Stunning, Made To Measure Curtains & Blinds



Our expert team of seamstresses create beautiful made-to-measure curtains & blinds from our collection of over 60 elegant country style fabrics. From sophisticated elegance to delightful country cottage styling, our range of handmade curtains and blinds are a stunning addition to any home.


1. Measure your windows



The first step to measuring for new curtains is to measure the length of pole you will need to hang them. We will then need to know how long you would like your curtains to hang. This is called the drop. Our soft furnishings team will use these measurements to calculate how much fabric you will need.

Fabric Selection

Silk Dupion


As a raw fabric, fading and deterioration may occur over time, especially in sunlight, so we do not recommend silk dupion for curtains and blinds or for lampshades placed in or near a window.

Please take a look at our lovely collection of
Faux Silks > 
which we have sourced for customers wanting the look and feel of pure silk in a more robust fabric.




We recommend that all silk curtains and blinds are lined and interlined to protect the face fabric but even then, fading and may occur over time especially in darker colours.

5. Unlined, Lined or Interlined?



All our made to measure curtains and blinds can be supplied with a variety of lining options depending on your requirements.

Interlined


Our recommended choice for stunning curtains– interlining with a soft extra layer of fabric within the curtain improves the drape and hang of the curtains, protects the fabric from harmful sunlight and provides insulation.

Lined


Choose from 3 neutral colourways. A blackout option is also available.

Unlined


Creates an airy effect; ideal for voiles or soft linens. Unlined curtains are a great way of gently shading a window whilst maintaining an element of natural light within the room.
