  • Silk looks luxurious in studies and bedrooms in the Provence or Empire style.
  • Jute is undemanding in care, resistant to mechanical damage and sunlight. It emphasizes such styles as the Country and the Eco.
  • Felt is the most popular. However, it is not advised to apply in rooms subject to influence of various aromas and smells, since the material actively absorbs them.
  • Velour drapery looks like a tapestry and velvet. It is very demanding in care and mostly is being used in bedrooms.
