Does anyone have advice for acquiring or making inexpensive curtains that are white on the window side and black or very dark on the interior side? We want to hang heavy curtains from ceiling to floor over our big windows. They should eliminate all light when drawn. I saw perfect examples of what I want...about 50 years ago when I was a kid!

Thanks!

I've never seen the Kume curtains before. Now I'm considering whether my sad sewing skills are up to the task. Not so much for winter use, but in summer we use curtains to help block out the summer heat.

Lucky for you (and me) there is no sewing involved
