I don't get new stuff often, but I have really been searching for drapes. Our windows are soooo boring and I feel like they could liven up the apartment. I just couldn't find any fabric that I really loved. That was until I got these samples from Insta Linen. I think one of these could be the one!
They sent quite a few, but I have to say that the Egyptian Black #1 is my favorite out of all of them. I love the sheer look of it. It is sheer but actually has nice coverage and I have to say the fabric feels and looks amazing. When I look over, I have to say that I could really see this fabric hanging from my window.
They also sent an Italy, Red #2. It is red of course and a bit sheer. Not as sheer as the egyptian, but sheer enough. The feel of it is nice and I have to say, this would probably make a good table cloth or table runner. If you like red though, it would look really nice around a window!
The Irish, Royal Blue 10, is a lot like the Italy. It isn't as sheer, but it is a truly nice color that would look great as a variety of different items. You can see all the threads and it really is made very well, I have to say it is really nice fabric!
Belgian, Green 6, is a bit of a weird color. It is a very light green and it just isn't for me. But it is made really well and the look is very similar to Italy and Irish. Even though it isn't my thing, I think it would look amazing in someone's home.
Last but not least is, Brazil, chocolate brown #5. This looks just like the name suggests. It is a very dark brown, just like a Hershey bar. It is the thickest of all the samples they sent. If you want a fabric that will block out the light, then this one would be perfect as curtains!
All in all, I really love this fabric. It looks really great and I know what I would do with each and every type. They also come in different colors as well. Head on over and check out their website, www.instalinen.com. From there, you can see all the different fabrics and colors that they offer and order your favorite! They even send sample swatches, so you can see it and feel it in person before you buy!
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
