Creativity, Precision, Exceptional Work
In 2002, Redthreads Drapes was created out of clients' requests to make drapes to compliment the bed linens. Since then, our client lists had grown, ranging from designers and owners of some of the country's finest houses to property developers and almost everything in between, we are one of New York City finest bespoke drapery makers. We offer a full line of services including measurement, fabric purchasing and inspection, design development, fabrication and installation.
The Making Of A Beautiful Treatment
A Holistic Approach
A lot of time we will be given a concept, for many window treatment fabricators, that’s enough to work from, for us, we take the concept beyond the request, and we help the client think through what they are asking and why, we don’t just see it as work, we see the window treatment in the room, as part of the lifestyle. Our process ensures the perfect fit between the visions, architectural elements and fabric capabilities.
Once we have measurements of the windows and the photos of the space, after gathering all the information from the client we will make our proposal as to what works best for the space. Our proposal includes how the treatment will live in the space, how it works with the vision and the most effective and efficient way of using fabric.
Sometimes, it is a daunting task to choose the right fabric and understanding how the fabric will react once it's hang, if fabric is chosen from our curated fabric collections, we will advise how this fabric will work for the space and how it will do as drapes and shades. if it is com fabric, we will test the fabric to ensure appropriate way to work with the fabric.
Once the fabric arrived, if situation calls for a sampling, we will make a sample on how it will hanged and look with the specified header.
Depending on the type of fabric, it takes 2 weeks to 4 weeks to complete a pair of drapes. People always ask us why our window treatments take longer to make than other makers, because most of our drapes and shades fabrics(except very delicate fabric) have to go through the process of steaming and hanging prior to making into drapes, so the fabric is stabilized that the drapes will fit the space perfectly and reducing chances of elongation. Wool and linen and loose weave fabric need more time, as these fabrics tends to stretch as they hang, these fabric treatments have to be steamed and hanged for a week prior to making into drapes and then rehang after completed, depending on how much they stretch.
Our project manager works with the designers, drapery makers and coordinate all the measurement and installation, he ensures the final products work and fit the space, the installation will be hassle free and stress free, most importantly to ensure the delivery of the products to be within the desired deadlines.
