Nice material, well made.KateNice material, well made.5
Nice quality natural fibre curtains.RHONDANice quality natural fibre curtains. And washable too. They work very well in my apartment. I use them on my patio door and on my coat closet.5
Good quality for the priceDianneGood quality for the price5
Great curtains that provide privacyJASMINEGreat curtains that provide privacy while allowing light. Only downside is that there is some slight shrinkage after washing so that must be taken into consideration when hanging them.4

Happy for the product andMINGHappy for the product and match the price.4
Perfect Opacity for privacy without blackoutIstalinbelWhen closer they let in a lot of daylight while still providing great privacy at night. Outsiders could probably make out figures in the room but nothing more. Saves a lot on daytime electricity because they can keep a room fully lit with daylight (bright enough to read or work) while reflecting back/softening some of the harsher direct sunlight. Had to rehem as the panels are rarely even, but that is the case with most curtains. Long panels at this value are hard to find.5
Love the LookDebbie2020I bought this a few weeks ago and hung them in the bedroom, love the way they look, perfect length, nice fabric, slide easily on the rod, would definitely purchase again5
DrapesMary1111111Night just last week and they are great. Keep out the heat but not much light but I love them5
Love themLindsay mEveryone thinks they are beautiful and thick looking5
Room darkening curtainsDLM49Excellent fabric - darkens the room and makes a small room look light and airy. Perfect at a cabin.5
Very good qualityChanel hVery thick and long like the fact it blocks the sun out5
Perfect Ivory ColourEmerald EyesPerfect ivory colour to match any interior. Heavy cotton allows just enough light in, but maintains privacy. Grommets make opening and closing drapes easy!4
Not resistantXyz abcBought it, wash it the next day... broke in the dryer! The metal part came out twisted... Return it immediately1
Not Room DarkeningBrit1234I bought these for my son’s nursery to replace a different pair of white curtains hoping to make the room darker. These curtains let a ton of light in and don’t actually make the room any darker.1
I loved these until I washed them and they shrunkDaphneinVicI loved these, they are not blackout curtains but I didn't want that, they still let a lot of light through, but they are opaque so they give a lot of privacy. I recently moved and wanted to wash these before putting them into my new place. I have 4 panels and washed them all exactly according to the instructions. When I put them up I noticed that they are approximately 5 shorter than the sheers that I've always had paired with them. They look terrible now as the sheers peek out 5 below the main curtains. I'll be getting rid of these and would recommend that if you buy these, do not follow the wash instructions. I have no idea how to wash them without having them shrink. Very disappointed as 4 panels cost me $80 and now I cannot use them.3
Excellent ValueTrindaI purchased 3 pair and hung to fit at 96 (mine measure 100 and 4% = 4)after washing; due to time constraints did not wash before hanging so they are currently puddling on the floor (popular in the 80's). Look just fine in the children's bunk room. Mated the white curtains with room darkening blinds and my winter ski tenants are happy with the result. If you are looking for a high end look for the principle rooms this may not be for you, but I will buy another 11 sets for our newly built cottage to blend with the ship lap walls. Easy to keep clean- use linen setting and steam to iron.5
Good solid curtainsLiberty1I run a small resort and have started to purchase these curtains for our cabins. While they are not perfectly room darkening, they are good enough for our purposes. They are sturdy, wash well in cool water (I don't put them in the dryer), they don't pill quickly, and they are easy to hem. I AM very disappointed to discover, however, that Ikea has discontinued the navy colour we use, and now I have to look elsewhere for matching panels!5
Not Room Darkening?phip1I bought these curtains online due to the current situation going on in the world... I needed room darkening curtains for my 4 year old because she believes she cannot go to bed if it is not dark outside. It got delivered today, I opened the curtains - and this is NOT room darkening! It is just material all light coming through....1

Our take on cotton

We use cotton in many of our products, from sofas and cushions to bed linen and mattresses. It is a soft, durable and renewable fibre that breathes and absorbs moisture. All these great qualities make cotton one of our most important materials, but it isn’t without its challenges, much having to do with conventional farming methods that negatively impact the environment and poor working conditions for farmers. With our size and volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry. By only using recycled cotton or cotton from more sustainable sources, working with partnerships and initiatives on the ground and prioritising compliance, we believe that we can make a positive impact in the world of cotton.

100% cotton from more sustainable sources

Since 2015, all cotton in IKEA products is either recycled or comes from more sustainable sources*. This means that we only source cotton grown using sustainable farming practices that reduce the use of fertilizers, pesticides, and water, improve working conditions and earnings for farmers, and benefit ecosystem health and biodiversity conservation. To ensure that the final product is from more sustainable sources, we have set up measures that enable us to trace all our cotton down to the level of raw material.

Working together to drive change

Each year, IKEA uses around 0.5 percent of all cotton grown around the world. This may not seem like a lot, but the number is big enough to drive change in the industry. For many years, we have been working with partners and stakeholders globally to transform conventional large-scale cotton farming and set social and environmental standards for cotton production. As an example, we helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who runs the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Today, more than 110,000 farmers have adopted more sustainable farming practices within IKEA projects.

Ensuring compliance throughout the value chain

All IKEA products are produced in accordance with the IKEA IWAY Standard, our Supplier Code of Conduct. It sets out the minimum environmental and social standards expected from our suppliers, including compliance with local laws. We do not accept any form of forced labour, child labour or treatment in breach of our supply chain requirements. Our cotton teams across the globe ensure that all cotton used in IKEA products meets the demands of compliance in our supply chain. By having teams on the ground in areas where it has previously been challenging to work responsibly, we can challenge the traditional ways of working and improve the industry. If we discover that we are acting in places where we cannot ensure our requirements are being met, we follow up on the ground and drive change.

With SY iron-on tape everyone can "sew" curtains. All you need to do is cut your fabric to size, fold the hem, lay the strip in place and iron it with a warm iron.


What is cotton?

Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibres. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and water.
