Your lining choice is an important part of your purchase. For a thick Roman blind that hangs beautifully, our recommendation is to choose an interlined blind if your budget stretches that far. Otherwise, the extra thick linings are the next best thing but at a lower price.
1. Single Layer Linings
Our standard single layer cotton lining will protect the fabric from sunlight damage and give some extra body to your blind.
A single layer thermal lining is similar to a plain cotton lining above but is coated with an insualting layer to offer extra thermal insulation.
A single layer blackout lining is similar to a plain cotton lining but it is coated with a blackout layer to keep the light out. It makes a good choice for a bedroom but it is a also a very good thermal insulator (better than the thermal lining above in fact) and protects your fabric from sun damage, so you get three perks for the price of one. Our blackout lining is white or ivory, not black.
2. Bonded Two Layer Linings
Extra thick thermal lining
Our extra thick thermal lining consists of a cotton lining bonded to a cotton wool-like middle lining. This double layer padded lining will help to keep the heat in and the cold out. Due to its extra weight, it also helps your blind hang well and look fuller, a major plus point considering the price. In our opinion, these are very good reasons to choose this lining. A lot of blind without having to splash out.
Extra thick blackout lining
Our extra thick blackout lining consists of a blackout cotton lining bonded to a cotton wool-like middle lining. This double layer padded lining will block out all light and help to keep the heat in and the cold out. Due to its extra weight, it also helps your blind hang well and look fuller, a major plus point considering the price. As with the extra thick thermal lining, in our opinion, this is a great buy and a good way to get a great pair of curtains without breaking the bank.
3.Two layer linings (loose, not bonded)
Interlined & lined
An interlined blind is a classic blind . The lining is made up of two layers, a standard lining (cotton, thermal or blackout as above) and a thicker cotton wool-like middle lining which is sandwiched between the main fabric and the back lining. This thick double lining is popular because it makes your blind look fuller and really helps it to hang beautifully. It has other benefits too such as keeping you really warm in winter, cutting out more light in the summer and providing fabric with extra protection against sun damage. The two layer lining can be heavy if you’ve used a heavy fabric as well – so make sure you have a strong pole or track in place. A more expensive option but, because of the way they look, the extra warmth and their longevity, a great choice of Roman blind for any room you spend a lot of time in or if you want your blind to last a very long time.
Interlined & thermal
As interlined & lined but with the added advantage of a thermal back lining for extra thermal insulation. A great choice for blinds in any room you spend a lot of time in especially drafty ones.
Interlined & blackout
As interlined & lined but with the added advantage of a blackout back lining to cut out early morning light and give the best possible thermal insulation. We consider this lining to be the best possible choice for your bedroom blinds .
Voiles and sheer fabrics are best left unlined so that the light can pass through them to give the desired light airy effect. We do not recommend this for any other type of fabric because the blinds would not hang well, offer any thermal insulation and the fabric would be exposed to direct sunlight.
Our experienced team can make any lining so, if you can't find what you're looking for on the website, please call us.

The safest and most efficient way of cleaning your curtains or blinds is to vacuum them in situ with a clean attachment. However you may feel that your curtains need a deep clean after several years, in which case our curtains are dry clean only. This process can shrink the fabrics by up to 3%. Our curtains or blinds should never go into a washing machine. Please note we take no responsibility for any shrinkage incurred should you wish to gently dry clean your curtains or blinds after a number of years.

We strive to deliver your fabric in the best possible condition. However, natural fabrics can crush easily, so there is a minor chance they could be slightly creased on arrival. We recommend you simply hang them up straight away and the creases will disappear before your eyes. Ironing the fabric could be damaging and ruin your curtains.
Natural fabrics can stretch over time, especially loose weave linens. This is hardly noticeable unless the length of your curtains or blinds is critical. The added length will ultimately depend on the fabric that you choose. If you have any concerns then please give us a call and we'll be happy to talk through your options with you.
Light Fastness and Fading
Our natural fabrics have varying degrees of light fastness depending on the range they are from. The best way to avoid fading and protect the colour of your fabric is to order a lined or interlined curtain.
