Product Specifications

With the exception of the Top Down - Bottom Up hardware all others can be made up to 96" wide. However, most of the fabric rolls are between 48" to 55" wide and so to accommodate larger windows the fabric has to be seamed. The workroom will take special care in seaming but please note that SEAMS ARE VISIBLE.

To determine the location of the vertical seams is very simple. Lets assume that your window is 84" wide but the maximum width of the fabric is 48" - subtract 48" from 84" for 36" divided by 2 is 18" and this tells you that the vertical seams will be 18" in from the edge. The widest piece is always in the center.
