French Embroidered Valances. First of all, these are not Lace as are the rest of our collections but we couldn’t help including them on our web site. It is a style that is very popular in Europe but seldom seen or even available in the U.S. that can be used in many different and attractive ways. In addition, they are wonderful Embroidered Curtains in Cafe, Valance and Tier styles. Best of all the patterns are finely machine embroidered 100% Polyester and therefore very washable. The embroidery is sewn onto an attractive sheer voile fabric.

Method of Ordering

Because the Valances can be ordered by the foot they are available in any width seamlessly.  That means they can fit any size window. Commonly used in Europe in a fullness arrived at by multiplying the rod size by 1 1/4. That will achieve an almost flat look. Probably the most popular method in the States is to use a slightly more gathered look. It is arrived at by ordering 1 1/2 times the rod size. This deepens the pleats. Ordering any fuller is not recommended because the pattern tends to get lost in the folds.
