This shade can be ordered with a “looped option” or “tear-drop option”. Here the shade has soft looped folds that create dimension and drama.
Shades are usually opened from the bottom up, but can have the popular top down feature as well.

This liner is tacked on flat behind the shade and offers additional light control and privacy.
