The main difference between muslin from ordinary curtains is not a solid canvas, these are separate threads. Sometimes they are thicker, twisted, sometimes they are replaced by thin strips of fabric, sometimes quite thin and airy. In any case, muslin is a curtain in which individual threads are fixed with a single strong strip of fabric. It, in fact, serves as a unifying element and is attached directly to the cornice.
Filament curtains appeared in the East. Long threads on the windows and doorways simultaneously shaded the room and did not interfere with air circulation. These qualities of cotton curtains are appreciated today. But designers especially appreciate muslin for very wide decorative possibilities..
Kisei has another name, not so refined, but “tasty” and reflecting all the features of such curtains – “noodles”. There are several types of such framing for windows and doorways:
- with multi-colored threads;
- plush, created from threads in the form of a spiral or chain;
- with pom-poms;
- with other decorative elements, for example, bugles, beads, feathers, clips.
Filament curtains can be used in any room in the house. In kitchens, windows are usually decorated with short curtains made of threads. They are convenient, as they do not interfere with the use of the windowsill and are less dirty..
The beauty of muslin is that the threads can be twisted, tied up, arranged as you like. And the room will take on a completely new look! Just two clips, beautiful fasteners, supporting the threads in the bundle – and the frame of the door or window will become even more beautiful.
The color scheme of muslin can be very different. From solid colors and classic combinations of white with black, red, blue, yellow to a real rainbow. The main thing is that at the same time the filament curtains fit into your interior, correspond to the overall picture of the room decor.
If there are decorative elements on the cotton curtains, it is not recommended to wash them at home! Better give it to dry cleaning. Or remove the decor, but then you have to sew on everything, attach it back. An ordinary muslin, just made of threads, can be washed in a machine, after weaving a neat braid and putting it in a special bag. After washing, you will have to untangle the threads of the curtain, but there is definitely nothing to iron.
Kiseya can serve as a good option for zoning space. It is convenient that you can freely pass through such a curtain, even if both hands are busy.
Thinking about how and what to decorate your window or doorway, be sure to pay attention to the cotton curtains. They are so different, so gently envelop the space, so airy. True, we must admit that children and pets are very fond of muslin, who can simply play with threads and entangle them. In this case, you should buy a shorter gauze, up to the windowsill.
