Flat Fold

  • Constructed, so the fabric gathers behind the shade as it is raised, maintaining a neat, flat appearance
  • Cords run through grommets for maximum durability
  • Allows close mounting to the window when the lifting mechanism is placed in front of the panel

Soft Fold

  • Curving fabric folds are created by hobbling the face fabric to the lining
  • Highlights the draping quality of the fabric

Custom Options

  • Constructed with rings attached to the fabric
  • Other styles of gathers, pleats, and rolls available (Fan, Balloon, Bottom Swag, Austrian)

Draw System
