The pinch pleat is what we traditionally associate with curtains. Some consider it a little old-fashioned, but pinch pleats are experiencing a revival.
If your home is traditional, a pinch pleat is
the perfect heading style for your curtains.
Pinch pleats work beautifully on all types of fabrics. Depending on the fabric, they can be converted into a more contemporary style by utilising a double, rather than a triple pleat. This reduces the amount of fullness and therefore the amount of fabric required, meaning less money spent on fabric. That’s always a great result!
Pinch pleats sit upright and are great on virtually any type of rod or track, as you can control where the hook position sits. They’re great from an industry perspective because we can adjust them on-site if necessary.
The Euro pleat is a variation of the pinch pleat, where the ‘pinch’ is at the top edge of the curtain. This style suits large-scale prints & patterns, allowing you to see more of the actual fabric. The Euro pleat is becoming quite popular among our clients as an updated look. It’s perfect for Hamptons style homes.
