Vescom recognizes the value that customization can add to today’s international contract interiors. That’s why we offer architects and designers bespoke material solutions, including digital printing for curtains and sheers.
Our digitally printed curtains and sheers can fulfil a need that’s poetic or practical – or both. They can help to determine the atmosphere and identity of a space, imbuing it with tactility and comfort while regulating light and temperature. They can soften reverberation and the space itself, connect or divide a room. They offer the opportunity to adjust spaces to support productivity and wellbeing – all with a personalized aesthetic.

What style of imagery is suitable for Curtain+Print? Get as creative as you like because any look is possible. Whatever architects and designers bring to the table to fit in with their creative concept, Vescom’s expert design team will ensure that their two-dimensional imagery can come to life as a fully integrated textile.
Whether architects and designers provide us with imagery that’s realistic or abstract – a pattern, structure or motif, or even text-based – we will translate it into a curtain or sheer fabric of the perfect size, colour and quality, in no time at all.
Pairing your choice of image with the right base surface has a huge impact on the end result. Certain material structures can add extra depth and tactility to the surface, creating a more expressive look and feel in an interior. Some of our Curtain+Print fabrics resemble linen or cotton, whereas others produce a silk-like sheen. Transparent options offer a lighter touch, optically connecting a space while creating a flexible physical border.
The use of curtains and sheers in interiors has myriad advantages. They can tell part of a holistic colour and material story, soak spaces in comfort and quietness, connect or divide a room, and block or dim natural light. Making the most of these benefits by achieving the right light, temperature and sound within a space is a delicate balance, and each space has its own requirements. Vescom Curtain+Print fabrics undergo various tests to prove their level of light, temperature and sound regulation, making it clear which product is the best fit for which conditions. Our FR-embedded curtains and sheers pass all European and American flame retardancy tests. For specific details about our testing procedures and scores, see the Curtains & Sheers manual.
Vescom’s printable curtains and sheers look and feel completely natural yet are made from flame retardant polyester to meet the strictest global standards for public buildings. Our flame retardancy is embedded into the yarn itself rather than applied as a finish, guaranteeing the FR quality remains permanently contained within our fabrics.
Our Curtain+Print fabrics are woven on a double loom, meaning they can be railroaded to achieve a seamless and cost-effective floor-to-ceiling solution. The selection offers something for every functional need, from acoustics to superior hygiene to light and temperature control. Plus, with an array of different structured surfaces with varying degrees of solidity and transparency, the offering also accommodates every look and feel.
Our digitally printed curtains and sheers are available in a range of seven different structured fabrics – a mix of dense and open weaves, solid and transparent options, and matte and sheen yarns. From the natural look of transparent sheer Swan+Print to the tight weave of dim out curtain Bedra+Print to acoustic offering Marmara+Print, which features a matte and a glossy side.
All our printable curtains and sheers are woven on a double loom, giving them a printable width of between 270 cm and 290 cm. To achieve a seamless and cost-effective floor-to-ceiling solution, double-width fabrics can be rotated 90° so that their width covers the height of the room. This is also called railroaded installation.
Whether you’re an architect or interior designer searching for a customized curtain solution that balances a room’s light or temperature, minimizes sound disturbance while maximizing visual connections and daylight, or provides complete privacy, Vescom’s collection of high-performance printable curtain and sheer fabrics has the ideal option for every space in the contract market, helping you to combine individualized aesthetics with high functionality.
Hotel rooms should enable a good night’s sleep – a factor Vescom takes into account with black outs and dim outs that restrict light from entering a space. Our cost-effective floor-to-ceiling solutions ensure the best possible coverage and a seamless aesthetic. Through digital printing, our black outs and dim outs can be personalized to complement a hotel’s concept story with individual patterns and imagery.
Digitally printed curtains can foster a calming, inspiring and comfortable ambience to support the wellbeing of their inhabitants. Images of nature, for example, can contribute to patients’ physical and mental health, while hand-drawn imagery can add a much-needed human touch. The ability to wash and clean curtains is crucial for contract interiors – spaces like hospitals and aged-care facilities, where hygiene is non-negotiable. Textiles must be washed at a minimum temperature of 60°C to kill bacteria, viruses and dust mites. Most of our printable curtains and sheers are washable at 70°C. Despite their need for hygiene, such spaces shouldn’t feel sterile and bland.
Vescom’s acoustic sheers, which absorb up to five times more sound than other sheers, are ideal for creating a flexible physical border in spaces such as restaurants. Unlike heavy, cumbersome fabrics, Vescom’s acoustic sheers offer all the advantages of a sound-absorbing material while maintaining visual connections and maximizing the transmission of natural light within an interior. Use digital printed curtains and sheers to emphasize and enhance the mood and atmosphere of dining spaces.
Our printable acoustic option is: Marmara+Print.
With Vescom Customize, you can personalize not only curtains but also our wallcoverings, making it possible to share a brand’s visual story across multiple surfaces throughout an interior. Our expert in-house design team will guide you through the customization process, ensuring the scale is perfectly aligned with each different material.
Creative, customized curtains and sheers shouldn’t be limited to the land. Think of cruise ships: giant floating playgrounds where inspiration and imagination can run wild. Vescom Curtain+Print can enhance the onboard experience, vividly conveying a vessel’s theme, brand or both.
Vescom has a long history of designing and producing woven textiles, and we’ve been building on this knowledge ever since. Because we engineer most of our own textiles in our German weaving mill, we have extensive knowledge about fabric construction and can guarantee the quality of our results.

In other words, we do much more than simply print images onto materials: our expert design team will determine the best way to translate your specific imagery into a curtain or sheer fabric with the perfect colour and/or pattern repeat in your preferred function.
Vescom’s combination of expertly trained staff, advanced printers, extensive knowledge about fabric construction and state-of-the-art technologies ensures the highest quality results.
