Woven Grasses

Hunter Douglas Hardwired Motorized Alustra Woven Grass Shades

Styles, Fabrics and Uses

Woven Grass shades provide a timeless elegant look to any home. Woven Grass shades like their cousin Woven Woods are offered as either Roman Shades or Roller Shades. Woven grass shades are available in many types of grasses and a wide variety of colors. Woven Grasses typically are considered a sheer type of window treatment by themselves. With the addition of a fabric liner they can be transformed into a room darkening or privacy shade as well. Liners can be either attached to the shade itself or can be operated separately with a different control mechanism (e.g. roller shade).

Nearly all of our Roman Shade fabrics are GREENGUARD indoor air quality certified. Learn more about GREENGUARD here.

Controls, Shapes and Manufacturers

There is a wide variety of manual control options. Some of these include: continuous cord, cordlock, cordless lifts and UltraGlide on Hunter Douglas shades. UltraGlide is a ratcheting system that eliminates long dangerous cords by keeping the pull cord the same height all of the time. Woven Grass shades can come in the standard (bottom up) configuration or top down/bottom up from select manufacturers.

Motorization is accomplished by adding a motor to the lift system. Typically the motorized lift system uses a roller tube and either cords, strings or tapes. Lutron has developed their own uptake system that uses a roller shade type of mesh fabric. The CERUS system (see below). Dependent on the size and weight of the completed shade there are multiple motors available. We offer lithium battery powered motors, low voltage and line voltage motors.

Woven Grasses can be controlled via RF(radio frequency) or IR(infrared) remotes. There is always the option to have an in-wall keypad or have them controlled with an automation system.

Specialty shapes are available with limitations.

We offer Woven Grass systems from Lutron, Hunter Douglas, Fashion Tech and Alta.

Unique Systems

No cords

Lutron has developed a revolutionary roman shade take up system. The Cord Eliminating Roman Uptake System or CERUS. The CERUS system does away with the traditional cords and loops in Roman Shades that have caused many child safety concerns. Instead of using cords the CERUS system uses a woven mesh fabric as its uptake mechanism eliminating the potentially dangerous cords. The CERUS system is available on Lutron shades or is offered as a kit for workrooms so a customer's own materials can be used.
