I love the rich color (latte) and the pattern. They are not total light blocking, but are on the thicker side and the material is nice and soft and high quality. They seem well made and I expect them to hold up over time. I am personally not a huge fan of grommet curtains, but I liked the pattern and color of these enough to order them and give grommets a try. I am glad I did because they are beautiful curtains.
