We use Hanes lining. Lining protects the fabric from sunlight, gives the curtain panel extra fullness.

Our blackout is also from Hanes. It blocks 95-98% of light, it also provides the protection to the fabric and it reduces some of the noise.

Our flannel interlining, it is the most important part on a curtain panel or Roman Shade, because it gives body to the panel or shade.

The widths of all the fabrics we use are 54”.

The width of a finished panel is 48” for rod pocket or flat.  For pleated panels, the end width will be 26”. To make wider panels we sew the widths together that we need to create the desired finished width.
