Add softness and texture to your windows
Pleated shades are made of woven and non-woven fabrics that are pleated or folded horizontally in an accordion style. The fabric adds softness and the pleats add texture to make pleated shades an elegant complement to windows. Choose from contemporary, casual or traditional patterns. Fabric textures range from subtle solid weaves to metallized fabrics that block the sun’s rays and provide energy-efficient insulation. Special backings are available to increase privacy or block out the sun making lightweight fabric more energy efficient. For a whole new perspective in decorating, pleated shade coordinates let you match pleated shades with vertical blinds, and create top treatments and custom furnishings with cut fabric yardage.
