More than just a simple piece of cloth, curtains today are used as beautiful window treatments. They not only prevent sunlight and protect against drafts, but they also improve the appearance of a room and add a special touch to its design. Used since the ancient of times, curtains have their very own history, with various fabrics and patterns invented all over the world. Generally speaking, we prefer to have curtains on our windows in order to sleep better at night, for privacy reasons and also due to their insulation qualities.
The history of curtains goes right back to the 1700's when they were made out of cotton wool or silk, silk being the most expensive and exquisite. In the middle ages fabric was very expensive so only the very rich or upper classes would have them. It wasn't until the industrial era and the development of the textile trade that made fabric prices more affordable to most people. Once the glass industry was in full swing and homes were installed with glass windows, this again helped with the textile industry and brought the prices of curtains down.
