw in the backing, which you can see when the light comes through, but it's not too bothersome.
I was REALLY excited to get these curtains. To me, the picture made them look thick, luxurious and quality. I was dissapointed at how thin they were when I pulled them out of the box, and I thought they were be more sheen and would have a rich texture...they don't. Don't get me wrong I do like them, but if I could afford to return them I would opt for something else. (I purchased the off white - great color).
