These curtains are a soft velvet and hang beautifully. They insulate well against drafts and block light 100%. The color is a little darker than it appeared on my screen, but it works very well with earth tones.
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.
