Belgian Linen Drapes & Curtains
Inspired by a long tradition of European craftsmanship, Alva is a modern window treatments company making “custom” — accessible. Each & every Belgian Linen drape is crafted by hand using the same methods and factories that produce for the world’s preeminent interior designers and architects.
It is easy to see why linen drapes are a staple window treatment. They fulfill many roles beyond light control and privacy, including adding depth and warmth to a space. They also serve to refresh a room without large, drastic changes to your style or color palette.
The key to the custom drapes, though, is the perfect length. Appropriate lengths for bathrooms, kitchens, and window seats include right at, or just below the window sill. For casual settings, Café curtains are superb. These curtains cover only a portion of the window, typically the bottom two-thirds. It is a very light and airy curtain, beautifully constructed and designed to let in a lot of light. For more formal settings of living or dining areas, consider more substantial draperies in texture and weight.
Alva’s heirloom quality Belgian linen drapes are exceptionally durable. Not unlike leather, it’s one of the few fabrics that actually gets better with age! It becomes softer, smoother, and more lustrous. It lasts up to 12 times as long as cotton. And, most importantly, its elegant simplicity makes a modern home, a better home.
