Euro Relaxed, Fan or American Pinch Pleat

The Euro Relaxed, Fan or American Pinch Pleat is a more casual style of heading. Double or triple folds are sewn into the top of heading of the fabric at regular intervals, creating a reverse pinch pleat. It requires a similar amount of fabric to its equivalent pinch pleat & creates a luxurious full drape. It stacks well in areas & has a more relaxed look when open.
