Supremely elegant wide width sheer and voile fabrics designed to dress your windows with grace and style. Sheer fabrics are normally light weight almost see through, to allow some privacy while maintaining a light and airy feel as a window treatment. Voile fabrics have come a long way in recent years in terms of the look of the designs and colouring used. Sheers now come with additional effects such as printed patterns or embedded stripes or motifs as a design. The majority are wide width fabric so anything from approx. 290cms wide to 320cms, though some now come room-high and or railroaded. The term 'railroaded' refers to the orientation of the fabric's pattern as it is woven on the fabric roll. With railroaded fabric the design is orientated to run along the width of the fabric (selvedge to selvedge) so that you must turn the roll 90 degrees to show the design running the correct way. The width of the fabric is then used for the curtain drop. Some stripe designs and wide width curtain fabrics are often railroaded avoiding the need for seams making them idel as Voile or Sheer Curtain fabrics. A standard wide width / drop should accommodate most window heights.
