I make these wonderful curtains from Smooth linen, the same linen that I use in my sheets and pillow slips.
I am indebted to Kelley Motschenbacher who first thought of using my sheets for curtains. These days you don't have to do that — read her story below …
I always recommend ring-clips – not only do they draw more easily, you can adjust length and create inverted pleats, even hang a blackout layer without interfering with the flow of the linen. The easiest way to find the ring clips you want is to Google ‘drapery ring clips' and then click Images. No wading through ads or descriptions, just useful pictures.
Custom sizing is possible, email me for a quote.
Material: 100% Linen. "Smooth"
65" wide x 84" long
65" wide x 96" long
2” casing at the top, 5” closed hem at the bottom.
Care: Machine wash, dry outside for preference, do not over-dry. Hang still slightly damp to let wrinkles fall out, and spray stubborn wrinkle with water if necessary.
"I have been searching for the last few months for some simple linen curtains for my bedroom in Ojai, CA. I pretty much looked at every catalog offering and then I found your site.
I loved your Smooth white Linen sheets for the bed, so decided to make the curtains myself from your sheet fabric — with a very large pocket at the top so they might look like they were casually draped over the rod.
They are the perfect weight, heavy enough to keep the room dark at night — but sheer enough to let in filtered diffused sunshine during the day. The pretty stitching on the hem gives them a more finish look…
I now have 5 sets of these covering my vintage and not so beautiful windows. They catch a breeze and move around — no rings, no pulls, no bells 'n whistles.
Simple can be really beautiful."
