Rated 1 out of 5 by nevisnice just say no to anthropologie kitchen curtains!!
Let me start by saying that Anthro does beautiful living room/bedroom curtains; I have two sets in my apt already and absolutely love them. But, alas they can not do kitchen curtains. The picture does NOT match what you actually get and the total cost of the set is prohibitively expensive for kitchen curtains (eighty-eight dollars/panel + forty-eight dollars for the valance. Do the math). I bought one panel, and it was much too heavy and wide to fit on the tension rod. It almost seemed like they took the original version of these curtains and chopped it down, because you don't need a 50" wide kitchen curtain panel. The effect made the curtains actually look cheap-ish, like someone sewed beautiful medallion designs on heavy burlap material. Also annoyed that it was lined. Kitchen curtains are supposed to be airy and light, not bedroom light-blocking heavy. I ended up buying some cheap dept store curtains which look so much cuter than these. Sorry Anthro, these are definitely going back (but I still love your store!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by sara7bella Well-made and lovely!
I do agree with the previous reviewer that this curtain is not airy (in case you're looking for kitchen curtains that let lots of light in). But I used this for my bathroom, not the kitchen, so I was looking for something that provided privacy. This curtain works well for my purposes.
The fabric is substantial and high-quality. It is lined, and you can tell just by feeling it that this is a quality window treatment. The embroidery is lovely... somewhat subtle since it's so close in color to the fabric, but it adds that extra something special.
The color is definitely a creamy ivory color, not white. The material has small (very subtle) little flecks of brown that give it a natural quality... kind of like how handmade paper has those flecks... but they're not as obvious w/ the curtain (so don't let that scare you off). If you're looking for curtains this length, but don't need an airy & light feel, this is a good choice.
