If the folder name begins with a dot it's (by default) hidden in the file explorers. However you can see it with the '-a' option to ls.

If you can see it at the command line it's not hidden

As said earlier, putting a dot in front is the easy way to do this. KDE will show or hide dot files as requested. Other than that try restructuring how you have the files stored in subdirectories.
