Mushroom pleat ombre dyed charmeuse in gray/violet - $95/yd
This gorgeous fabric comes from a top New York design house. It is pleated with layers of paper, and we sell it in the "relaxed" state rather than stretching it out and flattening it. Mushroom pleats are random and may be tighter or looser pleats throughout the yardage.
This fabric is reminiscent of Fortuny pleats, with the advantage of being washable and packable. It stays pleated. Pleated along the width of the fabric (horizontally), and can be used in any direction. 45" wide. Stretch it, fold it back on itself, twist it, reverse it. It forms beautiful effects such as the lettuce leaf edge seen here. Notice the subtle greys and softly airbrushed violet tones.
100% poly, this fabric will retain its pleats for years to come with careful hand washing.
The pleats run across the 45" width of the fabric.
The ombre coloration is rich and versatile for evening. There are subtle shades of smoke, violet, mauve, and olive throughout.
