Story Behind the Art:
The fabric of these curtains are weaved on a hand-loom in a small rural village in India and then hand-dyed. The artisans are a group of young hand- crafters who have moved from small villages to a big town in Central India and make various home decor items out of these exotic sari fabrics. This gives these wonderful artisans a way to have sustainable income via selling to the worldwide market on the internet. Your purchase supports local and home-based work where the artisans can easily tend to their families and pass these time-honored skills from one generation to the next.
How to measure for Curtains
Top Style: Pole Tops (Rod Pocket), Tab Tops and Ring Tops Use a steel measuring tape - cloth tapes are not accurate. Take exact measurements - round down to the nearest of an Inch as we do not make fractions of an Inch. On your notes, clearly indicate which measurement is the width and which is the length. It is very common to transpose measurements.
Measuring Width The width specified is always for 1 curtain. For example if the specified width is 44 Inches and the unit of sale is a pair (2 curtains), then you would get 2 curtains each measuring 44 Inches.
To arrive at the proper width of your window, measure from the outside of the molding (not the glass), unless window treatment is inside molding. Fullness should be 1 1/2 - 2 times this measurement, depending on the style of curtain and personal taste.
Measuring Length To arrive at the proper length for your curtain, measure from the top of molding (not the glass), or top of the curtain rod, if rods are already in place, to the point where you want the bottom of your curtain to be.
