Curtains-noodles do not have a rim, as in Kisei, andeach thread is attached to the curtain separately with a loop or knot.

Curtains of solid materials

A distinctive feature of this variety is theStrands of beads and beads are strung exclusively. In this case, these are not decor elements, but the basis of the curtain, while the thread performs only a connecting function.

Care instructions

Like any curtains, rope curtains requirecareful care: thin yarns can tear during use, not to mention surface dirt, cracks in the beads and loose fibers. What in such cases do?

How to wash threaded curtains?

Let's start with pollution. Cleaning of the product depends on its texture:

  1. Usual thread-like curtains without beads, as a rule,can be washed in a typewriter, you must first braid the shoelaces in the braid. To ensure that the fibers do not begin to moan after washing, it is recommended to choose a delicate mode (the temperature is not more than 30 degrees).
  2. If there are still beads on the fibers, it is better not to risk and soak the curtains in a soap solution, independently wash them: the machine and the threads will remain intact.
  3. Curtains made of hard materials are not very dirty due to their structure, so it is enough to wipe them periodically with a damp cloth, removing the main dirt and dust.

If you do not, the fibers from below will start to "crumble", making the curtain sloppy. Moreover, the longer the threads stay in this state, the less they will serve in principle.


In order to shorten the curtains - the threads, their ends after the cutting must be sealed

So, if you decided to make a curtainin short, trim it to the intended level and fasten the tip with a special clip (like on laces, if it fits the general interior concept) or a knot.
