Zebra blinds, zebra shades, or dual sheer shades are made with alternating bands of light filtering or room darkening sheer material that cycles through as you raise and lower them. Made up of two layers of alternating soft, sheer fabric, these shades can be customized to offer privacy while still letting light through your window.
Zebra shades are available in a large spectrum of neutral colors for both light filtering and room darkening. Additionally, zebra shades are lightweight and roll up into a narrow cassette. Not only are they great for covering large windows up to 94 inches wide, they also won’t obstruct your view when fully open, an ideal choice for large, picturesque windows.

Here are a few things to consider before purchasing zebra shades.
- The fabric of Zebra Shades is not the most ideal for areas of high humidity such as a bathroom or kitchen; consider the distance between the shades and the sink, shower, or bathtub.
