By far one of the most popular window covering styles, swags have graced the windows of many fine homes throughout the world for centuries. Many of the tasteful fashions are adaptations of window dressings from as early as the Victorian era. In fact, many of today’s window top treatments find inspiration in history books when designing swaged window fashions.
Simply speaking, the swag is the crescent-shaped part of the treatment that gracefully sweeps across the window. Swags take on a formal look when paired with jabots, the fabric that adorns the sides of many swag treatments. Jabots are often referred to cascades or tails, and shortened versions are sometimes placed between multiple swags to fill the space where they intersect. Adding special touches such as rich, tassel or bullion fringe trim to the swag and jabot edges elevates an ordinary swag to design status. Traditional swaged styles can be toned down into informal, more relaxed looks when casually folded or draped across an interesting pole. A scarf swag also called a scarf panel is a simple length of fabric looped through one of the many interesting swag holders available, can soften an angular room with its sweeping style.
