Curtains for the Algarve

Curtains at Casa e Jardim - made ‘in-house’ to exacting standards.

If there is a single item that truly 'pulls' an interior scheme together it is the curtains. A well dressed window brings colour, warmth and life to a room.
In addition to the obvious benefits of privacy and insulation, curtains can be used to define an interiors character. When closed, curtains are a dominant upholstery feature. When open they transition the interior to the exterior.

C&J founder Louise Pullin has been making curtains for over 25 years.
From the early days of sub-contracting our curtain making we have evolved a team of specialists that now makes curtain production and fundamental part of our business.

Curtain Making Algarve
Algarve Curtain Making

The C&J Paradigm:

  • Hang curtains high above the window. Make curtains a statement. Make it a bold one.
  • A proper deep hem defines a well made curtain.
  • 2 ½ - To cover the required width with a good 'depth' of fabric, forming a curtain that hangs nicely and with 'weight', the calculation for fabric is required width x 2 ½. There should be no cutting corners in this standard value for a quality curtain.
  • Pattern repeat and layout. A fundamental in curtain making but often over-looked or cost-cut. Careful pattern repeat and pattern/pleat coordination is rudimentary. With careful calculation fabric wastage will be minimal.

The Type of Curtain

Curtains can be catagorized in 4 main types:

  • Voiles - A light weight fabric, often semi-transparent. Ideal to add privacy and keep out strong sun. Often combined with a blind or second curtain.
  • Unlined Curtains - Usually in a fabric with more 'weight' than a voile. Provides a more substantial window covering.
  • Lined Curtains - Any fabric can be lined to give more weight and a black-out or dim-out lining can be considered.
  • Interlining - A secondary lining of light-weight material between the main fabric and lining. Adds body and helps the curtain hang.

The Type of Heading

  • Typically decorative the heading is a hand-sewn or applied tape to which the curtains is attached to the pole.
  • Eyelets
  • A metal ring in the curtain heading that is threaded on to a pole. A very popular style in the '80, and '90's now somewhat out of fashion. At C&J we rarely recommend eyelets but we still make them occasionally to the highest standard.
  • Pleated
  • The classic pleated look comes in number of forms, pencil, double, triple... A useful header type for general use.
  • Goblets
  • The classic traditional 'heavy' curtain heading. Goblets need to be hand made and sewn so they are about intensive.
  • Waved
  • 90% of the curtains we make at C&J feature a waved heading and are hung from a track. The contemporary solution for any style of fabric.

The Type of Support

The type of support chosen is partly dictated by the curtain heading. Traditional wooden curtain poles have been largely superseded by metal poles which in turn have now been replaced by tracks.

The Required Length

Purely a matter of personal choice. Typically curtains are hung from between ½ to 1 cm off the floor. Voiles and light weight curtains are sometimes allowed to lay lightly on the floor. Rarely but dramatically we make curtains that lay fully 5 - 10 cm on the floor.
