Blind & Curtain Linings – Sample Pack



We offer Curtain linings that are washable and low VOC.

We can send you samples of the 3 main natural curtain linings we use: 

  1. Woven Dimout
  2. Unbleached Cotton Bumph
  3. Hemp Twill

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.

Our custom made stock is Oeko-Tex & ISO 14001 certified.

Unbleached Cotton Bumph 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 and we pre-wash it for you, so it won’t shrink when you come to wash your curtains.  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.

Hemp Twill

This is the most natural curtain lining we have.  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.

Also available separately

The following fabrics are not included in the standard lining pack. Please make a special request in the notes at the checkout, if you would like us to include samples.

Organic Cotton Calico

Our Calico is GOTS certified, so you can be assured that it is truly organic.  We usually avoid using pure cotton for curtain lining as New Zealand’s sunlight is pretty harsh on cottons, and it may start shredding. But occasionally it is used for those with chemical sensitivities.

100% Blockout

Unfortunately, anything that offers 100% Blockout, means it’s a coated fabric, and completely unrecyclable at the end of its life. Our current stocks are made from 100% post-consumer recycled yarn, with an acrylic coating. It is not Low VOC! So best to avoid if you are concerned about off-gassing or have chemical sensitives. 

Lightweight Curtain Lining – Danemarca

Made from Polyester and conventional cotton, this lining is a low cost alternative to our Hemp Twill. 

This is an industry standard uncoated lining left over from a couple of custom jobs. Due to its conventional natural cotton and polyester mix, we don’t usually recommend a blend like this. But it can easily be washed when made as a detachable lining. Plus it won’t require loads of ironing.
