Fabric for Roman Blinds
Elegant, stylish and practical – our beautifully crafted, high-quality, blinds can be created especially for you in any of our fabrics.
Made to Measure Roman Blinds are perfect for any room and work well on all windows, large or small. All our fabrics have suitable weight and composition to be made into Roman blinds.
You can choose to add a second fabric for the sides and bottom of the blind, or just the bottom only (this border will be clearly visible when the blind in drawn up). There is also a choice of standard lined, interlined, blackout or lined in a second fabric.

We make your blinds to your exact measurements. The type of window you have and where you'll be fixing your blind will determine where you should measure from - we've created a handy little guide which you can follow click here.
How do I calculate the amount of fabric needed to make a roman blind?
Helpful Hints before You Begin Measuring for Roman blinds…
- For the most accurate measurements, only use a steel tape measure.
- Don’t mix up width and height measurements. Always follow the width by height format (W x H) and mark them as such.
- Measure down to the nearest millimetre. Never round up or down to the nearest half or whole centimetre.
- If you’re measuring for more than one window, measure each one individually – never assume that your windows are the same size, even if they may look alike.

Our UK-made custom Roman Blinds are supplied with two options...
1) Made to measure Roman Blinds with wooden batten with a corded pull. An acorn and 2 cleats will also be provided.
2) Made to measure roman blinds fixed to a rotary chain track with chrome beads.
Both options are available. However, we would advise, due to increased health and safety restrictions, that made to measure Roman Blinds over 1.3m in width and a drop/length of 1.5m or over are ordered on a rotary chain track.
This is because the pressure required to pull up the larger blind tends to cause the safety 'break aways' to pop open as would a child pulling on the cords.
You can choose to have a contrasting border of fabric down two sides and along the bottom; we also offer a contrasting border to the bottom of the blind only.
Please note that this border will be visible when the blind is up. The mechanisms on our quality designer Roman Blinds come with a 1 year guarantee.
Young children can strangle in the loop of pull cords and chains that operate window coverings. New safety regulations BS EN13120 from 28th February 2014; please read and follow the instructions provided with your custom roman blinds and use the safety equipment supplied. If you have any questions, please contact us.
