Clean look. A rippledfold drape stacks back neatly, taking up less space than pleated drapes and bringing in more light. They look fabulous on tall windows because they are loose, long and soft.
Be aware that because of the gap between the wave and the track it does not control light completely so it is suited best for public spaces where a full black-out is not needed. If you want to keep light out completely, use a hard treatment inside, mounted in the window. When the ripple fold is closed, you will just have relaxing waves to look at instead of the hard treatment behind them.
How the wave works. A straight hemmed drape with stiffened nylon snap tape sewn onto the top is snapped to carriers on the track. The carriers are evenly spaced, creating smooth waves in the fabric. It looks great on both sides of the window.
I am a huge fan of this type of drapery, especially for unlined fabrics. Here's why.
