These wooden roman shades (also known as matchstick shades or bamboo shades) form accordion pleats when they are raised. A 6" valance is included at no additional charge. The materials used to make Natural Woven Wood Shades have unique variations in color , texture, size and shape of slats and reeds affecting their spacing. Color variations in some materials will continue to change over time. Spacing and color variations are natural and are not considered a defect. Natural Woven Wood Shades filter rather than block the light. Although they do provide daytime privacy, we recommend adding a liner for added nighttime privacy.
The natural elasticity of yarns combined with the weight of the natural woven material may cause shades to stretch upwards to 1" to 1 1/2" after installation. This is particularly noticeable on inside mount shades or shades that extend from ceiling to floor. Ordering the shade shorter than needed will help compensate for stretching over time, however will be short when installed. Note that the addition of edge binding will not only add a truly personal decorative touch, but will also help control the stretching.
