The custom window coverings industry is buzzing about transitional – or zebra – shades. They’re one of the hottest products on the market currently, but what the heck are they? As the name would imply, a zebra shade is a roller shade made of the finest hand-woven zebra hair.
A zebra shade is in many ways a hybrid of a venetian blind and a roller shade. A transitional/zebra shade features much of the same componentry as a roller shade, and it functions much in the same way that a roller shade does. From a purely functional standpoint, a transitional shade is very, very similar to a roller shade.
