Curtain lining Samples
We offer Curtain linings that are washable and low VOC.
We can send you a range of the 4 main curtain linings we use;
Woven Dimout Lining
This lining is great for diming out street lights or sunlight. It is made from 100% Polyester. Not an ideal fabric in our book, but it is the only one we have found to date, that is easily washable and can provide both dimout and thermal properties without smelling like some chemical lab. Being 100% Polyester it is not a mixed fibre, so at the end of its life, it should be easy to recycle. We recommend making a detachable lining using this, so you easily remove and clean yourself in the washing machine.
Cotton Bumf Interlining
This is an interline that sits in between the front fabric, and the lining. It is perfect for windows that are single glazed as it provides an extra layer of insulation. This is made from an unbleached cotton. We are still on the search for an organic version. But until we find one, this unbleached doesn’t off-gas like some of the white bleached ones we have come across. We are now offering a pre-washed pre-shrunk Bumf, so it won’t shrink when you come to wash your curtains.
This is the most natural lining we have. It was grown and woven under organic conditions. It is washable, in fact it has been pre-shrunk here in NZ. The thicker twill weave helps dissipate the light, to protect the face fabric on your curtains. And in our opinion Hemp is the best fibre there is. It takes 4-5 months to grow, doesn’t require any pesticides or synthetic fertilisers, needs minimal irrigation, and absorbs more carbon per hectare than a pine forest. It is naturally mould, mildew and UV resistant.

Low VOC Blockout
This is a 100% Blockout lining made from a mixed fibre of a Polyester base and an acrylic coating. This is coated here in NZ with a non-toxic, low VOC coating. So it doesn’t give off the same chemical smell like other blackouts. If blocking out the light is your main priority this is the one for you. This one can be very carefully handwashed and laid completely flat to dry.
