I had a request for maniples, and this is what I created (each is lined with a satin fabric of matching color):
I have only made one funeral pall, and it was a big project. This one is made of black damask with a black satin lining.

it really does have quite a luxurious feel and weight to it.
A dossal curtain may be used behind an altar that does not have a reredos. Historically, it was a long embroidered hanging which matched the altar antependium in color and style.
Here are some examples from a small private chapel:
In the above project, the curtain was threaded onto a wooden rod which was then mounted on brackets on the wall. There was also a wooden rod at the bottom of the curtain to provide weight that would make the curtain hang properly.
