Overly Sensitive?

Every so often, I get a call from someone who suffers from being extremely allergic to chemicals in their home environment, and they want to know if Cooper Lace curtains will be safe for them.  Their questions typically focus on fabric content and and post-weaving treatments such as Scotch-guarding (which is kind of ironic, as our lace curtains are woven in Scotland...)

Anyway, our Exclusives line is comprised of 100% cotton, with no synthetics. Our Historics and Traditionals lines are 95% cotton 5% polyester, but note that this tiny amount of synthetic fiber is the stitching on the edging.  We will be happy to loan you one or more of our curtains if you wish to test for adverse reactions.

The are no harsh chemicals used in finishing our lace curtain panels; if need be, a gentle washing in cold water before hanging is suggested for those who prefer to do this with
all fabrics entering their households.  If you or someone you care for is highly chemically sensitive and you have any questions about our lace, please call me at 888-433-7801 or email me at
