Great fabric and beautiful lookBILLYGreat fabric and beautiful look for your leaving room and dinner5
I have several of theseKellyI have several of these curtains for large-picture windows. They work great and the grommet makes it easy to open and close.5
Excellent curtainsDavidExcellent curtains. Opened them out of the box and hung them. Didn’t need ironing or anything. Perfect for my living room allowing light to come in but also shades for privacy.5
Excellent QualityMARY M.I have these beautiful curtains in several different rooms. They are very high quality, the fabric is heavy, they drape nicely, and go well in anywhere. For some reason, they seem to repel dust. I don't know why because the fabric does not appear to be treated with any thing for that purpose, they just never get dusty looking. Because they have grommets, they are easy to hang and always look perfect. What a bargain!5
LOVED THEM UNTIL I WASHED THEMAshley M.I truly loved these curtains, but the when I followed the cleaning instructions they all shrunk to various lengths. I intended to have the curtains dry cleaned when I took them down but the tag instructs not to and to wash instead. Now they look AWFUL. All different lengths. It’s so dissatisfying.2
Love them!KellyGreat quality. Love the warm white color. They hung well. Just beautiful. Would definitely buy again.5
Definitely not room darkeningSofia G.They’re a beautiful cream color and look extremely elegant but they do not block any sun from coming in. The fabric is very nice and look expensive but they’re extremely thin so all of the sun comes in. They’re really just for show and to make the room look more out together than anything else. I get a bunch of sun in my room that wakes me up so I bought them hoping to be able to sleep in but they didn’t help at all. I actually just get upset when I look at them. They do look very elegant so if you’re looking for that then buy them but if you want room darkening then I do not recommend.2

Poor quality controlMargarita R.I had to hem these to fit perfectly because the proper size was out of stock. The curtains were not square and sometimes as much as 6 inches longer on one side. I had 8 panels to hem. It should not have been so hard if the quality control on these curtains was spot on to begin with. You also need to double up if you want them to look lux. Threw them in the fabric pile and purchased DKNY curtains instead.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 fiber 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 labor, child labor 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 fibers. 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.
