Curtains are woven from delicate fibers and are often decorated with intricate patterns and added decorations in the form of sequins or shiny ribbons. The materials from which curtains are most often made are:

  • organza,
  • jacquard,
  • cotton or silk voile,
  • synthetic materials, such as nylon, styon, terylene,
  • satin.

Decorative accessories and the curtain fabric itself can be easily damaged by washing and drying in unsuitable conditions. Curtains should not be washed at a temperature higher than 40 degrees Celsius, because they may fade. For the same reason the curtains should not be tumble dried. The lowest possible drying temperature in a tumble dryer is 50 degrees Celsius – way too high for curtains
