The fringed burlap panels I received exceeded my expectations again. I had purchased them for my daughter in the ivory and was impressed with the quality, so I ordered a pair for myself in the natural color. I love that they are lined...absolutely beautiful!! Great value... Thank you Ballard!

The burlap panels look awesome with my new Tommy Bahama bedroom furniture and bedding. Even though it is burlap, somehow it compliments a tropical look

Rated 4 out of 5 by Serendipity Nice product
The product is nicely designed, the length options are very helpful and it's a great value proposition. A big plus is the lining, which protects the fabric and surrounding furnishings while allowing some light to filter. It works well for privacy purposes. This product would be difficult for a consumer who requires perfection. For example, the top hem and/or fringe bottom were not evenly stitched on some of the panels I purchased and had to exchange them. The nature of burlap is imperfect, however, there is beauty in these imperfections and, after installation, my drapes look amazing. I have received many compliments. The beauty of this product is in the bold textural contrast that it brings to any décor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fatedtodecorate I wanted so badly to like these
I was so excited to find these at such a great price, the sad thing is, they smell so bad, my daughter came downstairs and said "what smells so bad" when i opened the first package. I figured I could leave them outside for a while...but the negative aspects piled up, they are dusty, the fibers shed, I was coughing as I opened them and the floors were littered with dust from them.
Also they are very bulky and stiff, so they don't move well on the rods, so if you are going to be opening and closing them they might not be a good choice.
So these are going back.

This is my second pair of the burlap fringed panels. I bought this pair in the longer length to add more coverage to the windows in our main living area. The white backing blocks more light and cuts the glare on the tv screen in that room. Solid product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jksjkc Better quality in person
Not sure why these appear so thin in the ad photo. They are lined and not see through as shown. They are not room darkening but they are definitely lined. Difficult to steam which was frustrating because I purchased the 108" panels but all in all a good purchase for the price. The fringe is a very nice added touch. Color is true to burlap color, a warm dark tan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by playing4pizza The color lot varys
The drape is a very impressive texture and good quality. The problem is I already had 2 panels and added a third and the third panel has more yellow color than the ivory in the other 2 panels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Savvyshopper2 Adds great texture ~ practical for privacy
Love the look of these curtains!! Highly recommend.* Very nice quality, adds texture and are great for privacy since they are lined. I use them inside on either side of my glass panel front door, tying them back with decorative cords during the day ~ then at night, close them for privacy. They cover the glass sidelights and glass panel front door perfectly. I use copper piping as our curtain rod. The look is fabulous.* I will purchase more for other rooms in our home.

by SkiChateau NO!!!
I purchased 7 of these panels in large part due to the universal adoration written in the reviews. Usually when a product deviates substantially from the posted description you will see it in the reviews. I was confident I would love these.
My first thought upon opening the box was, "Oh no, they sent me the burlap color. I ordered ivory." Checked the packaging - nope, they sent me ivory alright.
Now, I didn't expect a bleached white at all, I knew they would be off white. But none of the reviews on the first several pages (no, I didn't read all 220 reviews) mentioned that these are tan, not white at all.
The curtains are lovely but I do feel that the photos published in the description are extremely misleading which is why I am giving this product only 2 stars. My design calls for a much whiter product. I have a whole room design coming together (fabrics, drapes, bamboo blinds, rugs, furniture, lighting) and I will have to wait until some of the other elements of my design arrive before I decide if these are going back. If they do, I wasted $45 on outbound shipping plus whatever it costs to return them (maybe another $25?). At $70 for shipping alone, it was an expensive mistake.
I am going to upload photos so that anyone else considering these has a more accurate depiction of the color. If tan is your target color - you will love the ivory color. If not buy something else!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by stylish inexpensive and attractive
The regular burlap holds its color far better than the ivory burlap (available without the fringe.) I hung them both a little over a year ago and am happy to say that this one looks great. The fringe adds a fun element which spiffs up the look of the curtain. Easy to iron and looks good. I don't recommend the ivory, as it fades terribly and leaves a resulting "ombre" effect which is quite unattractive. Since I initially gave them a good review, I can't go back and change it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockymtnlisa Surprisingly nice find!
I ordered the curtains to give them a try, but I wasn't certain that burlap with fringe was going to work in our simple, ecclectic home. As it turns out they add a lovely layer of texture. The burlap sheds a bit when you unpack the curtains, but I haven't noticed further issues with that. The curtains hang beautifully. As mentioned in previous reviews, while lined with thin white fabric, they also manage to filter light just as shown in the photos. The fabric has enough texture to drape nicely with ropes/knobs, but we just have them hanging at the sides of our windows. The color is also a tad bit warmer than pictured on my monitor which was a good thing for our home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peggy4 much nicer than photos
These curtains are very well made and look quite substantial. I am very pleased with them, and have encouraged a client to use them in her home as well. I was impressed that there is a nice liner in them which makes them look more expensive. They are still a bit see-through, but I will also have a shade on my windows to keep out light when needed. For the price, I feel they are an excellent, stylish buy.

