Pencil pleat

The most popular heading style suitable for curtain tracks or poles.  As standard I use a 7.5cm wide heading tape, though for very long curtains I would use a deep 10cm tape.  Pull the cords on the heading tape to gather the curtain to the required width.   A more softly gathered look can be achieved if the cords are pulled less.

 

Wave

A contemporary curtain style with less fullness than alternative styles. Use with curtain poles.

 

Double/Triple pleat (pinch pleat also)

A formal style.  Please note that fabric designs with wide stripes or large motifs do not work well with this style, as the positioning of the pleats can make the design look off-balance.  

 

Goblet

A formal style. Please note that fabric designs with wide stripes or large motifs do not work well with this style, as the positioning of the goblets can make the design look off-balance.  I'd recommend using curtain poles with this style and the poles should extend at least 30cm each side of the window to allow for the fullness of the goblets.

 

For patterned fabrics, all designs will be matched at seams, and left and right curtains will have the same part of the design at the top edge.
