A black and white stripe fits perfectly into any Paris themed room thanks to the Français Navy, who introduced what is known as the Breton stripe in 1858, as a new uniform for their sailors at sea with 21 vertical blue and white stripes representing Napoleon Bonaparte’s victories in war against other European powers.

Fashion icon, Coco Chanel liked the look of the Breton stripe on a trip to the exclusive Riveria, the playground of the the rich and famous and was drawn to the attire of the local fishermen who donned the Breton stripe with pride. The inventor of the little black dress knew a sure thing when she saw it and soon after celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and even infamous painter, Picasso were being photographed wearing this stylish sailor stripe.

What happens in fashion generally transcends to home decor and the French stripe became an instant visual hit in beautiful interiors where the stripe was often portrayed in a horizontal mode like you see on this dynamic curtain panel measuring 50″ in width x 94″ in length with a 3″ rod pocket, that can be ordered in a longer size if needed.The fabric is 100% polyester and it is recommended you dry clean only.

This curtain provides a solid black out so you can sleep during the day or block that annoying street light out of your bedroom. The quality is good with the black stripe measuring 3/1/2″ in width just in needed to know.

Black and white stripes are always a striking effect and will catch the eye immediately when you enter a room. Whether you’re creating a sensational backdrop to a black and white or glamorous Paris theme, these curtains have the Ooh la la factor, synonymous with impeccable French style!
