The picture was misleading for me. They are not actual color blocked stripes. The "stripes" are actually changes in the density of the weave of the fabric. The fabric itself is course rough and very casual. Additionally, they are not ideal for light reduction. I returned them for the amount of light they allowed and primarily because I was expecting a more sophisticated and luxurious fabric (in no way would I consider them luxurious).
