I ordered these in the smoke color based on the look online. When they arrived, I was surprised by the texture and contrast in the fabric. The color is not as uniform as it is in the photos - they have almost a space dye effect of light and dark gray. I would describe the fabric as more of a textured chenille than a velvet. The smoke gray has just a hint of blue to it. They do have a cozy casual look and seem like they would be effective in blocking the light. But with the space dyed look, they don't work for me. Target made returning easy and I opted to ship the return back.
Okay, design wise these are beautiful curtains and absolutely love the way they look in my room, however they are absolutely NOT blackout curtains. I would say they’re more of room darkening curtains. Light def still gets in. But besides that they’re gorgeous.
First, the bad news. These are neither velvet nor chenille. I’m not sure the makers are even aware of what those words mean. The fabric is a flat weave, medium heavy material such as you might make a sweatshirt out of.
The good news: they work really well for blocking light, and they don’t look too bad. I got the Smoke color and the grey was about the color I was looking for. I wish this company made a matching valance or blackout curtains with a top ruffle, because we’re still getting a lot of light spill at the top of the window, but I think we’ll just end up moving the curtain rod up a few inches.
So, aside from being disappointed that these were not anything even close to velvet, I’m pleased with the purchase. Not sure I would buy it again, though.
These are ACTUAL BLACKOUT curtains. I have a street light 10 feet form my bedroom window and am light sensitive when I sleep. These block out all of the light and make my bedroom "hotel dark." I like that it is a fabric backing and not plastic. Yes, the backing material is actually black. You cannot see this through the ivory. The ivory does indeed have some silver metallic threading, which you can see when you hold it in your hand, but from 3ft. + away it just makes the curtain look textured. Word to the wise - do NOT put them in the dryer. They will shrink up about 3 inches. Found that out the hard way with the second pair I bought (I loved them so much I bought for another room.) The first I let air dry out in my backyard and was rushed on the second pair. I will say the texture is more cotton with a more stiff metallic running through it but I would not call it velvet or chenille.
