Pleats

The art of the Pleat.

Pleats escape the ephemeral world and join another, more durable and solid and often unusual and fun. And this without losing their apparent fragility and beauty.

At Petratex it is possible to make all kinds of pleats: while some can be extraordinarily complex and fanciful, others can take on more conventional shapes.

With regard to this method, the pleats can be made either manually or in an automatic machine, using sheets of Kraft paperboard: the fabric is placed between two cardboard molds and is gradually molded into the desired shape before being transported to the an oven to finish the process of fixing the pleats.

Undoubtedly, an invitation to discovery!
