Triple Pinch or French Pleat

The Triple Pinch or French Pleat is a classic and formal heading choice. Trios of folds are sewn into the heading of the fabric at regular intervals, creating a fan shape. It requires the most fabric of all the heading types & creates a luxurious full drape. The Triple Pinch Pleat still stacks well in areas where there is limited stacking space. Perfect for traditional settings, this is an elegant and timeless heading type.
