Manh Truc 101: What You Need to Know

Woven Wood Roman Shades, Panel Track, Panel Drapes, and Stationary Grommet Panels

Natural textures created by reeds, grasses, paper and jute make up our Manh Truc Woven Wood Collection. Crafted from these organic elements, Manh Truc Woven Shades filter the sunlight and fill a room with warmth, texture and natural beauty. The natural elements lend to enhance the connection between you and a space, an important notion behind the growing popularity of biophilic design. While one might think Woven Shades are reserved for niche aesthetics that are rustic, bohemian, or Asian inspired, they are surprisingly versatile and can lend well to modern, traditional, or coastal casual looks.

Read on to find the best choices for your needs in our stunning selection of unique patterns, colors, textures and design solutions.

Due to the organic nature of the material, not all of the materials in the collection are available in all styles in the collection. Your dealer can help you look at the right swatches for you treatment style.

Banding

Along with a wide array of colors, textures, and sizes available, you can also personalize the look of your Manh Truc products with banding. While some materials require banding, for others it is purely up to your preference. Your dealer will help you understand your choices. Our collection offers both Twill and Fabric banding in a variety of colors, and two size choices: 3 inch or 1.25 inch.

Here’s where banding gets a little complex: Your banding choice wraps around the edge of the shade, so half the width of your chosen size will show from the sides. The look of 3 inch banding will show 1.5 inches on the side (as pictured left), and the look of 1.25 inch banding will be 3/4 inch showing on the side (as pictured right). For manufacturing reasons, banding on the bottom of a shade will always show 1.5 inches no matter what your banding size you choose. Here’s are a few of our choices:

Light Filtering and Room Darkening Options

Unlined – Light Filtering Lining – Room Darkening Lining

The see-through visibility of unlined Manh Truc shades will be a matter of shade material thickness, weave and color choice. Due to the nature of the woven materials, some shades allow more light than in others, and there isn’t one set system to deem the see-through quality like in some of our other window treatment styles. The good news is we offer a selection of light filtering and room darkening lining options to get your shades to your ideal room view, both for light quality and privacy. As always the best way to discover your needs, is to hold samples up to natural light at a variety of times of days. Your dealer will help you with swatches to figure out the best style and material for you.

For extra light control, a Duo Shade might be useful. A Manh Truc Woven Shade with a liner independent of the shade, allows you to set both the liner and the shade separately, providing multiple light control and view options.

Design Options for Unique Spaces

For door mounted shades, or windows with a limited depth, a turned headrail is the perfect solution. Turning the headrail allows the shade to sit back further for a slim profile.

Perfect for first floor bedrooms or bathrooms, Top Down / Bottom Up lifting systems allow you to drop your shade from the top or raise it from the bottom.

We offer arched or angled top shades and stationary arches, framed and unframed for special shaped window frames.

Large Windows? Not a problem.

With our Multiple-On-One Design Option, you can fit two or three shades on one headrail, while still operating each shade individually.

But if a Roman Shade won’t work for your windows, your large window might be better fit with a Panel Track or Drape System.

Panel Track

A modern alternative to vertical blinds, Panel Track Systems feature wide fabric panels. With cord or wand control motorization, you can easily slide the panels from side-to-side as a perfect solution for patio doors, large windows or room dividers. Tracks systems are currently available in white or brown.

Layered Look

If you love the natural textures of Woven Wood but crave a traditional drapery look, a Panel Drape or Stationary Grommet Panel is the best of both worlds.

Decorative Stationary Grommet Panels

Stationary Panels and Panel Drapes are railroaded woven wood material; this means the fabric is turned to run the other way so it can drape, and fold in the way traditional fabric does. This method requires banding, as seen above. Stationary Grommet Panels, seen above, are purely decorative accents perfect over a functional shade or by themselves to bring more depth, texture, and style to a room.

If you love the look of a drape, but still need the function, then a Panel Drape is the move for you. Our Panel Drapes are made using our exclusive Unifold bead spacing system to keep folds evenly spaced as you slide the drape from side to side on a track system.

Panel Drapes are available in one way or split draw options depending on your needs. While on a functional track, you can purchase decorative rod and finial options separately. There are a variety of stain and paint options to make your rod and finial choices unique to your look.

Child Safety

The Manh Truc Woven Wood Collection has child safe design options. Wand controlled Panel Track and Panel Drape are inherently child safe as there are no exposed cords. Our Roman Shades with CareRING Cordless have been Certified Best for Kids. Child Safety is our number one priority, so you can get the looks you love in safe options for your family.
