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.
They come in many different colours and patterns but are mainly maid of wool as they are semi transparent. Jardinière curtains are also full length curtains but they have an arch at the end. These are great for keep the privacy but also allowing you to look out from the inside. Also they allow for sun to shine through into your room. Cafe curtains are slightly different in that they only have half of the window, the bottom half. Found commonly in quaint homes and cafes in France, these are great for kitchens where your window leads onto the back garden.
