All dark!GrceThe room is all dark, I get more sleep! Good black out curtains! It would be better if they come with 98cm length, then I dont have to shorten it.5
Hilleborg curtainsLiseBlocks the light great. Colour matches wonderful.5
Great curtainsAndiThe Hilleborg curtains hang well and keep out the light. They are a smooth, silky feel and heavy enough without being too heavy. We are very satisfied with them. They were longer than we needed but did a quick hemming on the sewing machine and a light iron and they are great 👍🏼5

Not quite!JasonThese curtains do a decent job of blocking ambient light sources such as street lights, passing cars, and snow glare (at night), however, they are just a tad better at blocking daylight than my regular curtains. Don't expect full blackout conditions for a daytime nap or weekend sleep in. These curtains do not come in different colours. If you are okay with the heavy look of slate grey, they might be okay for you. We doubled up with our old curtains to increase light blocking and to lighten/soften the decor of our bedroom. It is disappointing that Ikea has a very small range of curtains with nice fabric/finish and grommets for hanging. Buyers should also be aware that at 98 inches, they will need to hem these curtains. I have already done so and therefore don't see any ability to return these curtains to the store. I wasn't expecting custom curtains, but I expect that when curtains are advertised as "blackout", they are effective in all conditions, especially with daylight.2

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organizations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is recycled polyester?

We want to have a positive impact on the planet. One way is to make products from recycled polyester. When we do, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to saving on new raw materials too.

Function solution

Blackout fabric

The black-out fabric effectively blocks out all light. Perfect for people who are sensitive to light during sleep, anytime of the day. It prevents glare on TV’s and digital screens. It offers complete privacy at all hours since people outside cannot see in, even when the room is lit.
