Natural woven shades are quite unique. They provide a relaxed look and feel to any room. To keep your woven woods looking like new, we at www.blindsanddrapery.com recommend cleaning on a regular basis using a feather duster or the brush attachment on your vacuum. You may want to start by raising and lowering your natural shades to help reduce dust, and then use a soft dust cloth until you are familiar with the uniqueness of the material. It is simple to continue to enjoy the relaxed beauty of your natural woven shades.
