John Lewis Cotton Rib Lined Pencil Pleat Curtains
Bought 2 pairs of these and the quality of the material was good, but found that in one pair one curtain was a couple of cm longer than the other which was very visible when they were hung. Disappointing for JL - returned and awaiting refund.

Well made with very good weight and hangability, creases from original packing quickly drop out. Easy to operate and create a good degree of blackout. Value for money and add to the comfort of the room. Very efficient delivery and ordering service.

Disappointed with Curtains
I must commend John Lewis on the Click and collect service it is excellent. I bought a grey pair of these curtains first and the colour was not right. I had ordered them on line and collected from a local Waitrose. I then ordered a white pair and took the grey ones back and collected the white ones all in 2 days.
My only complaint is the curtains! It was only after I had pulled up the tape and hung the curtains that I noticed a pull in the material which is about 6 inches long and it does show. Quite disappointed as I am usually so pleased with my purchases from John Lewis.

Excellent service and product
I saw these on display this Monday at Cheadle but they were discontinued, so the assistant rang round other stores and found the size I wanted at Aberdeen and so I ordered them. They arrived today, Thursday, and for this service I commend you. After I had ordered them I looked online at all the reviews and was dismayed to read quite a few negative comments, so I examined the curtains carefully before putting them up, and, true to John Lewis' reputation they are of excellent quality, hang well and look smart. Thank you.

Faded after 2 months
I am really disappointed with that the quality this product is not what it should be. The fabric is lovely and plain curtains like this are hard to find in a decent range of colours, but they have faded very quickly in the north of England and in autumn. I am about to return the second pair that have done this so it is not a one off. Taking down and returning large curtains is a complete hassle and waste of time. I am fed up John Lewis....you can do better.

I do realize that these curtains were not the most expensive, but there are certain things that I expect. In the first instance, the heading tape was very badly sewn onto the fabric, resulting in puckering. Lots of loose threads, and the lining hanging below the curtain. Not even what I would expect from the cheapest of stores. Not really good enough to be selling. The one positive was that JL refunded me, no quibble. All in all a very disappointing purchase.

I really like these curtains but they caused me so much trouble. I needed to shorten the curtain and the lining by 12 cms. I did not cut the curtains but shortened them by turning the curtain and the lining up by 12 cms. Having done this I noticed that the lining on one curtain was in a different position to the one on the other curtain, about 3cms higher. So I had to undo my sewing and realign the hem of the lining. I bought two pairs of these curtains so it was quite a time consuming job as both pairs were faulty lengths.

Very poor quality
Very thin despite being lined, and the weave is so irregular and loose that there are random horizontal lines across the fabric.
They will be returned a soon as possible.
John Lewis can do better than this.
