When you purchase window coverings, there is a good chance that the material and or the labor is made outside the United States. This has become a fact of life and inevitable. If it bothers you, then ask the company where you are buying from about the material and where the products are made.
If you are buying drapery panels from a store in a package, then more than likely these were made overseas. Many of these “packaged” draperies are nice and inexpensive. But, they sure don’t hold a candle to a custom made product.
Most custom made draperies are made in the United States. But, find this out for yourself. Take it a step further and find out if the draperies are made by the company you are buying from or if the work is “subbed” out to other workrooms.
If you are purchasing blinds, shades or shutters and want products manufactured in the United States, then ask your sales rep. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions and Comfortex Window Fashions, two of the most recognized names in the window covering industry manufacture a majority of their products right here in the United States. In fact, Comfortex has a consumer rebate program that ends at the end of April focusing specifically on products made in the United States.
Their marketing program to dealers like Sunshine Drapery and Interior Design is called..”American Pride. American Jobs. American Value.” So when you are looking for draperies, blinds, shades, or shutters and want American in them, then ask the company you are dealing with to let you know the facts.
