Similar to the Roman blinds the Austrian model is controlled with the same mechanisms.
It is also made from a curtain fabric. That’s why the color, pattern and style options are almost unlimited. The collection which we provide is also with different blackout fabrics (total blackout and semi blackout), sourced from proven European manufacturers. The main goal to offer this wide range was to suits the needs and style of the different homes nowadays.

Unlike Roman blinds, these blinds have a larger volume and decorative folds. That’s why many years the Austrian Blinds were preferred solution for large rooms and often used in the Retro, Baroque and Eclectic styles. They first gained popularity in the Austria – as their name suggests – in the 18th century. At that time, woolen and silk fabrics were used to achieve the stylish and romantic look of the blind.
Today the Austrian Blinds can be made from both – some of the thin and soft fabrics for sheers or the thick heavy curtain fabric. Also, depending on your preference and the choice of fabric, it can be combined even with some other type of blinds. The design look can be finished also with sheers or heavy curtains on a rail if you decide.
How to clean them?
You can clean the dust using the dust-brush tool on the vacuum cleaner (set on low suction) or wipe with a damp cloth. The fabrics for the Austrian Blinds are washable. You may also hang the blind outside and wash down with warm water and mild washing liquid. The fabric allows for machine washing also but on gentle cycle and on a program not more than 30 degrees. Remove the fabric immediately after the washing spin cycle, and reinstall while it’s slightly damp. Never put the fabric in the dryer. The Austrian Blinds can be steamed.
