Drapery Pleating Styles

A pleat is a small section of fabric at the panel heading that has been folded and sewn in place to create fullness.
Our unique pleated styles will give you the custom drapery look to fit your decor.
- Avoid the pared down and plain look of ready-made (bought off-the-shelf) pleated draperies.
- Pleats create uniform proportion and spacing at the panel heading
- Pleats allow the smooth operation of the drapery panel while opening and closing on hardware create a smaller, cleaner stack back then other types of headings.
- Pleats provide uniformly spaced draping.
- Fullness of the panel can be manipulated by adjusting the size of the pleats, the spacing between pleats, and the number of folds in each pleat.
- When using fabrics with large patters or repeats, take into consideration how the pattern will be affected by the pleat.
