Belgium Linen Drapery Panels

I love the way this rod travels around the room seamlessly but the less than perfect finish on the imported linen troubled me a bit.

Belgium linen has to be handled very carefully.  It seems as though it will wrinkle out of spite just because you LOOK at it.  Ugh!  
I've since learned that clients expect the imperfect finish and they like a little wrinkling.

The Silk Fabric and Speckled Sheer are from Kravet.  The rod is Select.  Give us a call if you are interested.  We'd love to make your drapery as well as supply  the fabric and rods if needed.

Choose the Right Lining for Silk Drapery Panels

We used a simple lining and inter-lining to allow these silk panels to stack-back tightly when opened

but we had a different objective for the panel below.  
 Here we wanted to create soft, uniform pleating.

The secret to getting softly rounded folds is choosing the right lining.  You won't have the same results by using the typical lining and inter-lining commonly used with soft silks.
