Our newest collection, Peruvian Siesta, is almost in store. But what process did these fabrics go through before they came to the collection? How is a curtain collection made? We will now explain this to you.



Step 1: Moodboards

The first step in building a collection is to create a mood board. On a mood board we can display our ideas, concepts and market research in one place and create a complete picture. During the entire process, it is an easy way to go back to the essence and the overall picture of our collection.


Step 2: What is trendy and what is timeless?

A bmfabrics collection is always a mix of modern, timeless pieces and trendy eye-catchers. So there is something for everyone. In our collections, you can find beautifully woven unis, structured transparent inbetweens, soft black-out dimouts, and so on in a huge number of colors!


Step 3: The right fabric

What makes a fabric the right  fabric? Certainly with uni, it is not always easy to let the material speak for itself. What is important to you when you choose a curtain fabric? That it looks good, that it stands out in your interior or that it fits so perfectly that you can no longer imagine your home without them?

Fabrics with a high light fastness are really a must for us. Because you do not want to spend hours and hours of searching for the right fabric with the exact right shade, and then find that the colour is fading. That is why we conduct extensive tests on lightfastness. The fabric must not only look good at the moment, it must continue to do so!


Step 4: Hang and washtests

A curtain fabric must not only look good, it must also hang well. That is why we carry out extensive tests in our lab to determine whether a curtain hangs properly. And what if your curtain gets dirty? All our fabrics are subjected to extensive washing tests to ensure that the fabric retains its qualities!


Step 5: Colors, shades, recolouring, …

This is perhaps the most important step: choosing the right colors! A fabric can get a completely different look by giving them a different color. Not every greige is the same! And what about bright colors? What is also important is to view the colors under different light sources. Yellow light can make the color of your fabric look completely different from natural light. Sometimes colors take on a different tone with a certain fabric, so then we have to test again and again until we find the right tone.
