Pretty curtains, but if you are looking for true blackout curtains for shift work these will not do the trick. I am keeping them but will have to sew additional backing on to totally block out the light over the window area.They are very attractive so if the light is not an issue then I would highly recommend them. Have tabs and a pocket so can hang multiple ways. Backing is off white. I have the dark red curtains. Gave only a three because of the light coming through the curtain.
