The curtain is very old fashioned looking and extremely heavy. You have to use a very secure bracket and/or rod to hang it or it will weigh the rod down, tearing the brakets right out of the wall, just as mine did when I was attempting to see what it would look like. It is also a dust magnet and I imagine dog/cat hair collector and will have to be vacuumed every day so it doesn't turn into a panel of dust. If you're looking for thermal and/or room darkening, this will be perfect for you.
I absolutely love these curtains. I got the charcoal color and they were exactly the tone I was looking for. The material is heavy and luxurious and provided the perfect finishing touch to our wide dining room windows. The price is also a great value considering that these are extra wide curtains.
When I purchased the extra wide curtains for my door I had also purchased 50" ones for the windows which came with the belt loop hanging option (but just to be clear on the packaging it stated that the hanging option for these curtains both the extra wide 100" and 50" curtains had pole pocket and hook belt option I just thought that meant the belt loop which I later found out what the difference was). At the time I assumed that was called hook belt which would be an option for the extra wide curtain but it did not have the belt loop option. I liked how the belt loop looked so I did return these and purchased 4 of the 50" wide curtains so I could hang them with the belt loop. These curtains are still nice and looked good but they just did not work for the look that I wanted. big learning lesson for me in the lingo of curtain hanging.
