Why do we line drapery? Seems to be a simple question but the reasons can be lost on some, especially when you consider the number of ‘linings’ that are offered and can be used. What are the differences between them all and what specific purposes do they solve that another does not? We have many designers and purchasing agents asking these questions of our sales managers, so we get it. It seems that every lining or coating is created equal but they are not. Every lining has a purpose and role and that isn’t a point to be short changed.
