I wanted these to be contemporary and of sturdy material that I could use for my outdoor dining. The quality was disappointing and not like all the other orders I made with Overstock. In over 5 years I have never been disappointed with anything, but this product ws inferior. The edges were frayed and some placemats edges were not straight. Also, I wanted 12 placemats and the product is sold in sets of 6, so I ordered 2 sets. Only 1 set arrived and I was charged for 2 sets. Overall this was a 360 degree difference in past quality for products I purchased from Overstock and I believe they will make changes in the positive because they are working diligently and following up to correct the charge and made the return of the one set easy and at no charge to me.
