Pass-Through Drapes

Pass-Through Drapes

This is a non-operating drapery. Why would someone do this type of a treatment? The most often used reason is that they want to soften the harshness of the walls and pillars and offer a more relaxed view as you enter the next room. When doing this treatment there were a few considerations.

  • The shape of the arch had to be cut into the header of the drapery.
  • The pleating had to match on both sides of the drapery.
  • Special side hems had to be created to avoid the look of a “lining” on the back side. It is called “knife edge”.
  • Choices need to be made to determine whether the face fabrics would match or complement each other.
  • Mounting method needed to hidden since it would be visible from both sides.
