I decided to give these red silk envelopes a try on a whim, honestly. They looked cute and my sister is planning an Asian themed wedding, so I thought she might like them or at least get an idea or two from them. My hope was that these envelopes might give her a spark of inspiration to help with her wedding planning. The product arrived undamaged in plastic sleeves, 2 of the envelopes in each pack. It was a bit inefficient in terms of the packaging, but it worked well enough.
Two of the envelopes have an opening along the narrow side and two of the envelopes have the opening along the long side. It was a bit surprising to me that, when ordering four envelopes, they have 2 different types of envelope instead of each being the same type. The envelopes are red and silk, with delicate designs in gold thread. The design on each envelope is different, so I would not get these if you are going for uniformity but each of the designs are whimsical and beautiful. The material is thick and well built, I did not have any concerns that the envelopes would hold up. The envelopes are a good size to hold cash, gift cards, or even smaller gifts like a piece of jewelry.
Overall, I would rate these envelopes with a 4 out of 5 stars. They are a great size and they are very beautiful. It is $12.99 for only four envelopes, which is a bit steep for what is essentially an envelope, but it is worth the cost because they are great quality and lovely! I am going to show them to my sister sometime soon and I hope she will really like them! The only slight drawback that I could find in these is that the advertising is unclear. While the advertisement does show two vertical and two horizontal envelopes, it could be unclear you are ordering two of each instead of just four of one kind if you don’t look at each picture in the advertisement.
