CURTAIN INSTALL INFO

Curtains are custom sized wall hanging made of knotted components. Both Curtains & PLT's use the same components- Pinched Discs or Shells, Press Beads, and Rings. 

Curtains

  • Order by Width x Length dimensions
  • Width is an approximate measurement of the ceramic portion width
  • Length is an approximate measurement from the top of the bar to the bottom of the last ceramic component
  • Bars for curtains are 1' longer than the width of the ceramic ie. A 2' wide curtain will be assembled on a 3' long bevelled bar
  • All curtains require installation assembly

      Install Info:

        • Layered components & macrame wall hangings have a 'bunny ear' loop that slides on the bar. These arrive taped in place, but if the loop needs to be established, instructions can be found here for discs/shells and macrame
          • Layered shells & layered discs sometimes 'kink' when first installed. A video for straightening them can be found here
            • Screws & Anchors are NOT shipped with wall mounts to insure that appropriate screws and anchors are used for the type of wall that the wall hanging is mounted on

                    Wall Mount info: 

                    • Mounting brackets are not included and available in wood, iron or brass
                    • Wood wall mounts are assembled with key hole hanger hardware. Use an appropriate wall anchor and one size 8 or 10 flathead screw, minimum 1-1/4" in length. We do not recommend using the wood wall mounts for wall hangings larger than 6 Square Feet
                    • Iron & brass brackets have 2 x 1/4" hole per bracket 
                      • Use at least a size 8 x 1-1/4" flathead screw.
                      • Please consult with professionals in regards to choosing correct anchors & screws for wall type
                    • How many wall mounts per wall hanging will you need:
                      • 2.5' wide and under- 2 wall mounts
                      • 3' to 4.5' wide- 3 wall mounts
                      • 5' wide and over- use 4 or 5 wall mounts
                    • Wall mounts can be placed on the outside of hanging or within:
