I’ve been on the lookout for pvc free and polyester free blackout curtains for a long time. The conventional blackout has so many chemicals the smell makes me nauseous. The texture and colors of this organic blackout curtain are stunning and the handmade macrame rings are simply beautiful. My corner bedroom’s windows face southeast and this curtain provides a total blackout. I’ve washed my curtain once on very gentle cycle and hung it to dry. No problems. Wonderful product thank you.
