the process from choosing and purchase was easy. The items arrived in excellent condition and very neat and clean. The only thing that I found troublesome was that when feeding the cords through eyelets I had two incidents where the cord was severed. I think that this might be stopped by perhaps coating the cords, on completion of weaving the different colors, with a clear resign or like product. This would reduce any type of friction that could be caused from passing the cords through meal eyelets.
