Soft Fold: Created by hobbling the face fabric onto the lining at regular intervals. This creates cascading soft folds at 6" intervals. Plain Fold: This is a contemporary look that require minimal dressing. Stay pockets on the back of the shade create pleats which look great with most fabrics. *Warning: Plain style with Blackout Liner runs the risk of light seepage through the stitch perforations at the horizontal pleat. To avoid, choose soft fold style with blackout liner. *Note that European and Flat fold are not available when the shade is cordless.
