Also known as plantation blinds or colonial blinds, pinoleum works extremely well as a natural insulator and has excellent solar and shading properties. Providing moderate privacy, depending on the density and tightness of the weave, and gently filtered light. Allowing you to conserve heat, control temperature and dramatically reduce the amount of sunlight without completely blocking the light out. This is particularly effective in a conservatory, orangery, garden room or sunroom. Pinoleum conservatory blinds create a very natural look and feel, whilst protecting you and your furnishings from the effects of direct sunlight.
Ballauff™ have been manufacturing the original pinoleum blind woven fabric since 1872 at its factory just outside of Paris. As the inventor of the pinoleum blind, they have continued to develop better ways of producing the reeds, bamboo, rattan, sea grass and jute, and new methods of weaving them to produce a truly stunning range of classis designs. With over 30 varieties of bamboo grasses and many different finishes, their variety and versatility means they can be processed to produce a beautifully woven, almost textile finish.
The environmental effects involved in the production of original Ballauff™ French pinoleum are taken very seriously indeed and as such all hardwoods and timber come from sustainable forests and sources that have either, OLB, PEFC or FSC certification. Grasses and bamboos are also harvested in a different way. If left alone the growth of bamboo will slow down, but if harvested and cut regularly it actually flourishes and grows faster. They are also fully treated with fungicides and insecticides before being shipped to ensure that the finished pinoleum blinds will arrive in perfect condition.
The original bois-tiss, or woven pinoleum roller blinds and pinoleum roman blinds were thin reeds of hardwood woven and stitched together, whilst the more modern and contemporary weaves and designs produce finishes that combine hemp, jute, hard grasses, sea grasses, bamboo and fabric. Utilising these different materials and colour combinations means that a wide range of beautifully natural and stylish window blinds and shades can be produced that will enhance any interior design scheme. Particularly when the natural reed tones are combined with the red, brown and green reeds to create truly stunning patterns that will give any window a highly individual feel and look.
