Hawaiian Bamboo Curtains |
Hawaiian bamboo curtains bring a touch of the tropics into your home. Their Hawaiian origins are reflected in some of the designs available: a crouched Hawaiian Surfer riding the perfect wave, a palm tree on the beautiful Diamond Head Beach, or an exotic Hula Girl wearing a lei (a garland made of flowers) and playing her ukulele. Made by hand these curtains are made from hundreds of bamboo beads which are completely hand-painted, so the design can be seen from the front and the back. They are attached to a wooden slat which runs across the top and has eyelets to make the curtains easy to put up. The dimensions are 36" wide x 78" high.
Beaded bamboo curtains
Long, cylindrical bamboo beads are strung together on threads and attached to a wooden slat across the top. Bamboo is easy to dye and different-colored beads are used on the strands to form a pattern. As bamboo is lightweight it is a good material for making door curtains. The hollow beads make a knocking noise as they are moved by the wind or someone pushing the strands aside. Beaded bamboo curtains are great for use in children's rooms, either on windows, as a cover for storage units, or as a door curtain.
How to install bamboo curtains
Installing bamboo curtains is not a complicated process as these are attached to a wood frame with eyelets. Hold up the frame and make sure it is level above the door or window where it is to go. It is better to do it by eye in case door frame or window frame is not completely level. Mark where the curtain hooks need to go with a pencil and then hammer in curtain hooks. The curtain eyelets should fit over hooks.
