For improved drape and to protect curtains from the effects of daylight and condensation at the window, we recommend that all curtains are lined.

Standard Lining

Our standard lining is a 52% polyester 48% cotton ivory lining with an easy-care finish to minimize creasing. This lining is used with all standard specification curtains and roman blinds.

Premier Twill Lining

Our premier twill lining is an ivory 30% cotton 70% polyester twill, with a crease resistant finish and offering a fantastic drape. This lining is standard with our Premier curtain making specification.

Luxury Satin

Our luxury satin lining is a heavier quality than our standard and premier twill linings. It is 50% cotton, 50% polyester with an easy care finish for a fantastic drape.

Thermal Lining

Our thermal lining is 100% polyester with a coating on one side. This gives it insulating properties which help to reduce heat loss from a window and also help conserve energy.

Blackout Lining

Our 3 pass blackout lining is 20% cotton 80% polyester with an acrylic back coating. It is suitable for most fabric types for both curtains and roman blinds. The ivory colour is used as standard; white is also available on request.

This lining will significantly reduce the amount of light coming through the window, though some light will still be visible around the edge of the curtain or blind. To minimise this effect, please ensure that your curtains (or roman blind) extend at least 10cm beyond each edge of the window. Blackout lining also has excellent thermal properties.

Bonded Interlining

Our bonded interlining has a 100% cotton face with a polyester fleece backing and gives any fabric a more luxurious drape. Interlining also has 'dim out' properties, reducing light compared to other linings (except blackout). It also has excellent thermal properties, retaining more heat than all other lining types.

Due the additional weight and thickness, we do not recommend bonded interlining for pencil pleat or pinch pleat curtain headings as it is difficult to create even pleats.
Curtain Express
