Enviromental Statement

Curtains Places is greatly concerned about the adverse effect of our activities on the environment.

We are committed to embracing all environmental standards such as the Air and Trade Waste Standards nationally.

We are working closely with our textile supply chains so that harmful substances are present in any significant amounts. Our manufacturers are working towards this goal by adopting recognised " environmentally friendly" working methods such as careful selection of dye-stuffs, optimisation of the dye baths, chlorine free bleaching techniques, low formaldehyde finishing methods and by selecting pesticide and heavy metal free materials.

Curtains Place strives to work with suppliers that adhere to the highest possible environmental standards. One such standard is Oeko-Tex 100 Certification. Textiles under this certification:

  • Do not contain allergenic dye-stuffs that form carcinogenic arylamines of the MAK-groups III
  • Are tested for pesticides and chlorinated phenols
  • Are tested for release of heavy metal under artificial perspiration conditions
  • Are free of formaldehyde or containing trace amounts significantly lower than the required legal limits
  • Are of a pH that is skin friendly

Our range of commercial fire retardant fabrics has also been granted authorisation according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

The majority of Curtains Place range is composed of 100% Polyester.

The inherent nature of polyester gives the following washing and eco-friendly characteristics:

  • Requires less water
  • Lower temperature and therefore lower energy costs
  • Lower water absorption and higher dehydration reducing drying cost
  • Lower maintenance costs (less cleaning agents to be used) and higher durability

Curtains Place strives to only suppliers whose yarns are not produced in third world countries and that exercise socially responsible and ethical practices.
