How much fabric do I need for curtains?

How do I clean my products?

We recommend that our fabrics are to be spot cleaned only. We recommend blotting away any liquids or stains and following up with cold water. If detergent is required, use a simple/mild detergent without optical brighteners.
To clean any of our products we recommend taking the brush attachment to your vacuum hose and vacuuming the curtains/blinds as it hangs – no need to take them down from the window. A gentle vacuum of the fabric should take care of most household dust.
All gold foil fabrics and pillow covers are not to be ironed. If you MUST iron, please cover the fabric with a sheet or a towel.
Do not wash with hot water, boil wash, bleach or soak with stain removers.
We do not advise that they be dry cleaned and will not take responsibility if they are damaged in the process.

Pillow Inserts

we recommend buying pillows an inch bigger than the pillow cover. Please be careful when inserting overstuffed insert as to not cause stress on the zipper and possibly pop the pillow seam.
