As window design and window décor evolved, the need for a curtain rod with the ability to hold heavy fabric and accommodate large curtain pockets emerged, and spurred Kirsch’s invention of the Continental Pocket Rod. The Continental I is 4.5″ wide to carry curtains with a 5.5″ pocket and provides a unique shirred heading look. It works especially well as a valance for a variety of undertreatments.
The Continental II is a 2.5″ rod that slips through a curtain with a 3″ pocket. The Continental II is a smaller version of the Continental I rod, designed to provide a better-proportioned look at doors and smaller windows.
A Continental II flexible corner kit is also available.
