Drapery Talk

Functional: A window treatment that can be opened and closed or raised and lowered to completely cover or expose the window
Interlining: A flannel-like fabric that is sewn in between the face fabric and the lining. Usually used in panels, interlining adds body and gives a luxurious look to draperies.
Leading edge: The two vertical edges of the panels that meet in the center of the window; this is often where decorative trim is applied.
Puddle: A panel of excessive length that is arranged on the floor
Return: The outside edge of the panels where the fabric extends from the last pleat and returns to the wall; this element is important to cover up the sides of the brackets and prevent light gaps.
