At the Heart of Hartmann&Forbes – Safety by Design
November spotlights Child Safety, but for us, safety and health are at the forefront of everything we do, every day of the year.  We make key decisions throughout the design, weaving, and crafting process of our natural windowcoverings to ensure our products do not endanger those around them. Our Safety by Design™ Initiative is meant to communicate these safety considerations.


Our Dedication to Safety
We remain steadfast in our dedication to make windowcoverings that meet or exceed safety guidelines as prescribed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA). We conduct ongoing testing to ensure that our windowcoverings are safe to operate, and continually strive to research and engineer innovative solutions and techniques to further improve shade safety.

Contributing to In-Home Health
We minimize the use of additives that may off-gas and reduce indoor air quality. We use natural techniques to achieve rich color tones and low or no VOC paints, stains, and adhesives whenever possible. As a result, our products have a minimal impact on air quality within an interior environment. 

Cordless Innovations 
Our award-winning Rollerfold™ Style combines the aesthetic beauty of a roman-fold shade with the sleek performance and child safety features of a Roller Style shade. This patented-innovative style is Best for Kids Certified when automated. Learn more.

Our Cordless Rollershade is operated by a smooth, silent spring system and delivers a simple and safe solution for spaces that solicit a cordless choice. With one easy pull, this rollershade lifts in a quiet and controlled motion. Learn more.

Eliminating all pull-cords with shade automation is the ultimate in safe, intelligent, and effortless shade functionality. Learn more.

“We have drawn our inspiration from this view of nature, and executed our design with a nod to both classicism and a little of the far east. References to flowers are evident in the art, furniture and lighting. We are using geodes as accent pieces, botanical prints frame the bed wall, integrated with architectural moldings and an accent wallpaper depicting clouds is featured in the bathroom,” said Mikulich to Aspire Design & Home.

"Our intention is to offer an intuitive response to the mystical beauty expressed through nature – to help you create sanctuary through natural design. In this collection, we played with the subdued colors of nature, shades of light and shadow and natural fibers of rich texture that, when manipulated by the handloom, express quiet, organic designs that convey a sense of calm." – Michael Jones, Founder

A modern meets mid-century aesthetic, offering architectural detail with balance and versatility. Featured in LUXE Magazine, Interior Designer Jaclyn Christensen, then of IDF Studios, creates a refreshing design highlighting No.95 Basin – Saru Basin roman shades from the Tailored-to-Size Grassweave Collection.

“Without taking away from the incredible architectural details, I wanted something for the windows that was warm, both in color and texture, while simple enough so that the furnishings can really pop," said Christensen. "Saru Basin is one of my favorite Hartmann&Forbes weaves for its simplicity but also because it’s extremely versatile and will stand the test of time."  

Christensen specified Splitview™ shades allowing privacy in the kitchen, while in the breakfast nook and living room she opted for Traditional Style Shades providing a lived-in luxury appeal. The natural jute fiber of these Saru Basin shades perfectly complements the aesthetic of her design. 

The Tailored-to-Size Collections are beneficial for designers requiring a shorter lead time: 
Tailored-to-Size Grassweave Collection – a timeless textured collection made of legacy natural fibers exuding a relaxed and comfortable charm. 
Tailored-to-Size Collection Papyrusweave – a well-traveled collection of wood-pulp fiber designs, capturing stories and techniques found in global weaving communities.
Size Collection Colourweave – an artfully infused portfolio of weaves made of the inside peel of sustainable bamboo and custom painted to order by local artisans in modern and traditional matchstick patterns.
