Headings

A curtain heading is simply the name given to the bunched fabric at the top of a curtain. Below are a few headings that are available, if you require something different, please contact us to discuss:

Pencil Pleat

It is suitable for all fabric types, and generally provides a simple, casual look.
Ideal for valances or short curtains (caravans, boats etc). Produces neat, slim pencil pleats which also provide a perfect heading for Austrian and festoon blinds.
Triple Pleat Pleats pinched in groups of three, with spaces between which spread when the curtain is extended.  This effect can also be achieved by hand, using buckram - which gives a more defined finish. Please mention in comments if you want this effect done by hand. Boxed Pleat Give a very tailored look and drape into deep folds down the full length of the curtains.  The pleats butt onto each other with no interval between them with a crisp tailored for elegant valances and fixed headings.

Smocked Pleat

An attractive smocking effect for decorative headings or valances
A decorative pleating effect, particularly suited to fixed headings such as dress curtains and valances.

Tulip Pleat

Fan shaped pleats create a delicate and eye catching pleating effect  
A decorative heading for long drops or sill length curtains. Can be used with light to medium weight fabrics.

PlisPlat

Evenly spaced box pleats.
The pleats are evenly spaced for a slightly less formal look.

Goblet Pleat

Simple looking but very effective
Perfectly formed, perfectly spaced goblet shaped pleats - ideal for valances and longer length curtains

Eyelet

Less formal than pinch pleates with a contemporary feel.
 When the curtain is closed they create a soft, curving fold down the fabric and need far less material than other types of pleat.
