Pleat Styles

Pair or Panel

All pleat styles are listed below. Please email/call/text with any questions.

Pair or Panel - While it may seem logical that curtains should come in sets of two, curtains do not always come in pairs. They most often come in panels. Panels are a single piece of fabric or one curtain. If you want a typical curtain pair, you will need to buy two panels = 1 Pair.

Stack/Draw

What does "left draw" mean? As you are facing the window, a left-draw rod pulls all the fabric to the left side when the drapery is open. The cord is also on the left so that it is concealed by the drapery at all times.

What does "Right draw" mean? As you are facing the window, a right-draw rod pulls all the fabric to the right side when the drapery is open. The cord is also on the right so that it is concealed by the drapery at all times.

What does "center draw" mean? As you are facing the window, a center-draw rod pulls all the fabric to each side when the drapery is open / 1 panel to the left & 1 panel to the right. The cord is on the left or right so that it is concealed by the drapery at all times. A pair is two panels

Pleated Fullness

Fullness, simply defined, is the ratio of fabric used to cover a set space. Fullness asks the question, 'if I have 100” of space to cover, do I need 100” of fabric, or 200”, or maybe 300”? What will these changes in the amount of fabric mean for the overall aesthetic? This is the essence of fullness.

Fullness is typically determined by the project’s budget, design and/or the brand’s standards.

Typical fullness is set at a 2 to 1 ratio or 200% fullness. Meaning there is twice as much fabric as the area being covered. Therefore a 100" space would be covered by 200" of fabric. Where does all of that extra fabric go?  That is often the most confusing part and changes depending on the pleat style  you are working with.
