What makes a curtain or window treatment blackout? When referring to the term blackout, it means that the window treatment is made with a foam or opaque backing.

This fabric keeps them light and effective. The NICETOWN Grommet Blackout Curtains, 2-Panels are made from triple-weave fabric and as an added feature are wrinkle-free.

DWYM Fun Fact

The history of blackout curtains started during World War II. The enemies would fly over and drop bombs at night. As a result, the government established ‘blackouts’ so the enemy couldn’t see the lights on in homes. Every household had to keep their blackout curtains closed at night so no light could escape. Britain enforced the blackouts starting in 1939 to confuse the enemy pilots trying to navigate at night. This wasn’t easy for those who had stone-constructed homes or metal window frames. It became a burden for many to hang the heavy cotton fabric and to also remember to close all curtains at night.  Car headlights were even partially covered and as a result, car accidents jumped to a significant high. Crime also had a significant increase during the blackout period.
