Plain Cotton CurtainDanielVery good quality product. I have it hanging in my living room. It carries a nice vertical line straight down to the floor. It is thick enough to block the sun. I love it!5
Fabric is much heavier thanJenniferFabric is much heavier than described and appeared online.3
Great greats …butSusanI ordered two sets and one had the rusty impression of the grommets in two spots on the top of the drapes. . The packaging was intact. This was disappointing3
CurtainsWaltraudPerfect thickness. Machine washable with very little shrinkage. Easy ironing.5
Love the merete curtain!Cheryl S.I've just bought another pair of these curtains for another room after having the first one for a few years. I love that they're 100% cotton and when they degrade, there is no plastic in it which is bad for the evironment. It is a lovely cream white and goes with everything and every style of room. If you want it shorter, just buy hemming tape. Shrinkage isn't really an issue since it is still plenty long. Love it! I also love that it still lets light in as I did not want blackout curtain. These are darkening curtains, not blackout curtains.5
Shrinkage makes them uselessSUSAN M.I will be complaining to customer service and returning these. I understand that they will shrink. They are cotton. What I didn’t expect is that the would shrink to 2 different lengths even though I washed them together. And I would even be sort of ok with them if I just had to hem one panel as the other panel shrank to the right length for the window. But the 2nd panel is now too short. Nothing I can do except maybe lower the curtain rod. Then I will still have to shorten the other one. Also the texture of the material is completely different after washing. #fail1
Not dark enoughMaëlla G.These let the light go through.3

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 is good at absorbing 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 production volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry.

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 treatments 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.


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.

Function solution

Sew without needle or thread

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.
