CurtainsVerified ReviewerExcellent value5
curtainsVerified Reviewernot up yet but have anothet pair in different colour and they are exactly what I wanted. thank you5
Brilliant!Verified ReviewerThese are fab! Really lovely colour and great value!5
Perfectly fineVerified ReviewerStruggle to find long curtains that aren’t custom made so Ikea are great for that. These are fairly thin but fine what our needs which is just to block full viewing into our kitchen which has large double doors into the garden so they don’t need to be thick just enough to give privacy. They’re a good price for the length4
These curtains look amazing.Verified ReviewerThese curtains look amazing.5
Very longVerified ReviewerVery long4
LightweightVerified ReviewerOrdered for summer as wanted something lightweight, but still providing a bit of privacy. Think they will fit purpose, but didn't get round to putting them up as by the time they arrived hardly seemed worth it. Will have them ready for next year though4
they were very thinVerified Reviewerthe curtains were very thin see through so they were cheap.2
Lovely fabricVerified ReviewerLovely fabric and good quality even better when on sale !!5
Excellent value and perfect curtainsVerified ReviewerWent to IKEA with something in mind and found the perfect item.5
Good qualityVerified ReviewerPerfect for dressing a window if you don't want anything too heavy.5
PerfectVerified ReviewerAbsolutely amazing. I work night and was really struggling to sleep until I brought these! Best £25 I’ve ever spent5
Very pleased with these!Verified ReviewerNeeded thin white curtains for a wardrobe , instead of doors. Really like the top of them, was able to put a tension rod through easily. They are just right thickness...thin and light, but not see through. Great length, too long for what I wanted but I just cut them to length. Better than being too short!!5
Perfect privacyVerified ReviewerNeeded some privacy in front room windows as the nets we had could still be seen through. Heavy opaque solid white can not be seen through nor can you see out through them great price as needed 3 pairs still light weight as nets.5
Just what I wanted.Verified ReviewerMade a real difference softening our rather clinical bathroom.5
Ideal sheer curtains. Privacy and diffusionVerified ReviewerLovely weight curtain offering just the right balance of privacy and light diffusion, without blocking. Lovely between my lounge and sitting room to make them feel cosier. Love that the length can be whatever you choose. The tops can take hooks, rings or threaded through the pole as we have. After buying some cheaper ones elsewhere and returning those, I bought these out of desperate need, but they're brilliant. Perfect.5
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.
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 organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is recycled polyester?
When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in products like 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 using less new raw materials too.
