    • Jabots have 4 pleats, and a 1½" rod pocket
    • The face of Jabots is 12" - total width with the return is 15½"
    • Jabots are self-lined or lined with a contrasting fabric
    • Jabots are knife pleated with the pleats turned outward
    • Our Jabots are made with a standard 3½" return, which works with the large majority of Double & Triple Curtain Rod Sets available in the marketplace. However, there are some rod sets with larger returns. Our Jabots can be special ordered with a different return depth. Please call (877-841-1315) and speak with one of our window experts if this is an issue.
  • Window width and personal preferences will determine the number of swags needed to dress your windows. Most often an uneven number of swags (1,3,5) results in the best look. However, in some cases, it will be necessary to use an even number of swags. It is recommended that the swags overlap in the same direction when hanging an even number (2,4,6) of swags.
