Why can linen curtains be asymmetrical?

Precision, symmetry, and ideal lines are the straight paths to a boring home environment. Natural fabrics such as linen have organic qualities and bring their charisma and character to every new home. There are questions about why linen curtains can become asymmetrical. It is perfectly normal. Let us tell you why.


A living and natural fabric

Although the linen yarn is straightened when weaving curtains, it can change its parameters by up to 2.5 cm after the edges have been hemmed. That is normal with such natural fibres. What if I want stability in my curtains? Usually, after a few washes, the curtains take on a stable shape and regain their original state. 

Linen fabric curtains are also full of life. Curtains made of this fibre can fluctuate and change shape under the weight of the fabric. Yes, you are buying curtains with character, but you are also rewarding your home with naturalness, a sustainable product that provides exceptional fresh air permeability to the rooms and allows you to enjoy tradition-based luxury in your home.

In addition to their unique texture and organic feel, linen curtains offer a range of practical benefits. The natural fibers in linen make the curtains highly durable, ensuring that they will last for years without losing their beauty and charm. Linen curtains are also hypoallergenic, making them an ideal choice for those with allergies or sensitive skin. And because linen is a breathable fabric, it helps to regulate temperature and humidity levels in your home, ensuring a comfortable and healthy living environment. Whether you prefer a classic, minimalist look or a more rustic, bohemian style, linen curtains are a versatile choice that can enhance any space with their timeless elegance and natural warmth.


Falling curtains - the new fashion?

Falling curtains that touch or lie slightly on the floor of the house are a beautiful trend that decorates the home and adds elegance and sophistication. Longer linen curtains also avoid the element of asymmetry and cover the entire space up to the floor.

In addition to the aesthetic appeal, floor-length curtains can also provide practical benefits. They can help block out drafts and noise from outside, as well as provide privacy. If you have windows that are oddly shaped or sized, custom-made floor-length curtains can be a great solution. They can be tailored to fit your specific needs and add a unique touch to your home decor. When choosing the right length for your curtains, it's important to consider the height of your ceilings and the overall style of your space. Whether you opt for sheer or heavy drapes, floor-length curtains are a timeless choice that can transform any room into a cozy and inviting retreat.

Our customers who prefer naturalness and more predictability tend to choose these long curtains and forget about asymmetry. Those who prefer the variation and dynamism of a natural fabric consider the alternative of shorter curtains while embracing the potential asymmetry.
