Cotton was the main fabric used in traditional blinds, as it could be easily dyed in different colours, and designs could be woven in the fabric or printed on them. Lace blinds, with different designs woven in them, were also an extensive and essential part of traditional shades. In fact, lace curtains are quite popular even today.
The carriers normally contain a nylon axle, two free-rolling nylon wheels, a nylon swivel stern that is designed to be tangle-free and steel hooks that are chrome-plated. Nylon materials are used as curtain carriers since they would not easily break or rust and are highly durable. However, the curtain carrier glide could also be made with a nylon swivel, one-piece nylon spool, and steel hook of chrome plating. Another type of curtain carrier is the breakaway carrier, comprised of nylon wheels, hook, and body. The tracking for curtains would vary from one location to another to suit the type of construction of the room.
The richer class of women preferred silk, velvet and linen traditional curtains. A lot of thought and craftsmanship used to go into hanging the blinds in the most elaborate way. Blinds with pencil points and French pleats, with sashes to tie them, were considered to be the height of fashion in traditional curtains. Lace and embroidered edging was added to make traditional curtains look more unique. Some traditional curtains were lined to protect them from fading from sunlight.
