I wanted lightweight drapes to go over blinds. And I didn't want plain, flat looking polyester. I got these primarily for the color, which I love (I forget the name, but they're neutral) and the price, which was reasonable. But my surprise was the texture of the fabric, which I couldn't really tell from the photo. It' s a woven, sheer fabric that is anything but plain looking. They look awesome in front of white blinds.
was expecting a smooth texture
Very nice for a simple window sheer. The quality is very nice. Much better than others I have pruchased from the other brands I have pruchased from in the jpast.
