Pinch Pleat Heading

Example of Pinch pleat curtains

Pinch pleat is a decorative heading for curtains and valances, suitable for all types of curtain track and pole. Pinch pleats are more gathered than other headings and have permanent sewn-in pleats for a more luxurious, tailored look. We use a fully adjustable sliding plastic curtain hook for ease of use.

When ordering pinch pleat curtains or valances, please tell us your track or pole width and we will recommend the curtain or valance width to give the best fit. Pinch Pleats can often require more widths of fabric for a given track/pole width so pinch pleat curtains can be quite a bit more expensive than other headings. The difference in price for all heading options is shown when pricing a curtain.

Please note that we always show the ungathered curtain or valance width. We will gather your curtains (or valance) to the correct size to fit your track or pole.

N.B. As pinch pleat is a fixed, sewn-in heading, it is important that you quote an accurate track/pole width when ordering pinch pleats. This will allow us to gather your curtains (or valance) to the correct width. Please note that the size and spacing of the pleats will vary slightly from the picture depending on your track/pole width.
