The lining plays the role of protecting the drape from Ultraviolet rays while maintaining the quality of the fabric. Since drapes are in constant contact with the sun fading can occur if protective measures are not taken. Linings in drapes can also add certain flair to the overall appearance of it. Different embroideries within the drape can change the mood and feel of an entire room.

This is especially helpful for rooms that are facing the sun when it rises. Drapes also have the ability to act as insulation.
