Fabrics may often come from different batches or different dye-lots and can vary slightly from one batch to the next, so your blind may not be identical to your sample.

Pull the beaded chain in one direction until some of the louvres are in the closed position. Keep pulling the chain slowly but firmly which will force all the louvres into the closed position. The gearbox will make continuous clicking noises as the louvres close. This noise is normal and only occurs when you are lining up the louvres!

+ The louvres (fabric veins) on my vertical blind won’t turn!

This is an easy problem to fix! The louvres were probably fitted in the closed position and each louvre is trapping the next one and preventing it from opening! Please remove all the louvres. Pull the control chain, until the jaws of the hooks are all facing in the opposite direction to the control chain. Re-fit the louvres, starting with the louvre closest to the control chain. Each louvre should now be hanging in the fully open position and the blind should operate perfectly.

  • All curtains can be dry-cleaned. Due to the nature of some fabrics, a small amount of shrinkage, up to approximately 5% can be expected. To keep dry cleaning to a minimum, we would recommend they are cleaned regularly with the upholstery attachment of a vacuum cleaner. Hems and side seams should never be pressed as this will distort the curtains.
