Swags are treatments that are scalloped in shape. Several swags might be used on a single window at the top of hanging Cascades or Jabots that are long drapes with angled hems that hang on each side of the window.
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.
There also many other types of curtains which have other uses, not just for windows. Shower curtains for example are made purely to keep water from leaking out of your shower or bath and are made of water proof material. Some curtains which are hung over doorways where a door would normally be are known as portieres. These types of curtains were very popular in wealthy households in the Victorian era.
The curtains that you choose for your windows while decorating your home can largely determine the way your home will look. Curtains have the capability to give your home whatever ambience you want it to have. There are many types of curtains available in the market. They differ in terms of design, fabric, color, texture etc. It is up to you to understand which type is best suited to your requirements and accordingly you should put curtains on your windows. It is quite obvious that you want your home to look better than the other homes you see. Besides this, if your home is wonderfully designed then it also eases you up when you reach home at the end of a hard day's work. It is impossible for someone to relax if his/ her home is untidy and not good in aesthetic terms.
