Handmade, luxury custom drapes.

Your home is worth the investment in custom drapery. Trading Places uses only heavyweight, high-quality, 54"-wide fabric – the foundation of a well-made custom drape.

Department stores and online discount retailers offer ready-made drapery panels using 48” wide fabrics, and while this may reduces costs, it also reduces quality. The extra width in our fabric allows us to create well-structured, handmade drapery with:

  • Double Side Hems: Double side hems not only look better but, because we are doubling the amount of fabric on each edge, double side hems will add years of life to your drape.
  • Double Bottom Hems: Another critical feature of quality drapes is a 4" Double Bottom Hem. Again, we double the amount of fabric at the bottom hem to add weight, fullness and a longer life.

Trading Places uses only quality Linings and Interlinings

We insist on quality linings because we know how quickly the sun can fade colour and damage fabric if unprotected. A high quality lining not only makes your drapery look and feel better, but it is also critical to ensuring your drapes will not fade or disintegrate from exposure to the sun.

You may find cheaper drapes elsewhere. But if you want gorgeous, high-quality custom drapes you will be proud to hang in your home – you won't find a better value than Trading Places.

Your custom draperies will be created in our own sewing work room, and of course all of our products are 100% guaranteed. If there is a problem with your drapes we’ll fix them or remake them. Should you ever need them hemmed or altered in the future we can do that too!
