Rainbow Slide Curtains

We love vintage slides. We’re always picking them up at markets and can be entertained for hours investigating their contents. There is just something so enticing about looking at mysterious photos from years gone by. That’s why we love the idea of rainbow slide curtains. By connecting vintage 35mm slides together, these snapshots into a previous world are preserved as functional art in the form of dramatic window treatments.
