How to use a sari for curtains

The beautiful colours and embroidered patterns of a sari look wonderful when sunlight streams through the fabric. Most saris have a decorated band on one end that is designed to hang loose down the wearer's back. This band can be best displayed by making a panel curtain which fits inside the window frame and is gathered onto a rod at both the top and bottom of the window treatment. The bottom tension rod holds the lightweight sari fabric in place. This window treatment looks like a piece of framed art.
