Rated 1 out of 5 by jules plan to return item to store
I am generally very happy with my purchases from JCPenny , but I am extremely disappointed in this product. Very cheap looking. The material used feels like a shower curtain and is stiff to handle. The backing is made of a heavier plastic. I am sure its fine for the "thermal" part of it, but it is all cheap looking.
The plastic hardware and top runner is incredibly cheap. I plan to return them as soon as possible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OfficerBarbie Nice looking shade, pretty color.
I got the shades in grey. The color is nice. My complaint is about the plastic hardware that came with it. Very cheap, I wish it came with metal brackets. I have dogs that lift the shades and I am concerned about how long these will stay up with the cheap hardware. Other than that, they look pretty and up to date with todays fashion.

I really looked around for a roman shade in the green color I purchased. I do love the color and the fabric and the way it folds when the shade is pulled up. The only reason I did not give it a five rating is because I replaced other roman shades which had been hanging for several years and were finally showing wear and some discoloration. Those shades, however, came with metal hanging brackets which were quite sturdy. This shade came with plastic and the only thing that keeps the shade in the bracket is a tiny screw attached to a small little piece of plastic. The shades will stay pulled half way up my window because they are more decorative to me than functional. If I was one to raise and lower them all the time I would question their durability and wonder how long it would take for that little plastic piece to break off. For the price I would have preferred a more durable bracket for hanging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Diane The fabric and workmanship is very good.
I like these blinds very much. They fit my windows perfectly and I love the color and fabric. My only concern is for the quality of the hanging apparatus. It is not as good quality as the previous blinds I have had for many years and I worry that it may not hold up as well. Otherwise I love these insulated shades and they do a great job cutting down the heat that comes in during our hot summers..

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShadeShopper Nice shades, with some caveats...
Product Pros: Shade itself is made of sturdy material, blocks light and should provide thermal value. Installation was simple and completed with a Phillips screwdriver. Fabric side has nice linen weave look. Product cons: Fabric was described in catalog as polyester/linen, but lining actually has a heavier, plastic-like feel and needs coaxing to fold smoothly when raised. The cord stop on one shade does not hold both cords tightly, causing one end of shade to droop whenever it is raised. The other shade has pulled out of the hanging bracket several times while pulling the cord to raise the shade, requiring us to use one hand to support the header or risk breaking the bracket or clips. Hanging hardware is all plastic, am hoping it will hold up to operation of these heavy shades.

It is not stated in the description but the white backing is PVC, not a poly fabric, so it gives the blinds a stiff, plastic feel. They are very creased and stiff, so I'm hoping they'll loosen up after hanging for a couple of weeks. I ordered three of the shades in the "natural" color, two of them were darker, almost tan, and one was cream. Luckily I needed two in one room and one in another so I was able to separate them, but the quality control is not good. Also, the mounting brackets are plastic so I hope they don't break over time. That being said, the linen-like texture looks nice, the price was reasonable and they block the light well.