These curtains are so well made. After steaming them, they hang perfectly and have made a nice touch in our home. It was nice to get them during the 30% off sale,too. The fringe adds just enough detail to soften the burlap look with a contemporary feel. Thanks, Ballard!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cathyp Still love them
I love the curtains, but the sizes are not accurate. I'm getting rings so they will hang a little closer to the floor. I would have preferred them without the rings. I would still recommend the product but I think you should make your customers aware that the length isn't always accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shellz Curtains are the perfect look I was looking for
Curtains are beautiful. The only other commemt I have is I ordered 84 inch curtains. We measured carefully, drilled and hung the curtains only to discover the curtains were only actually 82 inches long. We had to patch and paint the wall and rehang. The end result is beautiful. Just wish they were in fact 84 inches long

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryp123 Excellent drapes
I wanted a more natural/coastal type look for my dining room. It has only one window. The room is very open to the living room and the kitchen. These drapes complement my dark wood dining table and rattan chairs perfectly. They have a substantial white backing which gives the drapes a little weight and good light blocking. On another window I have pale blue silk drapes. The colors flow well but the window helps set the dining room as it's own space . I just love them. The fringe is nice too. I used my steamer to eliminate the wrinkles and this worked well.

I always look at Ballard when I need something special and was lucky to find the burlap draperies with lining. They are very good quality, the burlap is smooth, with a nice weave, not too open or irregular and the lining makes them hang well. Plus, they were a great value on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CampCO Bought them twice
I bought these curtains for our master bedroom and searched for months for something different that I like as much for our great room. Finally decided to purchase these same ones again. The reviews talk about the strong burlap smell - which I noticed with first purchase. Hung this new set in garage to air out for a day and it did the trick.

I had been looking for the final touch to my living space and couldn't find the perfect curtains. I purchased these hoping they would work and they are absolutely perfect. The feel and look is exactly burlap. Easy to steam out the wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adoptagreyhound Rustic casual
These curtains were purchased for my family room and they look great. The room has a leather loveseat and matching chair and ottoman with an antique armoire. I wanted a casual look - kind of English pub and cozy with the fireplace - and the burlap adds to the somewhat rustic feel I was looking for in that room in my otherwise very feminine house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Epona Fringed Burlap Panel
The burlap panels are beautifully made, lightly lined, and give depth and texture to the room. The fringe details on the bottom are a dressy touch. They do have the good 'ole burlap smell at first, but that goes away as they air out. Over all, a healthy five stars and my Mom liked them so much that she ordered a set for her bedroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Capers1884 Not good for windows that get a lot of sun
I have the ivory color curtains in a bay window and another window in the front of our house which get a lot of sun. After about 2 years, the drapes have turned colors in the area that is closest to the window. They have turned a burnt orangish gold color. They looked great at first but now I would not buy them again.

I wasn't sure I would like these, but they are really cute. Beautiful texture and the fringe at the bottom really adds to the look. They're casual, yet somehow elegant at the same time.
