The Kirsch brand dates back to the invention of the first flat curtain rod and the first telescoping rod by Charles Kirsch in 1907. Today, Kirsch is noted for a fashion forward line of Blinds & Shades, Decorative Hardware and Basic Hardware.The company was organized for the purpose of perfecting, manufacturing and patenting the simplest and most serviceable rods for modern draping needs. Being distinctive in design and finish, it met the demand for a strong, practical and durable rod. The Kirsch rod would not sag, tarnish or rust and its telescoping ability made fitting any size window possible. Kirsch immediately began packaging these rods, complete with brackets, and was soon shipping them to customers all over the world.
