I have the curtain on my terrace bought at the risk that it will wear out quickly because the curtain is exposed to all weather conditions. But it is very robust. Despite the rain, he still looks great, the wood is not swollen or the same. He hangs freely between terrace and staircase, downwards, the strands are slightly narrower so that it is not entirely opaque, but it is sufficient to protect something. I am totally satisfied with the product, fast delivery, good quality.
