Pencil Pleat Heading

The most popular choice of curtain heading, pencil pleats are created by pulling strings on heading tape attached to the back of the curtain to the desired width of the curtain. The look and body of the curtain, how flat or stacked the fabric is, can be adjusted by how tight the strings are pulled. Classic and simple, pencil pleats are a smarter alternative to gathered headings.

Pencil pleats can be used with either tracks or poles.



Single Pleat Heading

Also known as pinch pleats, the pleats are achieved by making creases in the buckram (a stiff material used to make the heading). This heading achieves a flat-styled curtain, a relaxed look which takes up little room when drawn back, which allows maximum light in through your window while the curtains are open.

The curtains hooks are placed directly into the back of the heading. Single pleats can be used on both tracks and poles.


Double Pleat Heading

Requiring more fabric than a single pleat (but less than a triple pleat), double pleat curtains are full, smart & elegant. Like single pleats, the pleats are created by making folded creases in the stiff buckram that gives the heading its shape. Hooks are then inserted directly into the back of the heading.

Double pleats are suitable for both tracks and poles.


Triple Pleat Heading

Oddly enough, triple pleats (also known as French pleats) are made just the same way as single and double pleats but more fabric is required to make the third fold. This has the effect of making the curtains very full and luxurious. A classically elegant heading style.

Triple pleats can be hung on either curtain tracks or poles.


Gathered Pleat Heading

A traditional, cottage style heading, gathered pleats not only look cosy and unpretentious. They also require the least amount of fabric of all the heading types making them very economical. Gathered pleats are suitable for both tracks and poles.


Inverted Pleat Heading

Inverted pleats are a modern stylish heading. Like triple pleats, a generous amount of fabric is required, making the curtains look full and sumptuous. Inverted Pleats can be put up on both tracks and poles. This heading is better suited to wide windows as due to the amount of fabric required the curtains will take up space when pulled back.


Eyelet Heading

Stylish, modern and unfussy, eyelets are a great choice for an up-to-date look. Our standard eyelet size is 40mm and we offer a range of different colours for the metal rings. This style also stacks back fully and neatly so it's a good choice if you have little space to the side of your window. Eyelet Curtains are only suitable for use on a pole.


Tab Top Heading

Another heading only suitable for a curtain pole, a tab top is a relaxed laid back heading where the fabric is used to create loops to go around the pole. This heading is ideal for light curtains and is often used for unlined voiles or sheer curtains. Interlining is not recommended as this creates a lot of weight giving the tabs a stretched look.
