Curtain Headings

Every fabric is unique, and the fall of a curtain depends entirely on the heading selected. Many of our fabrics demand a certain heading, to ensure they function perfectly. But often, you’ll have the ability to choose. This depends on how you would like your curtain to move and sit when both open and closed. With the ability to create mystery or minimalism, the heading of your custom curtain sets the scene.

The choice of your curtain heading is an integral part of deciding what drape style is right for you and your home. Each heading type not only offers a different look, but adjusts the amount of fullness in your curtain.

Double & Triple Pinch Pleat

Double and triple pinch pleats or ‘pinch pleat’ curtains have groups of two or three pleats spaced evenly along the curtain, creating a classic formal finish with a neat tailored look and fullness.  A major advantage of double or triple pleat curtains is that they ‘stack back’ very neatly in a relatively small space, making them an ideal choice when wall space is limited.


This increasingly popular heading has a smooth, continuous ‘wave’ effect, crafting a modern look which is highly functional and easy to operate. The fabric falls in neat folds immediately without needing to be ‘trained’ in the way that pinch pleat or inverted pleat curtains require. The stacking of an S-Wave is greater than pinch pleats.

Pencil Pleat / Gather

Gathered or pencil pleat headings have a soft, informal and less structured finish with an attractive ‘ruffle’ look.
