Awesome CurtainsMiriamThese curtains are an awesome value. It’s difficult to find curtains that are longer than 98”. These fit the Bill.5
Quality cottonRobertaNice weight.5
Great curtainsClaudiaThese are great basic curtains. I used them in my basement to make it less severe, so we could use it as a "spare bedroom" for guests (hung a wall of curtains to hide the storage space), in my AirBnb because they are sturdy and durable with clean lines, and in my newly redecorated bedroom (again, for the clean lines). They are just heavy enough and simple enough to be versatile without looking cheap.5
Luxurious lookTyreseI’m impressed with these. Very nice.5
GreatfullJaneExcellent material for draping the window. Will order another pair in the future5
Nice curtainsSarahI was a bit disappointed as these were not “truly” room darkening. They are heavy standard ikea curtains. Perfectly fine. However I needed to double them up with an older, similar pair to achieve a darker room.3
No matter how many you buy the are never the same lengthEvaI both in the store 2 pairs and online another 2 pairs. Not 2 panels were the same length...how hard can it be to cut them right? Material and looks are amazing but if they cannot the same length is not so worth it.1
BeautifulNoraThese 100% cotton heavy fabric makes these my favorite curtains. I have them altered to my perfect length. They don’t block light much at all. They are just gorgeous.5
look niceDilingood quality. But very wrinkly after machine wash. Look better before washing.5
Poor quality controlCrystalThese curtains are a good material and do a good job of keeping light out BUT for the price I paid I would expect the curtains to be the same length-- instead the two pieces of this curtain are almost an inch apart in length...2
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 QualityMaryI 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 THEMAshleyI 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 darkeningSofiaThey’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
Merete Curtain PanelsSusanYou cannot beat the price and quality of these curtains. Have bought them for three different houses over the years.5
Will definitely buy again…RobinWill definitely buy again…5
High quality fabricTamiThick, good quality fabric. Since it is white it lets some light in (which I love) with total privacy .5

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

Room darkening fabric

The room darkening fabric lets in a small amount of daylight, when it is brighter outside and darkens the room. It prevents glare on TV’s and digital screens. It gives you a strong sense of privacy as people cannot see in day or night. Silhouettes and light indoors are barely perceived.
