These curtains are handmade in collaboration with our dear friend, Carmen, a senior citizen herself as well as a Senior Citizens rights activist. All profits from the sell of these curtains goes to Carmen for being such an inspiration to us in her continual efforts to do so much for the community. More about Carmen's story at the bottom. =)

Size: 56" wide X 88" long. **Can be custom made into any size so please send us a message for a quote :) ***When considering what curtain size you need: For Length, please measure from your curtain rod down to where you'd like the curtains to stop (right under the window, above the ground, touching the ground etc). For Width, consider adding about 10 inches than the width of your window for a more rippled effect when the curtains are pulled across. & please reach out if you need any help at all deciding!

*Handmade with <3 in="" long="" beach="" california="" br="">Made from Natural Hemp & Organic Cotton, these curtains are breathable & can improve air quality of your home when used throughout. They create beautiful natural light & mood by allowing light to filter in without being sheer at all. Also great for regulating temperature coming through windows; not allowing cold air to seep through & don't trap hot air in. The curtains are a softened suede weave. Perfect for people with chemical sensitivities as these have no added chemicals or synthetic materials.
Carmen has worked as a both a private & Washington State attorney for 20+ years before she went full-time pursuing her many creative passions. She's done everything from owning a gourmet cooking store to starting numerous children's clothing lines. She loves to paint, weave & mostly sew. She has pursued non-profit work as a hobby her whole life making annual visits to orphanages in Ukraine & adopting a Ukrainian orphan herself. Not to mention adopting a homeless Ukrainian dog named Lamby & getting Lamby papers back to the US! Philanthropy & activism is a lifestyle for 65 year old Carmen & she is truly so talented. This woman has drafted constitutions for other countries & now she drafts letters & documents to congress to fight for Senior Citizen rights in areas of healthcare and basic human rights. We feel so fortunate to get to work with her to bring our passion for beautiful hemp things to life, things such as these amazing Hemp Burlap Curtains that are now gracefully complimenting our windows.
Despite being so talented and having given back so much, Carmen finds herself as a senior citizen who struggles to make ends meet through her sewing and random teaching passions. For this reason and because we love the curtains that we've made in collaboration with her so much, we decided to make them available for the public to buy dedicating all the profits to help her continue to make a living while representing those that are most often unheard like senior citizens. Not to mention, Carmen is vibrant, loving, funny & full of amazing energy! If you've met Carmen, we're sure you'll likely want to support her in the way we're compelled to.
On behalf of Carmen, thank you so much for the support! <3 div="">
