Shopping Sustainably? Choose Bali Natural Shades!

Rattan chairs, wicker baskets, jute rugs, and natural shades are popular right now, and for good reason. Synthetic materials just can’t match the beautiful texture and rich color variations found in nature. The Bali Natural Shades collection includes naturally renewing materials, such as bamboo, sisal, grass, and jute. And they don’t just come in one color—there’s a wide range of natural tones, from Oyster to Ebony and everything in between!

The Bali Natural Shades collection also includes other naturally renewing materials, such as sisal, grass, and jute. And they don’t just come in one color—there’s a wide range of natural tones, from Oyster to Ebony and everything in between!

Here are 10 reasons to consider Bali Natural Shades for your next window treatments.

1. Unique materials.

Each shade is an echo of nature, with perfectly imperfect design variations that are truly one-of-a-kind.

2. Sustainably produced.

Materials used in natural shades are naturally grown and harvested from renewable materials, like bamboo reed, slit bamboo, sisal, grass, and jute.

3. Enjoy nature indoors.

Natural shades are a great way to connect your home decor with the view outside your window. Add some indoor plants and greenery for a trendy, organic look.

4. Globally inspired.

Welcome earthy, tropical vibes in your home.

5. Add texture and character.

Every room needs some textural elements to give it depth and interest. Bamboo curtains have a beautiful natural texture that can't be duplicated with man-made materials.

6. Completely customizable.

Add a liner for more privacy or room darkening. Choose motorized lift for convenience, or cordless lift. Go for a bottom up/top down design that lets in light while maintaining privacy. Add trim, edge banding, or a decorative valance. All these options and more are available with natural shades.

7. Easy on your wallet.

Bali Natural Shades give you a luxe look at an affordable price point. A bit more than vinyl blinds, the cost is about the same as other popular window treatments such as cellular shades, wood blinds, or roller shades.

8. Easy to install.

Bali Shades are designed for the DIYer to install. Get step-by-step instructions.

9. Clean with ease.

A quick dusting is good enough for normal maintenance, and a soft cloth does the trick for spot cleaning.

10. Different styles for different design themes.

Yes, natural window shades are a current trend, but they can also stand the test of time. Since they’re neutral, they play well design-wise with all different color schemes and types of décor.

So many things to love! Bamboo blinds are a great choice for a relaxed-yet-elegant look...but they’re not for everyone. Variations in shape, thickness, texture, and grain are to be expected from Mother Nature. They add personality and character, but they also mean that your shade will not be “perfect” and may look slightly different than the swatch you ordered.

Specifically, you may notice uneven spacing or gaps, length differences on both sides, frayed edges, or bowing. It’s also important to know that the color may change over time due to aging, sunlight, and other climatic conditions. In addition, your shades may stretch and sag over time due to the natural elasticity of the yarns combined with the weight of the material. These variations are not considered flaws but normal characteristics of natural shades.

If that sounds like it would drive you crazy, bamboo shades and other natural shades are probably not the best choice for you. But if you like the idea of a one-of-a-kind window treatment with lots of texture and natural character, then I recommend ordering some swatches to see which color and material is right for your home!
