Sustainability in interior design

When purchasing new curtains we have many questions to ask ourselves about what type of drapes will be perfect for our space. Often the question that also needs to be on our mind is what are type of curtains are available for more a sustainable home? This is why we have introduced Ado’s recycled voile range for those thriving for a more eco friendly touch to their space.

In the next few sections of this blog we will help you understand what makes these products more eco friendly compared to other synthetic fabrics.

Recycled voiles♻️

We have worked with Ado voiles for over 20 years, this range has always epitomised the highest standard of quality of luxury and elegance. With the launch of the sustainable curtain range, we are now pushing for a more sustainable approach in the world of interior design.

Ado have chosen to begin their sustainability journey through recycled polyester. Here at Net Curtains Direct we acknowledge that synthetic fibres tend to produce a higher energy footprint, Ado value the reduction of less water waste, chemicals and pesticides via this process.  

The range of ado recycled voiles also come in different colours and patterns so you do not have to compromise on how you want your overall style and feel of your room to be. These voiles are also made to measure to your own windows! This makes it more customisable making it a prefect fit and great addition to your home. Just follow our simple measuring guide and get your exact window measurements in no time.

Why choose our new ADO recycled range?

Even though synthetic fibre overall produces a higher energy footprint, but the production of these ado voiles use significantly less water and dyes. Additionally, as synthetic fabrics don’t require cultivation, they are produced without using pesticides or arable land. These voiles are durable and highly washable, the dyes used don’t lose its colour and keep your voiles looking vibrant for many years to come.

Sustainable product care

Like most sustainable products, choosing the correct curtain is half the journey. How we choose to look after curtains afterwards, has environmental implications too. These voiles can be washed using lower temperatures, with most washing machines having an eco/ short wash option this is sufficient enough to get your recycled voiles washed and saves on energy. 30°C is enough for a thorough wash. To dry your voiles a short spin or an air dry is recommended, this saves a lot of energy and avoids damaging. All the additional accessories like curtain hooks need to be removed to avoid further damage.
