I bought 6 different albums from Indonesia. I loved them because they were natural and earthy, but I was almost afraid some would be ugly. I ordered them anyway--and I was pleasantly suprised!! Not only do they look fantastic, they smell good too! Like fresh wood. I bought these as bridesmaid gifts and can't wait to give them out. It was a great deal and super fast shipping.
I bought this album for a friend as a post-wedding gift to put some of the pictures in. It's gorgeous - very authentic. It isn't big, but I wasn't expecting it to be. It can hold one photo per page, both sides. If you're into worldly gifts, you'll really enjoy this.
This album is quite attractive; however, I consider it fragile. The photos are not protected, but have corner slots only to hold the pictures. There is tissue paper to keep in each page, so I suppose that would be considered protection. It is very attractive, but not practical.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. beautiful but fragile
- How accurate was the sizing? exact
I really liked these albums, I got four of them for my wife and she loves them. They are exactly as they appear on the site and are really neat to look at even without pictures in them. Some people complained about the size of them but for one, they give the dimensions of them and two, if they are made to hold one photo per page then they can't be but so big can they? Anyway the only negative is that they aren't packaged very well, all four of them came in a bubble wrap lined manila envelope with no other packing. Thankfully mine were not damaged but I can see it being a potential problem.
I was happy with the product. The photo book was natural looking and perfect for holding a few photos that you want to show off. My only issue was that the books arrived too late to give as Christmas gifts. I had placed the order with other items and they all arrived in time but not the two photo books- that was disappointing. Quality was exactly what I had expected and hoped for.
I bought this for a neighbor for christmas and she thought it was wonderful, even asked if I had purchased it at (blank), which is a high-end boutique in our area. I said "Nooo, OVERSTOCK.COM" and she was all excited that Overstock had the same items as this pricy-snooty-store!
This is a beautiful photo album! I have gotten so many compliments on it as it is so different. There were a few pages where it was a little hard to place the pictures in because the string/twine was a bit too tight, but otherwise all the pictures fit perfect. I will be purchasing more for gifts in the near future.
I ordered these photo albums as a Christmas gift for my employees. I was a bit hesitant, but I read all of the reviews and found such favorable comments, so I decided to take a chance. When the albums arrived, I was not disappointed. They are so unique and beautiful (and were a big hit when I handed them out). I'd recommend them to anyone.
