Rated 1 out of 5 by LessonLearned Never Again! Cheaply made; poor manufacturing!
The multi-colors in these curtains were perfect, so I took a chance on buying them. Being on sale, they were lots less expensive than I had paid for curtains in the past, so I thought I may have found a deal...in spite of them not having a lining, which meant I'd have to now shop for sheers elsewhere. Being my first curtains without a lining, in hindsight, seems I wasn't aware of the price of nice sheers. Anyway, this was my first curtain purchase from Kirkland's.
I first purchased three pairs of these curtains in the store. But, due to pattern of panels within curtain pack not matching up (pattern repeat off), I ended up ordering three more sets online, attempting to get curtain panels where the pattern repeat lined up properly. It was a nightmare!
While being manufactured, the sewing was not kept straight within the patterned design. Meaning, the rectangular panel must have been cut crooked (downhill) to begin with. For example: The pattern on the left panel side would start at the top of a specific colored, specific sized oval loop within the design, but then go downhill, ending an inch or more off by the time it ended on the right side of the panel. UGH! Then, to make things worse...the other panel within the curtain pack would start at a completely different spot (i.e. farther down on that same specific color's multi-sized oval loop design). Frustrated and not wanting to continue curtain shopping, I ended up keeping four pairs, returned two.
When ironing the eight panels, I noticed several smeared black stains (maybe black grease during manufacturing) on a few panels. Fearing if I washed them they may fall apart because they were so cheaply made, I applied stain remover with a soft toothbrush to the first stain. But, it wasn't coming out and the woven lines in the fabric were getting messed up, so I stopped. At that point, I no longer cared...I put them up anyway, hoping the black marks would be concealed by the folds in the curtains.
I don't know how long I will keep them up before replacing them. Having sheers to go with them, they are usually left open..when closed you can really notice the pattern design is off.
In the future, I will go back to purchasing curtains from larger stores (JCPenney; BB&B), where I have never had a problem in 35 years. I figure, you get what you pay for.
If you don't mind unlined curtains, I would suggest you stick to a solid, non-pattern one if shopping at Kirkland's. Then, you might not experience the frustration and disappointment I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loulal True to color, well made
The curtains are true to color and are heavy enough to not allow light to come through. Very happy with the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrownMama2 Great price and FABULOUS quality.
I got these curtains when they were on sale and was super excited to hang them up. My window is very large and sun comes right through. I needed another set and went back to get one more. They fit so lovely and look amazing. For 34.95 I got a pair, that is such a steal for the quality. I am going back to get curtains for the rest of my house and would pay full price for how wonderful they are and look.
Kirkland doesn't disappoint!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lilchina great buy
Great price, nice colors... I just hate that they flare out a little at the bottom.... after ironing them &putting creases in the curtains the flaring was less noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzanne06 Absolutely beautiful curtains! Great quality at a great price!
These curtains are beautiful and have really transformed the look of my family room! I would recommend them to anyone interested! If you are looking for a curtain that is lined on the back so you can't see the design from outside then these are not the curtains for you. I have these hung in my family room windows which are in the back of my home, therefore that was not an issue for me. The colors are so bright and have really given my family room so much life! Love them!
