LaRicaHome's Shop Policies
Welcome to La Rica, home of quality home accessories. La Rica was born out of my constant and enduring love of color and patterns from a very young age. Everywhere I go, I seek out color, be they in paintings, brightly colored Chinese lanterns, Moroccan tiles, Spanish abanicos (fans), Indian textiles, the attractive displays of fruits and vegetables in a market or the spices in a Turkish bazaar. I want to share these experiences with everyone and bring them right into every home.
In the next few pages you will see an array of shower curtains with many different patterns and colors which I have personally chosen. There is something for everyone. There are paisley prints, flowers, geometric and polka dot patterns, abstract, retro and contemporary designs and a lot more. These are beautiful but classic patterns carefully selected to have lasting value over time. These curtains are luxurious and sumptuous to the touch as evidenced by the tightly woven fibers of each fabric. Each piece is made of fabric printed in the USA and all meticulously handmade by me in my sewing studio in Connecticut much like having them custom made. The curtains are made entirely of decorator’s fabric and are not mass produced so there are only limited pieces of each design. You may spot clean these with water and mild soap however they are also entirely washable should you find the need to wash them. Wash only in cold water and mild soap. Line dry. They may be ironed to remove creases. They are made in the standard 72” x 72” size and have 12 evenly spaced grommets at the top for use with standard shower curtain hooks or beaded ring sets. All of these curtains, which in this website are shown with ball style hooks, are meant to be used with an inner shower liner.
Do not forget to check out our section on window valances, made to match some of our shower curtains, for that overall cohesive look to any bathroom. Sized 52" X 17", these are fully lined and sized to fit windows 24"-48" in width. They are simple in style but elegant looking.
My name is Luisa and I am the owner and proprietor of La Rica. It is my desire to be able to reach out and bring custom made right to your doorstep. I want to welcome you to my website and I hope you enjoy browsing around.
