Initial idea from Vanessa from Bern:
Dear Urban Change Lab,
I am looking for curtains with African Wax Prints (for two rooms). (Light) Green and purple should be an essential color for the one room, and purple and orange for the other. The green/purple one should be 240cm long and 110 cm wide, and I need two items of the same size, and the purple/orange one (just one item) should be 200cm long and 140cm wide.
The top and the ends should just be sewed up.
Please let me know what you think if there is a possibility to get this done.
Thank you and I hope that you are keeping safe in this uncertain times.
The story of the curtains with African Wax Prints:
Thank you for your response.
I am pretty open re the future steps and designs. The price for the curtains should be around 250€.
What do you think?
All the best,
As I don’t use rings for installation but little clips, I won’t need holes or lining. I’ll send you a picture.
Would that work?
Yes it will work. Thank you for the guidance. I'm ready to begin. Have a good day and stay safe. I wish you good health.
Thank you for these wonderful pictures and apologies for my late reply!
I think the fabric on picture nine works really well for the smaller curtain (the one with orange, blue and brown and these small signs…).
For the larger curtain, we need to make some changes as we now have a painting in the room which has red, yellow and cherry, so green will not work anymore fur the curtain. Further, large flowers are not really my style. Maybe you could look for a fabric which includes red/purple/violet and/or maybe yellow?
And, I have now decided to also order a curtain for my third room, would you also be willing to work with me on that? Then I could send you the size and color suggestions (and we of course have to update the payment).
Thank you, hope you are staying safe and healthy,
Thank you so much and great that you are willing to work on the third curtain, too.
The colors should be green, yellow and maybe some black. The curtain should also be 200cm long and 140cm wide. As this one would need rings for installation, I will send you the sizes (for the rings) very soon (need to take the old one down first and make the measurements).
Please also let me know how we can update the price on this page (I did not find the information).
Thank you so much for working with me on this idea and I hope you are keeping safe and healthy in these difficult times.
