The GRC Difference

New customers often ask us, why is GRC a better product? We have highlighted a few differentiators to explain why our shades are truly unique.


Grace Richey Clarke window shades provide a versatile, elegant approach to window coverings. With what we call “allowing the outdoors in,” we offer customers the most effective solution for light control and privacy, without eliminating views of the outside. We use natural threads, fibers and woods to create a wide variety of styles and colors. Additionally, we can use either attached or unattached linings to achieve heat, light, privacy and noise control. Many styles can be woven in single or double density, controlling the amount of light penetration and privacy available. Although we offer a wide variety of fiber color selections, custom fiber and warp thread colors are available.

Lead time

Though we suggest allowing 8 weeks for production, we understand the need for providing design clients with the products they crave in the time frame they demand. For this reason, we invite the challenge to meet special time requirements that our clients may have.


Grace Richey Clarke shades can be woven up to 144” in width and to almost any length. Mitering of shades for bay windows is available. Bowed, curved and custom shaped windows can easily be dealt with using a flexible header. Our manufacturing department works directly with installers and workrooms to template windows that are bowed, curved, or that require any special shaping.

Our Technical Side

Grace Richey Clarke offers a variety of style options and control mechanisms to create the perfect shade for nearly all environments. All of our fiber can be ordered for Roman Shade operation or as panels. Many fibers can also be utilized in roller shade operation. We offer pulley control, cord locks, continuous clutch operation and an extensive array of motorization options.

Product Samples

Individual pattern and color samples can be sent upon request to design professionals. Please contact us by phone or place a request through our website for samples.


Every shade that Grace Richey Clarke manufactures is hand woven in the USA with a “finished edge”. Custom weaving to the precise dimension of each window provides a differentiated look that does not fray or wear as is the case with inferior “chopped to order” shades.



Grace Richey Clarke is pleased to offer a broad spectrum of motorization offerings. We offer battery, low voltage and line voltage motors for retrofit and new construction environments. We utilize motors for roman fold, roller shades and top down shades. We produce shades with motors installed or “prepped for motorization” where a work room or authorized motor dealer installs the motor. Our motorized shades can be easily integrated into home automatization systems or used as stand-alone shades.

Cord cleat

Pulley or cord locks are provided standard with each shade. Either option can be used on headrails as narrow as ¾” in depth. Cord locks can be used on shades up to 70” in width. Pulley controls can be used on shades up to approximately 144” wide.

Pulley lock

Pulley locks are provided standard with each shade. Either option can be used on headrails as narrow as ¾” in depth. Pulley controls can be used on shades up to approximately 144” wide.

Our clutch systems can be fitted with plastic or metal continuous control loops in a variety of colors.
