The Blind Alley, Custom Drapery and Window Covering Specialists serving Bellevue, Washington and the Greater Seattle area since 1984.



  Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Window Shades are operated by a specially designed clutch mechanism attached to a wear-resistant, woven and beaded cord forming a continuous loop. Pulling easily on the cord causes the clutch to rotate the metal roller tube, which raises or lowers the shade and holds it securely in place at any chosen position. The metal roller tube on all shades is always wrapped with fabric, even when fully lowered. The bottom bar is also wrapped in fabric, with select fabrics offering the option of adding a decorative hem with trim.
