Curtain Lining

Before you begin making curtains or a blind, consider what sort of curtains or blinds you are making and whether you will require lining. Purchasing your curtain fabric and lining together will save paying two lots of postage and will ensure that you get the right amount of curtain lining to match the fabric for the curtains themselves.

Sateen Curtain Lining & Satin Curtain Lining

Sateen is a very good quality lining that is recognizable by the face side is glossy and the back is dull.  There is not much difference between sateen and satin but sateen is usually a good weight for lining soft furnishings and satin is a heavier weight to be used as curtains etc.  The manufacturing difference is the technique used of broken twill weaving in either the warp or weft system.  If the floats are woven parallel to the selvedge (edge of fabric) it is called satin.  If the floats are woven perpendicular, it is called sateen.

All our curtain linings are available both online and in store from our fabric warehouse in Northamptonshire.
