User: what is the history of pleats?



Weegy: A pleat (older plait) is a type of fold formed by doubling fabric back upon itself and securing it in place. [ It is commonly used in clothing and upholstery to gather a wide piece of fabric to a narrower circumference.[1] Pleats are categorized as pressed, that is, ironed or otherwise heat-set into a sharp crease, or unpressed, falling in soft rounded folds. Pleats sewn into place are called tucks. ]

User: what is the history for pleats?

Weegy: In Ancient Egypt, the pleated kalasiris was mainly made in linen. Pleats were achieved one by one by hand and were reserved to the elite. The same pleasure for pleats was found later in Greece with the peplos and chiton made of wool and linen. [ When at the end of the XIX century, Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo rediscovers the ancient pleats and launches the Delphos silk pleated gown is inspired by a famous greek sculpture : the charioteer of Delphi. Since then, all major fashion designers, from Dior to Balmain have created faboulous models using pleats. ]
