Swags & Jabots

Product: Prestige Velour; Beacon Theatre; Owner: Madison Square Garden Entertainment; Architects and Planners: Beyer, Binder & Belle; General Contractor: Lehr Construction

Swags and Jabots are ornamental additions to a curtain. Swags are made of fabric pleated at each end and draped down in the center to form an esthetic bottom curve. A jabot (i.e. tail or cascade) is a folded piece of fabric that falls from the top of the curtain in a zig-zag shape. Jabots fall gracefully from the top at either side of a swag or at the sides and middle of a series of swags. Swags and Jabots are ornamental additions to a curtain.

Swags and Jabot

Fullness can be manufactured into a drape using a variety of different pleats or shirring. It can also be “hung in” using Ripplefold (i.e. roll-pleats) or Pipe and Grommet.


Austrian Swag
Like an Austrian Curtain, the swag has fullness both vertically and horizontally.

Scallop Swag
The fullness in this swag is evenly spaced, forming arcs radiating out from the center.

Jabot
Jabot sometimes called waterfalls, are fabric panels that typically Cascade down the side of or between swags. They often have a complementary fabric as a liner or fringe, along the leading edge.

Point to Point Swag
The fullness in this swag is pulled to the outer corners, leaving the center of the swag flat.

Shirred Swag
Shirring tape is used on the header to create the fullness in the swag.
