The Advantages of Custom Drapery & Curtains

Often we are asked why a person should choose a quality custom drapery over those offered at large discount retailers?

The following are just a few reasons to choose an American Made quality custom drapery over store bought:

The lining can make the difference. The numerous factors that make custom window treatments an exceptional value cannot always simply be seen with the eye. Custom draperies are typically lined increasing the insulation factor and making them more durable and substantially longer-lasting up to 15-20 years. Some store bought drapes do come with lining, but most are lined with an extremely thin imported fabric and will not insulate as well or last as long.

Custom draperies are made to your specific size and requirements. Store bought window treatments are designed for the masses and it is often difficult to find the exact style, color and size needed forcing you to settle with something that doesn’t necessarily match your specific needs. We offer over 20 different classic and modern styles in over a hundred fabrics giving you never-ending options and you also have the benefit of receiving free fabric samples so you can assure that the color of the fabric is a perfect match.

Custom draperies are an intelligent investment. The average person keeps their custom drapery more than 7 years; whereas store bought one’s typically need to be replaced every two years. In actuality our custom, lined drapes will last a lifetime and we stand by that fact with a "Lifetime Warranty" that guarantees your drape will be free from defects due to faulty workmanship or materials forever.

The most important reason custom drapery and curtains are better than store bought one’s is simply the value. Purchasing directly from our factory allows you to cut out the middle-man for enormous savings off retail. You will save hundreds of dollars off retail custom drapes. In addition, we have a 10 day turnaround on all orders meaning you won’t have to wait the 8 to 10 weeks it takes other companies.

Our family and numerous long time employees take great pride in furnishing our customers with outstanding well made products. When it comes to quality and value, we truly believe you cannot find any better drapes than the ones we literally “hand craft” here in America.

Here are a couple of testimonials from satisfied customers . . . 

"I received the blackout drapes within 10 days of placing the order. Today I hung them and to say I was impressed is an understatement. They fit perfectly the length was exactly as ordered as was the width. The materials and workmanship are supurb and of high quality. These replaced a custom set designed by an expert and far outshine the old drapes. Thanks for a great product! We will use your services again."

- James

"I received my drapes early this week and they are exactly what I had envisioned. I was very impressed with the quality of service that you provided. The product and shipping were also excellent. I will be sure to refer your company to all of my friends and family in the future. Thanks again for all of your patience."

- Susan

"I ordered thru the internet to save money,but I expected to have to do a lot of work as a result, steaming, etc to get them to look professional. I was wrong. The sheers came beautifully folded, ready to hang, and they went up one, two, three. I'm very impressed. Thank you!"

Rest assured I will be telling all my friends about the value they can find by shopping with you. I am the first one to complain when I am dissappointed - after all I am a grouchy old man but....I pride myself in also passing on praise when it is deserved."

Cleaning and Caring for Your Draperies!

Cleaning drapes correctly will add life. Neglecting them will only cost you more money in the end. Here are a few tips we would recommend. Inspect the back fabric; you are looking at the back of your drapes for sun rot. This deterioration of the fabric is caused by intense and frequent sun exposure and extreme heat. Natural fibers, like silk, tend to fade and sun rot quicker than man-made fabrics. Dust frequently with a vacuum attachment on the lowest setting to remove topical dirt and bacteria. Here are the different fabric contents and their processes for cleaning.

Cotton/Rayon draperies combination fabrics should always be dry-cleaned and never washed. The primary drawback of cotton is that it sometimes has a tendency to shrink when cleaned.

Cotton/Polyester draperies tend to be the most durable of all of the blends. This fabric cleans very well and resists shrinking. Dry cleaning is recommended when cleaning poly/cotton blend fabrics.

Self-lined draperies provide excellent insulation, privacy, and durability at a relatively modest price. Be sure to start by only purchasing self-lined draperies with cotton suede backings because of their superior durability. These draperies do require some special attention when dry cleaned. However, they certainly have been cleaned successfully by dry cleaners for many years. Talk to your cleaner to find out what care they take in cleaning draperies with self-lined backing.

Inherently Fire Proof/Flame Retardant draperies are made so that the fiber itself will not sustain or continue to flame. These fabrics should be constructed with a mod-acrylic material built into the fibers. The fire retardant feature will not change, stop working or wash out because of dry cleaning.
