Need advice: Best fabric for white cafe curtains.
They're not that common these days, and well made are shockingly expensive for someone with 10 windows in the kitchen and another 6 in the adjacent sitting room. So I want to make my own for the first time in a quarter century and really need advice on what fabric to use.
White, of course. Durable, long-lasting, easy care, and very (re)washable (some will be near the stove). Hangs prettily. Just thick enough to provide some privacy but still allow a nice diffused light through. And not expensive. A magazine article with cafes made of handkerchief-quality linen definitely got my attention briefly (they were nice!), but it's not to be.
A good source would also be very helpful. Thanks very much for any help you can give.
