I've bought and returned at least 5 sets of drapes due to them being the wrong color, hue or texture. These are simply PERFECT! They have a nice sheen without being shiny. They are the color of pure cream with a nice nubby texture characteristic of dupioni silk. They hang soooo beautifully. Well worth the money! So well made-they look VERY classy. My couch is cream so they give the whole room an elegantly classy feel. They did have a slight chemical-like odor out of the package but it seems to have dissipated. I hung them on hooks on a heavy-duty, oil-rubbed bronze rod. I'm VERY happy. I do NOT have a flare for decorating and Overstock has been very patient with my ill-made choices resulting in returns. I will always, always shop here.
