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.

I bought two pair, one in green, the other in rose. As the green in the only color pictured fully, I did get what I expected, and I am perfectly content with the shade, color, length, and opacity. Others have mentioned that these are welcome window treatments for privacy, adding a bit of sheer, but not so much as to view the neighbor's house, or to disallow dressing at night. The rose is much brighter than pictured. In the package, the fabric is folded, hence darker. Unfolded and against sunlight, it becomes a sherbert pink not at all in keeping with the earth tones of my home. Crinkles in such a color can appear darker than necessary, emphasizing the synthetic fabric. This may not be the best color choice, for windows receiving very bright sunlight. In a window mostly shaded, they seem deeper, and less obtrusive. Overall, not a bad buy, for the price. They do wash well.

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.

The curtains didn't quite look the way I had expected. Instead of natural linen they have more of a synthetic look. For the price they aren't bad but if you truly want linen these aren't for you.

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.

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.

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.?

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.

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.

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 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.

The sheen on this fabric is perfect, looks very expensive - not synthetic or cheap looking at all. They definitely darken the room, significantly. They are a little wrinkled still- I was hoping that they would fall out after a few days but I'm going to have to try the trick someone else posted about putting them in the dryer for a few minutes.

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 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.

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%.

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 look beautiful, simple and stylish. Very elegant and romantic. I was quoted thousands of dollars to have similar ones fitted, but these look perfect, and fit exactly as specified. The longer length and double width was almost impossible to find elsewhere, and was going to be very expensive to have made. I have fitted my whole apartment with these soft sheers, and they look fresh, pretty and soft. The fabric is synthetic, so it's not quite as luxurious or high-quality as a non-synthetic fabric, however you wouldn't know it to look at them. When I received these, I opened them and washed them in the washing machine on a normal cycle, just to have them clean and fresh before hanging. They washed really easily.
