You’re also able to send an order without payment if you want to and we will verify it for you and contact you before putting it into action.

With bag-lined the lining is simply stitched onto the curtain fabric and inverted. Although a more affordable method, it allows the edges to ‘roll’.

Blind hemming

With blind hemming, the lining is stitched to the curtain fabric and the seam is also part of the back of the curtain cloth about five centimetres in from the edge. This is done by carefully loosening some of the threads at the back of the material so the stitching is virtually invisible on the face. It offers a much cleaner appearance and in our view the curtains hang better. When comparing our products with what others call 'made-to-measure', you should be certain to double-check this point.

Curtain "fullness"

Fullness is the number of widths of fabric that will be used for the width of your track or rail. Opinions differ in the trade for any given track size, but of course it will make a lot of difference to the price. Always make sure you know how many widths of curtains you are being given quotes for when comparing prices.

With so many being unbranded it is hard to see whether you are getting value for what you pay. What is important however is the final price of the curtain. So we have put our costs in price groups so that the only price that matters is the end product.
