Frequently asked questions regarding measurements, trimming, etc.
How do I find out more about customising the roller blinds?
How do I find out the measurements that my blinds should have?
You can find our instructions for measuring the roller blinds with chain and cord pull here.
How precisely do you customise the roller blinds with cord pull in the width?
Due to the construction of the slats of the blinds, we can unfortunately not always guarantee hitting your measurements 100%. There is an error margin of up to 0.5 cm. If the blinds exceed the trimming measurement, we will cut the blinds according to these.
Is it necessary to trim the blinds length-wise?
No, we recommend keeping a roll of at least 10 cm at the bottom. The roll is visually appealing and also keeps the blinds in position by adding some weight at the bottom, thus avoiding that they flutter when the window is open. They can also be easier to roll all the way down when there is a bit weight in the bottom of the blind.
How big is the roll when the blinds are all rolled up?
Bamboo is a delicate and light material, so the roll is not very big. For the largest blinds with the thickest fabric, such as Brown bamboo, the roll measures a maximum of 10 cm in diameter at a length of 230 cm. On our smallest blinds with the finest fabric, the diameter of the roll is a maximum of 5 cm, such as Brown fine bamboo at a length of 160 cm.
What does it cost to trim the blinds?
The price is 47 EUR / 42 GBP per blind for trimming of the width and 40 EUR / 35 GBP per blind per trimming of the height. Prices is including 25% of VAT. This VAT will be deducted for all orders to the UK.

If you order customisation, there will be a longer production time of approx. three weeks from the time the order is registered. In addition, the right of withdrawal for customised items is lifted as soon as we start customising.

How much sunlight will pass through the blinds?

The blinds cover from approx. 25 – 98 percent.

Can the blinds be used outdoors?

As a material, bamboo can hold up well for outdoor use, as long as the blinds hangs dry. The blinds can withstand water, Bamboo is an incredibly strong material, but wind and weather corrode cords / threads and locks. You must be aware that the guarantee lapses if the curtains are hung outdoors. We recommend choosing natural blinds for outdoor use, as the natural blinds fade less than the colored blinds. The blinds should only be hung outside during the summer. They may also be treated with a NANO spray, or a neutral furniture oil, to make them more resistant.
