How to Recognize Linen Curtains

There are lots of different options for dressing windows these days. From different shades to drapery panels, there is something for everyone and every style of interior. Linen curtains create a classic look to any space. Whether they are pure linen, or blended with cotton, they have a soft and naturally textured look. Linen is made from flax fibers and is a very durable fabric.

Linen curtains can be lined to create a black out curtain if required, or left to create a sheer drapery panel to highlight the beautiful texture of the material.

Linen Curtains Fun Facts:

As a fabric, linen has been around since at least 3,000 BC! With it originating from Egypt, it was an extremely popular choice due to its ability to keep cool and fresh in warm weather. Back then it was mainly used as fabric for clothing. The process of making linen was intense and laborious, and therefore only the rich could afford to wear them.

Nowadays, linen is commonly used for clothing, as fabric, and window treatments! The weave-like texture gives linen an organic and natural quality to it, which helps to diversify a space.
