Hi there,

im after a set of magnetic blinds/curtains for the back of my van that just pack away when not being used.

Does anyone know anywhere that stocks or makes them?

Nope but I thought of making some using old fridge seals sewn into hems... never got around to it but I reckon it would work well

Get some neodymium magnets (ebay). They're very strong and will do a great job holding the curtain solidly in place.

Make them or get them made out of blackout material or whatever and sew in some pockets for the magnets.
