From receipt of the fabric curtains can be turned around within 21 days.
All curtains, valances and pelmets are hand finished. We also accommodate for bulk work as we have made and fitted large hotels, schools and hostels. Shown below is a brief description and photograph to help you make a selection in your curtain and valance treatments.



CURTAIN HEADINGS
Shown below are 5 different curtain heading:

 

 

a)

Pencil Heading: - A very simple but neat and affective heading. Can be 3” or 6” deep with a good selection of hook heights.

b)

Sewn in Pinch Pleat: - This gives a good pleat formation and offers a more sophisticated formal look. It is made with buckram and sewn to track or pole width plus over lap and return allowance. This heading has the advantage of a small stack back i.e. does not encroach onto windows when pulled back. This can have buttons on each pleat for decoration.

 

c)

Goblet Headling: - The shape is very similar to that of a wine glass and again offers a more sophisticated formal look. It is made with buckram and sewn to the track or pole width plus overlap and return allowance. This can have buttons on the pleats and or cord tied and looped between pleats.


d)

Tab Top Heading: - This heading gives an informal contemporary look. The tabs are spaced 10 - 15 cm apart and can have buttons attached at the point of each tab. They are fitted onto poles, however on windows with a wide span they can be difficult to draw. They also have a large stack back factor but with only needing 50% fullness they save on fabric quantity.


e)

Eyelet Heading: - Can be supplied with either 25mm or 40mm diameter eyelets in either Zinc or near Black finish. This heading also gives an informal, contemporary look and has the advantage of operating easily with a small stack back factor. Again this heading only needs a 50% fullness therefore saving on fabric quantity.

f)

Double Pinch Pleat Heading – This is a more contemporary version of the traditional Triple Pinch Pleat and only uses double fullness.   This heading is made with buckram to stiffen the pleats and is sewn to the track /pole width.

g)

Cartridge Pleat Heading - This is a very contemporary pleat arrangement like a Goblet Pleat but the tube has a smaller diameter and not pinched in at the bottom.  This heading uses double fullness and again is made using buckram and sewn to the track/pole width.

a)

Pencil Pleat: - There are various shapes which can be applied to the bottom edge of the valance. The headings can be 75mm or 150mm deep. It can be attached either by Velcro to a board or hooks to a track. It can also have contrast edges and trim attached to the bottom edge.

b)

c)

BUCKRAM & MDF PELMETS

 

 

These can be made to suit bay or straight windows. The MDF pelmets give a more solid/straighter appearance than the buckram. The buckram pelmet appearance is sometimes preferable due to the undulations. There are a multitude of shapes which can be applied to the bottom edge of the pelmets.

 

SWAGS, TAILS & JABOTS

 

 

There are a number of various options which you can select depending on whether you have a bay or straight windows.

Normally on bay windows it is preferable to put intermediate jabots at the corner of each inter-section.
