What better time than Valentine’s week to celebrate the love we have for our customers! Thank you for providing dozens of jobs right here in Phoenix, Arizona.
DrapeStyle has been making custom drapes, roman shades and pillows in the USA from the very start. Why is this important? We not only design here, we manufacturer here. This means that DrapeStyle is able to control the quality of the products it produces. The custom drapes and roman shades we produce right here in Arizona are of the highest quality in both fabric and workmanship. I receive about two or three calls a week, from customers wanting to know where our drapes are made. I’m proud to say that DrapeStyle’s products are made in the USA.
Need more great reasons to buy “Made in the USA” products?
When you buy American made products, the proceeds remain in the U.S. economy. The money you spend then pays the workers that directly or indirectly created the product you just purchased!
American manufacturers abide by strict regulations to protect the environment. These regulations do not exist in most of the top countries manufacturing and importing their goods into the USA causing massive pollution and environmental abuse.
Importing countries have little or non-existent regulations or standards for working conditions. By keeping our dollars in the USA, we are not supporting these horrible working conditions (long hours, exploitation of children, extremely low wages, etc.).
Quicker turn around times. Everything is here so that means it gets made more quickly, and gets shipped to you more quickly!
Nothing at DrapeStyle is “ready-made”. Custom draperies take a little more time, cost a little more money, but we think it’s worth it. And most importantly, all of our drapes, curtains, roman shades and pillows are made from the highest quality materials, right here in the USA, by a team of professionals that have an average of 25 years experience. We hope you have as deep as a commitment to American-made products as we do. For more information or to order free fabric samples, contact us.
The summer heat is officially upon us and in some areas of the Country (like here in Phoenix) is seems impossible to escape. In fact, here in the desert it is often a challenge for our central air conditioners to keep pace with the 104 degree afternoons. These hot days remind us of some simple tricks to help reduce the temperature and help protect your furniture, upholstery and carpets from sun-damage. The best way to give your home some protection without the permanent window tinting is is add a layer of blackout lining to your custom drapery from DrapeStyle. Blackout Lining is a synthetic layer of lining that will block 99% of the sunlight from penetrating through your drapery fabric. Simply close your drapes and you will reduce the heat and damaging effects of UV rays without changing the way your custom drapes look or feel. Our blackout lining is available on almost any of our custom drapes and Roman Shades for a simple up-charge of just $99 per panel! Used properly, your blackout custom drapes and curtains may actually pay for themselves through the energy that they save!
Occasionally we will get a call from a Customer or Designers who is trying to find a window treatment for a bathroom or a kitchen. Drapery is a tough option for either of these rooms but we specify Roman Shades for bathrooms and kitchens all of the time. As a matter of fact one of our more popular photographs is of a Roman Shade that we made for a bathroom. You can’t see it in the photo but just beneath the Shade is a large bathtub. Roman Shades provide a lot of versatility for odd sized windows or kitchens or bathrooms when a traditional curtain or drapery treatment is not practical.
Very often we see Roman Shades in kitchens over the sink area, laundry rooms, pantries and mud rooms. They offer great privacy, especially when they are properly lined and interlined.
We try to teach our Designers to think “outside the box” when it comes to custom window treatments for any room in your home. And, of course all of our Roman Shades are made right here in the USA in our custom workroom.
