Below is a range of pleats or headings available to suit your desired look.
Wave or S-Fold Pleat
Wave pleat is the latest trend in curtain headings and is widely used on sheers, the "S" shape heading is formed by sewing the fabric flat onto the heading tape then hung on special carriers which are unique to the S-Fold.
The wave pleat is a great choice over a roller blind or to add a soft luxury feel using a sheer on a door or window.
The reverse pleat consisting of a wide rectangular pleat that can be used for sheers or block out curtains. The reverse pleat has a very clean look to the front due to the pleat being sewn on the reverse side of the curtain header giving you a flat modern look to the front when the curtain is closed. This is a great option for those who don't like the look of a pleat on the front side.
Double Pinch Pleat
The double pleat is a more traditional pleat consisting of two pinched pleats at the heading of the curtain, also a great choice for block out curtains.
Triple Pinch Pleat
Our triple pinch pleat gives you a luxurious full look due to the amount of fabric used. This consists of three pinch pleats together on the heading.
The knife pleat is a neat and simple heading suited to linings behind a sheer fabric on a double track. This allows a flat look giving good block out when used as a lining.
A gathered look is typically used on a lining behind a sheer curtain and a double track to provide good light block out. This pleat is also known as a pencil pleat due to the narrow pleats being around the size of a pencil.
