Drapery Buckram

H&V’s Hovotex® nonwoven supports more drapery pleats than any other nonwoven buckram in the world. Offered in several weights and available in heat tackable versions for faster sewing, our Hovotex buckram keeps drapery pleats looking new after laundering or dry cleaning. 

  • Our products retain 59% of their original stiffness with less than 3% shrinkage after laundering.  Hovotex is specifically formulated to be UV stable to avoid yellowing in lightweight and sheer curtains and draperies.

Our buckram formulation is formaldehyde-free, ensuring regulatory compliance.

Hovotex buckram sets the industry standard for both residential and commercial pinch pleat draperies. Our wet-laid nonwoven buckram insures high pleat retention with no sagging or drooping. Designed with a heat tackable coating as a sewing aid, drapery construction has become faster and easier.  

  • Sold through distributors specializing in servicing workrooms.
  • Packed in cartons of 25 rolls of 100 yards/rolls.
  • Standard rolls shipped from stock; custom slits widths and roll lengths are available by special order.
