Natural woven shades are a stylish option for windows that allow natural light to come in and created an inviting aesthetic. They are an excellent organic option for lean living, and provide a calming atmosphere. These shades serve the same purpose as any window décor, but are tailored for clean, sleek looks that cater to the minimalist lifestyle. The options are limitless in style and fashion, but the general colors retain the simple looks of textured and weaved fabrics. It is very common to have a grass cloth, light or wooden varied colors. The beauty of this type of shade is the differences in color. No two pieces are the same. When woven together, the unique patterns are exquisite.
What are they made with?
Natural woven shade is made with fabrics such as:
- Materials that are used for recycle such as match sticks
These shades are available in open knits, tight privacy weaves, light filtering and room darkening options which increase privacy and the amount of light that filters in. These shades are for indoor purposes and should be expected to have color, grain or texture variants which add to the natural beauty of the finished product.
Natural woven shades offer very clean, smart looks. They are offered in styles such as classic roman shades, folding shades, hobbled shades, side panels and woven top treatments. Additional options such as banding and remote-control selections help add beauty and serenity in one area. Although natural woven shades can be dyed to match any color and are available in designer finishes, keeping them in a natural, earthy state is the best option.
How do you clean them?
Natural woven shades are to be maintained just like fabric blinds. You can vacuum them or wipe with a cloth to keep them in top condition. Depending on the material, there are treatments you can use to prolong the wear, but should avoid water or solvents.
Do natural shades unravel?
As time passes, natural products may or may not unravel depending on how often they are used. There are repair kits available, or they can be restrung to retain a fresh look.
Are the blinds safer than regular blinds?
Natural blinds are usually environmentally safe and do not have certain chemicals or plastics that are used in some blinds. Since most are made from natural or recycled materials, they are perfect for individuals who have allergies or breathing issues. They are preferred for people who want to bring the outside in.
