How to order roller blind stiffening fabric

The fabric is 180cm wide, and this width can be used for the drop, if required. This means if the fabric you need for your blind is 90cm wide x 150 depth, you would need to order 1m of fabric. If your blind is shorter you may be able to use our 150cm roller blind backing. When measuring, we recommend adding a minimum of  30cm to the finished drop of your window. This will then allow enough fabric to roll around at the top, and to finish the blind at the bottom. LONGER BLINDS: If you blind is longer than 150 cm, then you will need to order the finished length plus 30cm. For the width we suggest an additional 10cm to allow you to get a good seal at the edge and then cut down to size. Full details are at How to Measure for a Roller Blind

    I needed something to back some fabric I already had to give the roller blind I was making have a bit more substance. I had never heard of this backing its brilliant. I took it slowly while I was ironing the backing on and followed the instructions on your site it looks very professional. I did use some fray check on the edges just to make sure it wouldn’t need any more attention than that. I would definitely recommend it

    I used this to refurbish a roller blind with fabric to match my new curtains and to replace the fabric strips of vertical blinds. Thank you for your excellent instructions which I followed to the letter. The biggest challenge I had was working out where to press it safely, otherwise everything worked really well. I used a piece I had left to make an owl doorstop, turning it through was an act of faith but it looks wonderful and stands beautifully! Many thanks!
