Our curtains are available in 2 heights: 1 standard height of 280cm and 1 large height of 350cm.

The standard for ceiling height varies between 2.50 meters (recent accommodation) and 2.80 meters for older housing, with a few exceptions (noble floor of Haussmann or Loft buildings).

Prepare your curtain or veiling for the hem


Before carrying out the hem, we advise you to iron your curtain to defeat it with the folds that could have created in the packaging, then to suspend a few days to allow the material to relax.

A first machine washing or a first dry fabric care can also shrink the curtain, especially if it is made up of natural fibers (linen, wool, cotton, etc.). Prefer a first fabric care before making a hem or add a few centimeters to the hem to anticipate a possible narrowing.


Make a hem with the thermocollant strip


There are two types of heat -upper ribbon: one with protective paper, thicker, it is mainly used for curtains, the other without protective paper, finer, it is particularly suitable for veiling.
The installation technique is slightly different depending on the type of heat -upper tape.

With paper

- Decide the height of your hem
- Make an iron with an iron at the desired height
- Place the ribbon at the bottom of the curtain, glue on the back of the fabric
- Pass the strip using the iron then remove the protective paper
- then fold the fabric to the desired height of the hem and go back again



Without paper

- Decide the height of your hem
- Make an iron with an iron at the desired height
- Place the ribbon at the desired height level
- Fold the fabric to the desired height of the hem and iron
