what are pinch pleat curtains?

Pinch pleat curtains are named after their specific style of header, whereby the fabric is gathered into elegant folds or ‘pleats’ along the top. These pleats are permanently sewn in place, creating a tailored look that can easily be displayed on either a curtain track or pole.

Depending on your curtains’ design, you might prefer to go with either a double or triple pleat. Double pinch pleat curtains have two layers of fabric in each fold, while triple pinch pleat curtains have three. Double pinch pleats are a popular choice for curtains with statement patterns, as less fabric is gathered in the pleats, and more is left on display. Triple pinch pleats are a slightly more luxurious choice, looking great on heavier fabrics like velvet or suede.

how to hang pinch pleat curtains.

Hanging your own pinch pleat curtains might seem daunting, but it’s a pretty simple process once you get going. The beauty of the pinch pleat design is that it can hang on either a track or pole – but if you are using a pole, keep in mind that you’ll need curtain rings to hang them up.

Our pinch pleat curtains come with adjustable hooks sewn in, saving you the tedious work of having to insert and adjust your hooks manually. Start by making sure the number of hooks on your curtains matches up with the number of rings on your curtain pole, or the number of runners on your track. This will save you from having to remove any extras down the line.

Begin threading the curtain hooks through the eyelets on your curtain rings, or fit them into the runners on your track. Start in the middle and work your way out, just in case you need to remove any extras at the end. Once you’ve inserted a few hooks, allow your curtains to hang and check if you’re happy with the fit. Adjust the height of the hooks if needs be, or keep inserting them until there’s one hook in each pleat.
