Austrian Blinds can make very pretty window dressings indeed, and are somewhat more decorative than their more plain cousin, the Roman Blind. They work exactly the same way as Roman Blinds, the main difference being that the fabric is ruched, or gathered, across the width to give a much fuller feel. Because of this, we do not use battens in pockets to create the folds, we simply use a small eye sewn on to the back of the fabric. This creates a pleasant draped effect when the blind is pulled up, without being overly fussy. We recommend with this type of blind using a lighter, more delicate type of fabric than you would with a Roman Blind, and without the use of a lining, as Austrian Blinds are more of an Art Deco window fashion than really offering anything in the way of practical functionality.
