DYTÅG linen curtains have several important tasks. They filter the light from the outside, give a little privacy and contribute with a warm and snug feeling. And for the linen fabric to get just the right soft fall, we use… air.
Linen textiles have been used for thousands of years and are still appreciated today. Our product developer, Alexander van der Spree, is a dedicated fan. “I love linen. It’s easy to care for, hard-wearing, and durable – and only gets more beautiful and softer the more you use and wash it.
But when a linen fabric is completely new, it can feel a bit stiff, and it takes a couple of washes before it has that soft feel and elegant fall you want in a curtain. “Linen products are often washed already when they are manufactured to become softer, but we discovered a method that showers the curtain with hot air to get the same softening effect as a wash” says Alexander. The method means that your newly bought curtains fall softly and evenly already when you hang them up – and less water and chemicals are used. Later, when you wash your curtains, they only become more beautiful. If you prefer a relaxed and washed feel, you can hang them up straight away without ironing the natural creases.
DYTÅG curtains are available in several colors and are easy to match with different styles. Alexander explains how they also give a special light depending on which color you choose. “The slightly irregular structure of the linen filters the sunrays through the curtains and lets in a comfortable and warm light. It gives your room a natural and cozy feel.”
