So as blackout curtains… not very good?

Yeah, kinda missing the whole point of blackout curtains.

Still, I’m surprised to see “blackout” curtains in Ukraine.
In my 7 months spent in Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine, I never saw blackout curtains in any of the homes, hostels, or apartments I visited or stayed in. I certainly would have loved to have had them, though.

Well, yeah, but at this point they are no longer blackout curtains but blackout-curtain-based art. And as such, pretty nifty, I’d say.
