Very vivid color and style. Be aware: curtains are thin (if there are bright lights outside, they'll make the curtain glow, which is fine -- just don't expect blackout. ) These curtains are made from a fabric not found in nature (poly-nylon blend, ribbons sewn to curtain with monofilament), which gives them a plastic-y feeling. Workmanship is not stellar -- loose threads, incomplete hem -- but only noticeable if you're looking closely. Overall, the bright, fun style makes up for these shortcomings.

These are pretty but were not the quality I expected. They were too synthetic in nature. I returned them for a refund.

These drapes look nice if you don't look too closely. Quality's good, but definitely synthetic. Does block heat, cold, light and sound which is what I needed.

Look pretty and true to color. Definitely feel 'cheap'...thin, synthetic fabric. I bought for the master bedroom, but I think these are more of a guest room product, if you know what I mean.

These curtains do not only fail to black out light - it is really hard to get the creases out of them. They are incredibly thin and hang poorly - overall looks cheap. They also have an odd synthetic shine to the material.

The color was fine and they do have good blackout ability , however the fabric was synthetically gross. They feel rubbery and plastic. The fit was not wide enough for my window so I'll either have to buy another set and add to them or return them.?

The curtains are gorgeous. I found the color true, the packaging very impressive, and the quality high. I am using them in a family room that can get a fair amount of sun and expect the synthetic to wear better than a silk.

I got the royal blue. the color was nice, but the fabric looked and felt like something you would make a superman costume out of. Very synthetic and utilitarian. For the price, you can get much nicer thermal drapes on clearance elsewhere, which is what I did.

This fabric is extremely synthetic. It was very wrinkled when it came out of the bag and it took me a long while to iron it. Even ironing didn't work. Over two months the wrinkles are slowly falling out. I don't recommend this to someone who wants a presentable curtain.

The fabric is heavy, tightly woven, and has a soft finish. I'm sure it would have done the job. However the Pepto pink color and the fabric's synthetic sheen just have an overall impression of cheapness that would have bothered me even in a child's room. The stars are cute, but the curtains had to go back.

As noted by other reviewers, these curtains are great right out of the package. The creases and wrinkles have mostly smoothed out and are not obvious; however, they would probably look better with a little pressing. Regardless, the curtains look good in the room and do a good job of blocking out the very bright security light outside the window. Although it is a synthetic fabric, it has a nice hand feel.

I just received these and I'm sending them back. In all fairness, I did not hang them so they may be great at blocking out light. But they are pretty hideous. The fabric is shiny and very synthetic looking. I ordered "chocolate" and it's a very unattractive, lighter brown color my husband described as looking like poo. I would not recommend these if you are looking for anything that is remotely aesthetically pleasing.

I ordered taupe. The colors are nice, but the taupe is darker than the pics represent--- and the blue is not quite as vibrant. They are not too thin...not too heavy....but they are kind of stiff and do not drape or fall as elegantly and effortlessly as the pics portray. Although they are synthetic silk, they have an appearance of being somewhat more high-end.....they are lovely, and we are very content with our purchase.

These curtains were thick, silky feeling, and didn't have that foam lining that disintegrates in the wash. Definitely looks like a synthetic material - but just plain, not offensively so. Didn't love the color but that's my own fault - the beige was kind of a cool greenish beige and turns out I just don't like a whole wall of beige! Light blocking quality was not 100% but still pretty dark - maybe 80%.

Perfectly good synthetic velvet curtains. I have two sets. Love that they're extra wide, this saved a bundle over the twice-as-many-sets I'd have had to buy with other curtains. I had one set hemmed up at the local dry cleaner and they had no trouble. Worth the money, as described.

I was impressed with these window scarves. They had a few wrinkles due to the folding while packaged, but they ironed up fairly quickly (all 848 inches, since I had purchased 4--that's a LONG length of fabric to iron!) on "Synthetic" setting. Being a polyester fabric, they were slippery to work with while draping them, but I used clips, which held them in place as I worked to drape and knot the scarves. They do drape nicely and for the price, are a great value! My windows now look bright and airy in our master bedroom, all staged as our house is ready to go on the market!

This exceeded my expectations; the curtain looks beautiful tied up and blocks out enough light when lowered. It is sturdily made and the color I chose (sky blue) is lovely. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the synthetic fabric catches easily on rough hand skin. Because I tie and untie it every day, it keeps reminding me how dry my hands are! Overall, I would buy another one of these with no hesitation.

these curtains replaced some cotton/linen pottery barn curtains that were also a burgundy color, except they had faded badly. these blackout curtains are thick, the color(burgundy) is very nice, the fabric is shiny (as previously reviewed), but not in a bad way. they are synthetic, so they do have a sheen to them. highly recommend them. i'm not one to skimp on cost -- i was going to pay over 200 dollars for some fancy restoration hardware ones, but am so glad that i got these instead. glad to have saved a sheckle or two!

I bought 3 pairs to use on my screened porch to block the strongest sun and provide privacy . The first two pairs have been up for a month and I just added the 3rd pair, which match perfectly. They have a translucency and lightness that allow light and breeze in and because they're made of synthetic material, they won't rot in the sun and rain. They are much less expensive than traditional outdoor curtains, have held up beautifully (grommets are strong), and I highly recommend them.

I like to sleep in a room that is pitch black, and these curtains do the trick without being too thick, too bulky, or too synthetic/artificial. They drape nicely and they block almost 100% of the outside light. They seem to be a bit longer than my previous curtains (also 84"), but when I pull them back with the tie-backs they're just right (left loose they are a tad bit too long). They had the usual folds/wrinkles when opened, but 15 minutes in the dryer with a damp towel and those vanished. I am very, very pleased with these.
