Hold-backs give an attractive, stylish line to curtains when they are drawn back. Curtain holdbacks allow more light into the room and stop curtains from fading at thes edges.
Hold backs are rigid and come in the form of a disc or attractive shape on the end of a short rod which you drape the curtain over. Some are like large hooks which you tuck the curtain behind. You may be able to match the holdback to the curtain pole. Otherwise look for designs that complement your room's style.
