The necessity in our realm applies to that which directly affects drapery installation.
There are typically two times during the life cycle of a project where there is a flurry of communication between the Drapery Manufacturer’s Project Manager and the purchasing agent or owner representative. The first is during the measurement & digestion of measures process.

Fullness affects every drape that we make. To say the least, it's kind of a big deal in the industry. That being said, it can pose to be a difficult concept to wrap one's head around and it's usually even harder for someone in a design or purchasing role to imagine & articulate the aesthetic a certain fullness will create in a room.
