Amaru's Curtains and Drapes are Melbourne-made from superior quality drapery fabrics offered in an impressive array of gorgeous custom colours, patterns and textures to accentuate any home's interior design. These lined curtains are a timeless and versatile soft window treatment that provides light and privacy control while improving the overall acoustics and insulation in a room.
Choosing the right fabric for your curtains and drapes involves more than deciding on the perfect colour or pattern to match your interior design.
The unique properties, texture and the way various types of drapery cloth hang, along with functionality and performance for light blocking, thermal transfer, and durability, make some curtain textiles better suited for dressing windows than others.
Amaru's decor consultants can provide expert advice on choosing the best drapery textiles for residential curtains for homes and holiday houses through to more hardwearing cloth for high traffic commercial window treatments in offices, hotels and motels.

The curtain heading refers to where the top of the drapery panels attach to the track or rod. The drapery panel heading you choose can dramatically affect your finished curtains' overall look and will also influence the type of rod or track you can use. Amaru's custom drapes are available in a variety of curtain heading styles to achieve your desired look.
Curtain lining fabric is an essential part of any quality drape. The curtain backing cloth not only protects your feature drapery textiles from sun and moisture damage but can significantly improve a curtain's ability to block light and sound and improve energy efficiency in your home. Choosing a compatible curtain lining can add body and improve the hang of your drapes, helping them to fall in graceful folds and giving a fuller look to better frame your windows.
Amaru’s custom curtains and drapes can be operated using a number of control options:
Custom-made curtains are an affordable, practical way to add your personality to any room. Sound baffling fabric used in panel drapes and lined curtains can also help create a more peaceful space by reducing 'flutter echo'. Flutter echo is a common phenomenon that occurs when sound waves bounce back and forth between the walls, ceiling, and floor, especially in large, sparsely furnished spaces and in rooms with hard surface floors. Amaru's Melbourne curtain makers can also create custom cushions and tiebacks coordinated with your soft window furnishings to complement formal and casual living areas beautifully.
To ensure the best custom drapes in Melbourne are a perfect match for your home, Amaru offers an extensive range of curtain fabric colours, from modern neutrals through to bold colours and designer patterns.

Architects and interior designers have long turned to drapery to accentuate windows and openings and create an illusion of greater ceiling height. The long vertical lines in the soft folds of floor-to-ceiling drapes, even when used on windows positioned well above floor height, will naturally draw the eye upwards, helping to make a room feel larger than it is.
Many of our curtain fabrics have test results that comply to Australian standards for flame retardant.
Amaru is a proud family-owned Australian custom drapery supplier and we manufacture our made-to-measure curtains and drapes in our Melbourne workroom.
Our motorised curtain control options offer a complete child safe solution. Cord control drapes are fitted with cord safety devices to remove the risk of accidental entanglement by children and pets.
Amaru's bumph interlining is a flannel-like brushed fabric layer sewn between the face fabric and the lining of curtain window treatments. By adding bumph, soft furnishings gain extra volume and body, and the extra layer of fabric creates an insulating air pocket, reducing heat and noise transfer between indoors and outdoors.
Amaru offers an extensive range of drapery tracks and rods to further customise your soft window treatments, from minimalist and unobtrusive solutions right through to decorative feature curtain poles and finials.
