John Lewis Marlow Check Lined Pencil Pleat Curtains, Cornflower
Have just bought 2 pairs to hang on the same wall. Unfortunately the top of the curtains of each pair start at different places in the pattern! And one set are 1/4" out. As they have horizontal stripes it would look awful. Very poorly made. Not what I expect from John Lewis. Just awful. Shoddy. Now I have to take heavy curtains back.

Pleased with the speed of delivery and the curtains are lovely and very good quality. They look gorgeous in the bedroom of our country cottage but would look great in a contemporary style home too.

finally pleased with them
I had to return 3 pairs of these curtains to the shop - luckily I live within 15 miles of two stores. The first pair had two lots of red thread woven into them on one curtain, the second pair were checked for red threads in the shop and i returned home happy with them, ironed them, pulled the thread on one of the curtains hung it up then pulled the thread on the second curtain only to find the heading tape wasnt attached all the way across the curtain. They had to go back, I then checked a third pair in the store before buying the fourth pair, even the assistant was surprised by the amount of 'slubs' in the material on the 4th pair.
I'm happy now though. However, a set of Magic Tree curtains I purchased has a red thread sewn into them #on the inside luckily# and a set of blue checkered curtains I bought, ironed and hung had to come down and go back to be exchanged because the lining on one curtain was too short and so the bottom edges turned up and wouldnt sit flat...... I had a lot of bother with ALL three pairs but now i'm quite happy.

Curtains Did Not Match!
These curtains have horizontal bands of light and dark colour.
Of the pair delivered to me one had a light top and the other a dark top!
I exchanged them for a second,satisfactory pair. Newly-decorated bedroom was therefore late in being commissioned.

I loved these curtains when I bought them although, as I bought them on online, the fabric wasn't quite what I was expecting. However, I have recently had them dry cleaned, and what a disappointment. I had to sign a shrinkage disclaimer, even though JL explicitly state they should only be dry cleaned. Now I know why. The curtain fabric has shrunk but the lining hasn't, so they look tacky and I will have to turn up the lining. If I was any good at this, I would have made them in the first place! The quality of the fabric has altered too, as they seem to have lost all their 'stuffing' and the cotton is soft and floppy. Shame, as I have just decorated the kitchen to pick out their colours!

The fact these were out of stock when I first saw them says it all!! The wait was worth it. They are a good quality curtain for our guest bedroom. Love them!

highly satisfying product
Look expertly made and finished. Hang beautifully. Fabric is easy to match other accessories with. Am delighted with the curtains.

Quality curtains at a reasonable price
These curtains are bright and cheerful and suitable for our spare bedroom. Taking into account the price they are well made and the tapes are easily drawn to form the pleats.
