About us

Lisa KellyThe Drape Maker (formally Lisa Kelly Window Furnishings) is proudly owned and operated by Lisa Kelly.  Lisa found her passion for crafting beautiful soft furnishings 15 years ago whilst working the machines, then managing the workroom of one of the South Islands leading Interior design stores.

Lisa started the business in 2012 and has been providing curtain and Roman blind making to a range of clients ever since.  From some of Christchurch’s leading interior designers, retail/hospitality fit outs and many happy homeowners, no job is too big or too small.  Our made to measure service can range from making a cushion right through to measuring, sourcing fabric and tracks, making and finally installing the finished product. 

The Drape Maker readymades came to life from clients coming to us disheartened about the range on offer elsewhere.  By looking at the fabrics that come through our workroom it was obvious that linen, linen sheers and linen look sheers were the majority.  We are able to source a limited supply of these fabrics from some of New Zealand’s leading fabric suppliers.  The curtains are made in our workroom here in Christchurch.  Being a small team Lisa oversees every aspect of the manufacturing process, ensuring precision and attention to detail.  Our readymades really are designer curtains at a fraction of the price.

The team at The Drape Maker look forward to helping you with your next project.  Whether it be a house lot of made to measure for a new build or a pair of readymades for that weekend renovation, we are here to help, contact us today here.
