As a passionate curtain maker I always find myself secretly inspecting roman blinds, curtains and anything else that is a soft furnishing. If I'm in a restaurant or hotel, I simply cannot resist investigating the stitching, quality of the linings and so on! I think I am the biggest critic of roman blinds.
In my opinion, a beautifully made, built to last roman blind should have the following qualities:
1. Interlining to ensure the face fabric is protected from the elements.
2. Interlining to provide the blind with superior fold quality.
Interlining helps create beautiful soft folds.
3. The rod pockets should be part of the lining.
Rod pockets are skillfully sewn into the lining on the back of the blind.
4. No machining ANYWHERE on the front of the blind.
Hand stitched roman blind with no machining to the front.
5. A high quality roman blind system
A sturdy and compliant blind system.
A high quality blind system ensures the smooth operation of your roman blind. It is also vital that the system complies with current child safety regulations.
One of the biggest compliments I received from a recent customer was her following statement: "Since you have made my lovely roman blinds I have become a total blind snob. I can now spot the difference between a well made roman blind and an inferior one."
