Vertical Crush Pleating
Vertical crush is as what the name suggests - irregular pleats running the length of the garment or piece of material.
Vertical crush can also undergo a two step process resulting in 'double vertical crush'. As the name suggests the process is repeated which results in a fuller crush effect.
Vertical crush pleating can either be performed on either blocks of material, material on the roll or on individual finished garments.
Vertical crush may also often be referred to as straight pleating or straight crushing.
Hint: customers often find that they have only a few sizes of a particular line of clothes left and to move it a little quicker they add a depth/different look to the garment with vertical crush.
