I really like this shower curtain. It's not plastic. It doesn't make that crinkly noise that plastic curtains make. I am using it along with a "decorative cover curtain" and it's a wonderful backdrop for that decorative shower curtain. We have children in and out of that bathtub and it's holding up really well with them pulling the shower curtain back the way kids do (not very gently). I'm going to get another one for our other bathroom!
