Also called window dressing. Describes the full or partial covering of window openings to solve a number of problems: to afford privacy, to filter light, to cover the dark hole of night, to stop draughts or hold back cold air, to deaden sound, and last but by no means least–to add the softness and decorative qualities of textile decoration.


Windows look good ‘dressed’ in some form or another, however simply that might be. The range and scope of treatments from shades, to pierced screens to shutters to blinds, from simple curtains to elaborate tailored, couture techniques and drapery is vast and virtually unlimited.
