 Optional Upgrades
Bamboo Edge Binding
4 inch Edge Binding in Pecan
Fabric Edge Binding

We strongly recommend adding edge binding to any woven wood shade. Not only does edge binding add color and style to the shades, it protects the delicate edges of the bamboo from splintering, catching, or breaking.

Edge binding comes in either varied fabric widths between 1 inch and 4 inches. See individual products for details. Since the fabric is wrapped around the edges of the woven wood shades, less than half of the fabric width is visible on the front of the shades.

Privacy & Blackout Liners

Because woven wood shades allow some light to enter through each of the woven bamboo fibers, adding a privacy or a blackout liner is recommended. This adds both privacy and light control to the bamboo shades. Liners can either be attached to the bamboo shade or movable liners with their own separate lift cord. Moveable liners can be raised during the day while the shade is lowered to allow filtered light in the room.

The liners on our Tavarua Woven Wood Shades are made from a thicker fabric while our other woven wood shades offer a thinner polyester liner.

Privacy Liners: Create privacy but allow some light to enter the room.

Blackout Liners: Block all light from passing through the shades as well as provide privacy. Minimal light may pass between the shade and the window frame.

Moveable Roman Liner: Adds the ability to raise and lower the liner separately from the bamboo shade. Lift control will for the liner will be on the opposite side of the shades.

Top Down Bottom Up - Doufold

The top down bottom up feature allows the bamboo shades to be raised as traditional shades but they may also be lowered from the top down. This allows light to enter the room and a view outside while providing more privacy than with the shades raised.

Things to consider:
Top down bottom up comes with 2 lift cords, one on each side of the shade. One to raise the shades and the other to lower them. When the shades are lowered from the top down the cords that suspend the shade will be visible.

Rollease/Continuous Cord

The rollease or continuous cord loop upgrade is a clutch mechanism and a continuous pull that makes it easier to lift larger shades.
