In recent days, I’ve become much more aware of the fact that turning bamboo fibers into fabric is a process that is far from environmentally friendly. While I still believe bamboo as material in its original state is more eco-friendly than traditional woods and fibers, I’ll try to stay away from the fabrics unless there is clear evidence that the production was done in a better way.
That said, these great tab-top curtain panels from Brylane Home are not made of fabric, but slats of bamboo. And if you know anything about Brylane Home, you know how affordable all their products are. They don’t have a big selection of green items, but I’m glad to see that these are just as affordable as all their other products are. I’m personally not a big fan of the valance, or valances in general, but I love the panels.
According to the testimonials by buyers, these curtains have been very well received. One buyer did say that they are a little too heavy to be used in front of a glass door as shown in the photo, because they don’t slide along the rod very well. But I can think of more than a few places where they would be more than welcome.
Why It’s Green:
- Made of bamboo, a fast-growing grass that can be grown without the use of pesticides
