it begins with an idea
The Wave - The Wave Heading is a contemporary heading giving a rolling wave effect. Created using a specialist tape, hooks and track/rod which makes this heading expensive to manufacture.
The Eyelet - The Eyelet Heading is minimalistic and contemporary. Metal eyelets are punched into the fabric for a rod to pass through. The heading style is more expensive to manufacture as the eyelets and punching carry surcharges. Eyelet drapes can only be used with rods and cannot be drawn past a bracket. It is recommended to only use the Eyelet heading on a rod with a max width of 2.5m.
The Tab – The Tab Top Heading is a casual heading using tab loops of matching or contrasting fabric as the header which loop over the curtain rods. This header can only be used on rods and the tabs cannot draw past a bracket therefore these drapes cannot be used on rods exceeding 2.5m wide.
The Pencil Pleat - The Pencil Pleat Heading is a gathered Heading which creates a series of straight evenly spaced pleats across the entire top of the curtain. It is a casual look and can be used on both tracks and rods. The most frequently used heading size is 75mm, but is also available in 40 and 50mm which is used most commonly for sheer drapes, or if a drape is being installed behind a pelmet or into a ceiling recess. A 150mm heading is also available and looks best where there is a huge drop, the 150mm heading creates a proportional balance.
Roman Blinds – The Roman Blind is a fabric blind that folds neatly at the top of the window. As the blind is raised the fabric is drawn up in horizontal concertina folds. The Roman Blind is perfect for smaller windows or if an uncluttered look is desired.
Inverted Pleat - The Inverted Pleat Heading is a reversed single pleat. This heading style is very neat and simple using less fabric and requiring a much smaller stack back. The Inverted Pleat has a structured modern finish which compliments any style of fabric. This is our most popular heading style and can be used with either a track or rod.
Single or New York Pleat - The Single Pleat or New York Pleat is a simple contemporary look, using a minimum amount of fabric requiring a smaller amount of wall space for the drapes to stack back onto. This Heading style consists of one single pleat to the front and can be used on a track or rod.
Double or Dutch Pleat - The Double or Dutch Pleat Heading is a twin pleat, similar to the New York Pleat but with greater fullness of fabric. This heading has groups of two pleats evenly spaced along the tops of the drape. It is a very popular heading for a more traditionally styled fabric and can be used on either a track rod.
Triple or French Pleat - The Triple Pleat or French Pleat is a classic pleat style with a more formal look. This heading has groups of three pleats evenly spaced along the top of the drape. This Heading style requires more fabric to create the pleats which results in much fuller drapes needing a larger amount of wall space to stack back onto. Thick heavy weight fabric such as velvet are not suitable for a French Pleat Heading as the fabric is too thick to fold into three even pleats and impossible to manufacture. This heading style can be used on both tracks and rods.
