Heading Styles - Pencil Pleat


pencil pleat curtain heading
Pencil pleat curtains have a 3” (6.5cm) deep heading tape which is sewn on the back of the fabric and located about 1/8” (3mm) from the top of the curtain. Pencil pleat heading tape has 3 rows of hook pockets (top, middle & bottom) allowing you to adjust the height of your curtains. For example if you wish to raise your curtain up a little to cover the front of curtain tracks or raise your curtains above the floor or window cills, you can alter the position of the hooks. To produce the pencil pleat finish, the curtains will require pulling up to the tape up to the correct width. This is achieved by knotting the three heading tape cords at both ends of the heading tape, then simply pull the cords evenly from one end until your curtain reaches the correct width for your curtain track or pole. 
  • Pencil pleat curtain heading can use either plastic or metal curtain hooks
  • We recommend curtain hooks should be spaced as follows. Hook the first pocket then miss 3 pockets and again fit a hook the next pocket then repeat the procedure across the entire width of the curtain heading. 
  • Compatible with curtain poles and curtain tracks



Pinch Pleat (triple pinch)

Pinch pleat curtains create a luxurious look with neat triple pinches of fabric and uniform folds of curtain fabric when there open or closed. The pinch pleats are created from 5” (12.7cm) deep buckram heading (stiffened stabilizing fabric) which is sewn onto the top of the curtain allowing the pinches to retain their shape thought out the life of the curtain. Each pinch is made from three folds of fabric and permanently sewn together, the spacing of the pinches depends on the width of your curtains but they will be roughly 4” (10cm) to 5” (12.7cm) apart.

Choose your curtain lining

The lining is a piece of plain fabric the same sizes as the main curtain fabric with the two pieces of fabric being sewn together as a part of the curtain making process. The lining serves the purpose of enhancing the appearance of the colours and patterns of the main curtain fabric, ensuring the curtains hang perfectly and pleat neatly. Other benefits of having lined curtains include helping to keep the windows insulated during the colder winter months helping you to reduce heating bills. Having lined curtains also helps protect your curtain fabric from strong direct sunlight.
We offer a standard lining or blackout lining which are both available in ivory and white. Below we have explained about each type to help you make your choice;
Ivory Lining
Cream is the most popular colour lining as it complements most curtain fabrics and the discolouration from direct sunlight is less likely to notice.
  • Most popular colour coordinates with 98% of fabrics and decor
  • Composition of 70% polyester & 30 cotton
White Lining
White lining will maintain the fresh white colouring of curtains based on a white background.
  • Composition of 70% polyester & 30 cotton
  • Fresh crisp clean look
Blackout Lining (ivory or white)
Blackout lining will completely cut out all the light from passing through the curtains, so if you’re waking up too early or having trouble drifting off to sleep due to light levels in the room, this type of lining will resolve the problem. Please Note: Some light may still leak from the gap between the curtains and the wall. If you want complete blackout, we recommend fitting a blackout roller blind inside your window recess.
  • Ideal for windows that get the early morning sun
  • Great for children’s rooms
  • Composition of 70% polyester & 30 cotton
  • Gives added insulation in cold winter months

What are tiebacks?
Tiebacks are loops of fabric which hold the curtain in place when the curtains are open.
The benefits of having tiebacks are the curtains are:
  • The curtains are pulled away from the window allowing more light into the room
  • Curtain pleats remain neatly folded 
  • They prevent curtains from blowing out doorways and windows
