What are Ripplefold Draperies?
Ripplefold curtains do not have traditional pleats. Instead, the fabric makes gentle S curves, forming soft folds. The fabric is sewn flat with a snap tape or hook that attaches to a special track that allows for a pre-determined fullness. Ripplefold panels are sometimes referred to as S pleats or S folds.
The track on Ripplefold drapes is always exposed. This allows for the drape to fold back and forth below the track for a graceful look. This style is often used in contemporary settings such as in the examples pictured below.
