At SmartWings, we are proud to offer woven wood blinds as a smart blinds option. Before you purchase a product from Smart Wings, it’s important to understand how the blinds are made and what they are made of. Not only is it fascinating information, it may help you when making your decision on what smart blinds are right for you.
The process of making woven wood blinds is intricate from start to finish, and there are a lot of steps to cover starting from when the hemp plant that is used is harvested. So, let’s look at how the materials are collected and how woven wood blinds are made.
One of the raw materials used for woven wood blinds is hemp. The growth height of all natural hemp products is around 2 meters, but for woven wood they only need to be around 1.5 meters after the bearing and the root are removed. The bearing is usually too thin to use and the root is too thick, so removing them is the best option for making woven wood. The removal step will also keep the fabric color consistent.
Another product used in woven wood is flax skin. The conventional length for fabric width is 2.44 meters, and typically the screened flax skin won’t be that long so it must be hand tied together to create the proper length. The hand knotted technique gives wood woven Roman curtains the distinct lighting that you see where the shadows are cast as natural light is still allowed in through the curtain, creating a beautiful atmosphere.
The different natural products used in woven wood curtains grow during different times of the year in different climates, so they need to be stored differently to avoid chromatic aberration that can result in the finished woven wood shades. To avoid any kind of color diffusion, the process must pay attention to boil color, bleach and the natural air it is drying in.
Woven wood cannot be mass produced, as they are mainly made of knotted jute and bamboo. The texture of the fabric and the unique design sense of the flower plate must remain intact for it to be considered woven wood. Large-scale weaving machines cannot create the design on their own, and it can only be done with the traditional “semi-machine and semi-manual” technique.
All woven wood Roman curtain heads are added with interlining, and the advantage lies in the effective occlusion of the track and system parts of the light shadows. The bottom of the curtain head and the bottom of the curtain body are added with a heavy rod to ensure that the head and body fall straight down for the woven wood curtains.
Wrapping edge cloth size is decided according to the material used with a conventional width size of 1.5cm. The reverse side of all wrapping edge cloth is attached with adhesive lining. This is done to ensure that the woven wood curtains hang straight when applied to window fixtures.
