Are you in the market for custom, artisan made curtains to elevate the look of your space? Look no further! When it comes to ordering ethnic curtains, there are a few key factors to consider to ensure you get the perfect addition to your home. Let's dive into some expert tips to guide you through the process. 

What are Artisan Made Curtains?

Artisan made curtains are crafted by skilled individuals who specialize in creating unique and high-quality pieces. These curtains are often handmade, using woven fabrics made with traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. When you purchase artisan made curtains, you are not just buying a product - you are investing in a piece of art. 

Why Choose artisan Woven Curtains?

Artisan woven curtains are known for their vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and superior craftsmanship. These curtains add a touch of cultural flair to any space and are a great way to support artisans. By choosing artisan woven curtains, you are not only enhancing your decor but also contributing to the preservation of traditional weaving techniques.

Factors to Consider When Ordering Artisan Curtains

  1. Quality: Look for curtains made from high-quality materials that are built to last, and according to the usage you will give to the panel, i.e., if it’s a panel that will need to be open/close daily, or simply a valance that will stay close all the time. Lightweight Mexican Cambaya woven fabrics need to be reinforced on the sides if you need to open/close constantly while Andean woven textiles are thicker and doesn’t need any additional reinforcing besides the hem, or natural selvage that is usually beautiful and part of the overall design.
  2. Location: The sunlight that the window gets is also a factor determining the kind of panel you need, woven Cambaya will deteriorate sooner if you don’t use a blackout panel on the back for windows that get sunlight more than 3 hours/day. Andean Aguayo textile can take more sunlight and usually doesn’t need a blackout panel on the back. Both textiles can take sunlight, but direct sunlight will reduce the durability of any textile, not just Cambaya or Aguayo textiles.
  3. Design: Consider the style and color scheme of your space to choose curtains that complement your decor. We will be happy to help you choose and work with you until you find that perfect addition to your area.
  4. Size: Measure your windows accurately to ensure the curtains fit perfectly. This is the most common issue with artisan made panels, wrong measure. Please take into account that all artisan made products are custom made, therefore not returnable/exchangeable/refundable.

  5. Customization: We offer customization options, allowing you to create curtains that are truly unique to your home. Don’t forget that if you order only one panel, instead of a pair, and you want a more gathered look later and need to add a second panel for the same window, they will not match. Artisan work is unique, they will only look similar if they are made together.

    I love these curtains, I wasn’t able to take correct measures, but I used my first (wrong size) for another little window, and ordered a second pair for my kitchen, truly a piece of art, and conversation, they just can’t be ignored, they give so much life to the room. Really pleased with the look, thanks!
