The Butterfly and the Stage Coach Warm Window shades are very similar in construction and we will go through both together. The only difference between these shades is how the shades are held open. Both shades are quick solutions for drafty windows around the house, in campers and boats. The Butterfly and The Stage Coach Warm Windows offer a decorative flair. You have the option of using an outside or hybrid mount. Magnets within the seams of the shade and along the wall provide a secure energy efficient seal and the shades are made functional with a tie or tabs achieving the Butterfly look or the Stage Coach look.
