Honeycomb cells, made of woven polyester, pass through and filter the light a lot more than traditional Japanese paper shades do. Lighten up the room with full of light nicely. Pleasantly bright but nothing annoying. The quality of the product is better than ones we had before. Ones that we had before (different brand) was poorly made, but they were adjustable in length (just cut them to shorten); however, these are in the fixed length. Easy to install with a few to several screws (depends on the length of the product). Two of clear plastic lock down brackets are included so that you could temporarily lock the shades to the window sill or to the wall, depending on where you place them to lock the shade. If you choose to lock the shade by placing the brackets on the wall, the shade would nicely locked without any gap anywhere. However, if you choose to lock it by placing the brackets on the window sill, the shade will be a half an inch higher from the sill. Because these shades are cordless, just use two fingers to pinch a plastic tab (that will be installed at the bottom of the shade) and pull downward to expand or push upward to minimizing their height, very easily. Totally love them. Why 4 stars out of 5? I'd give them 5 stars, but all of these shades come with their top part wide open (i.e., without any sort of covering material so that these will collect dust, a lot of dust, over time). That's the only reason why I gave 4 stars for these great shades. I've been using them in a bedroom more than a month so far and I love them. I have to find a cover for them before they start to collect ton of dust in them.
