In the 1700s, privacy was very important as it is these days. Before, the only way people will know what is happening somewhere was through their windows. But somewhere along the line, they realized that windows must be covered – rags just would not do. Hence, Net Curtains were born. These are intricately woven laces acting like mirror glasses. They were used to be made of wool, silk or cotton. These days, most are made of polyester already, a material which has the ability to retain the exquisite look of silk but is much cheaper.
3 Kinds Of Net Curtains
Voile – These are great for huge windows. They have rich patters which are weaved elaborately. You can choose to have them embroidered. However, they are normally plain and can easily be placed on walls. They are made of wool and are semi-transparent.
Jardiniere – These are full length curtains with an arch at the end. This will allow morning sun to shine into your room without compromising privacy. These are lovely curtains to look at. In fact, anyone will surely appreciate the elegant ambiance it provides to your home.
Cafe – These curtains are much cheaper as they only cover the lower half of your window. They are the most sought-after curtains for kitchens. They can actually look very stunning with the use of the right kind of poles. This is the best option for you if you want to experiment with shades and styles in order to achieve what you need.
Did you know the word “lace” came from? It was actually derived from the Latin word “lacques” which means snare or loop. Lace is the term which extends to any openwork fabric that is created through knotting, looping, or twisting of threads by hand or a machine.
