Some neighbourhood shops selling curtains have string curtains too. And they're usually comparatively cheaper - $39 for 30 inch (width)x more than 2m (length). The length is usually very long and is up to you to cut.
There's a shop at Sembawang Shopping Centre (3rd floor) selling string curtains from Korea and China. The ones from Korea are slightly more expensive - like $45 if I remember correctly. Can't remember the exact dimensions but definitely wider and longer than a standard HDB bedroom door. There's a curtain shop on the same floor selling string curtains too but I didn't enquire from them though.
The other shop @ SSC sells 1m string curtain @ $49. It claims the string curtain is from Turkey. But it looks similar to the China string curtain on display at the Meexx shop (that sells the Korea one).
Anyone got the same reply?
Hi, didn't really ask that shop but same opinion as you, it look identical to the China made.
Once we stepped in Meexx, the lady did not hardsell her products but instead started an nice conversation with us and she really patience to explained to us about curtains. Anyway, my hubby feel that the Korea's material is softer and feel better so we just go ahead and brought 2 sets without browsing further.
Yup. The lady was nicer, compared to the one in the other shop...
But there is no stock for the color that I want for the Korea curtain...sighs...I searched Clementi, SSC and TPY...still cant get what I want..some were too exp, some no stock..
Hi, you must be looking for the pure white?
Did you ask her when stock coming in? Maybe can request her to reserve?
Actually today, going there to get quote for curtain but last minute tied up by the sofa delivery guys.
Well, saw 1 shop in JB (Jusco Tebaus) selling, quite good material but very ex. Think around RM$350.
Length think is 3m(H) x 2.5m(w).
Also planning to get my colleague to buy from Chengdu but the export stock (europe made) there also very ex., cost rmb1400. Anyway now China-made is a no-no to me. The sample they brought back was similar to the Meexx store china import.
Now if planning to get extra set must source around for more lobang. keep in loop.
not meant to offence anyone, so far for me, I had yet got the luck to come across the good ones for china made. I had friends who brought good ones from beijing, but too bad I don't had any contact who going there at any nearest date, so no luck for me.
btw, the ones my colleague planned to buy for me is 3m(h) x 2.5m(w) quality wise don't feel soft enough but colours are limited, so I still undecisive whether to buy or not. Oh, it cost around S$80.
I've got 2 sets of dark brown string curtain to sell.
Each set is approx. 86cm (length) & 3m (height).
These are brand new. Selling it due to change of color theme.
Price for two sets = $80
There is a 'pocket' that allows you to hang up using a curtain rod, or u can use normal curtain hooks to hang it up like normal curtain.
For those interested, pls kindly contact me at solo_adel@hotmail.
michelle: i suggest u go buy from those neighbourhood curtain shops. definitely cheaper there than those town areas. Some mention joo chiat complex got sell. I got mine from a neighbourhood curtain shop in Tamp for $55. HTHs
I just put up the strings curtains recently. But as we needed a little flexibility for us to hang other type of curtains too, we din opt for using velcro and we just use the normal curtain rod from IKEA instead. The string curtains help us to partition the room away from my work desk and perhaps future kids as we are staying with in laws so space is mainly constrain within a room itself. A platform bed is also used to help us save space too. Hope it helps other couples who runs into potential space prob like me n my hubby if they stay wif their in laws too

Has anyone seen 'string curtains' anywhere?
They're like a sheer curtain made up of... string (sort of)!
I've googled, and found something like it at Textile Traders, but not quite like we saw in a display home at the weekend.
The top of the ones we saw can be attached to a curtain track. Any help would be appreciated.
