Poly Knit traditionally started as a fabric used for making convention table skirting but has gained popularity as a drape fabric due to its lustrous shine that’s sought after for up-lighting. It has the feel of shiny silk or Taffeta and is used regularity for tent draping and dramatic drape designs. It comes in an array of bold, bright colors and is sewn off a 60″ wide roll with 4″ pockets standard on both the top and bottom of the panel.
The Georgia Expo Difference.
All panels come standard with 4″ pockets on both top and bottom of the drape so it can be hung both ways, extending the life of the panel. Our sewing team double-back-tacks each first inch of the pocket so that the 1st critical inch that’s used to string your drape support has extra durability. When we cut the drape, we lay out each panel flat on our tables to relax the bias of the fabric, ensuring a straight and even cut each time.
Poly Knit is traditionally very close in the shade from order to order but can be dye lot sensitive. We use a color scanner to take the human eye out of the equation when matching dye lots. If you already have Poly Knit Drape in your inventory, we are happy to match your dye lot as close as possible. Just give us a call (1.800.433.9767), and we’ll look up your last order and send you out the closest dye lot match for your approval. If this is your first order, we’ll keep your shade number on file, and if asked, will match it as close as possible for your next order!
Poly Knit Drape is typically sewn off a 60″ wide roll, and we recommend three panels per 10ft. section of Pipe and Drape to give the look of 50% fullness. (Ex. using three panels, 60″ wide you will have 15ft. of the drape on a 10ft section.) We also sell Poly Knit Drape off a 120″ wide roll.

*Due to differences in photography, lighting, color correction and screen color variances our online images may not be an exact color match to the fabric. To avoid discrepancies, please order a free fabric sample before ordering. We do our best to represent each color as accurately as possible, but please note that all drapes are made to order and non-returnable.
*Please note that it’s industry standard to sew Poly Knit Drape 2″ shorter than full length to prevent it from touching the floor. We are happy to accommodate full-length drape if requested; please make a note in the cart if you’d like your drape sewn to full length. The standard dimensions are listed above.
*Please note that dye lots can vary. If you are trying to match existing inventory, please request a dye lot sample from a sales representative.
*Please note, while not common, the drape can vary in height/width +/- 1″.
