These are beautiful, crisp, and soft white (not bright white and no yellowish tint). The linen has a great texture and the lining is a quality sateen. The best thing about these drapes is the length. I was able to launder them--yes, I washed them on cold/hand washables cycle and briefly put them in the dryer on medium heat)--I don't understand why people don't wash new items. They shrank about 3 inches but came out looking fabulous. I did steam iron them and the wrinkles were easy to get out. I sewed drapery rings to them and hung them on a chunky rod high above the window, over bamboo blinds (from OS too) and they just skim the floor. These are as nice as RH belgian linen drapes and half the cost. I wish there were more colors available.
