Silk Interiors can make your curtains to exactly fit your requirements.


We can offer headings such as pencil pleat, pinch pleat, goblet pleat or eyelet headings.


We will come and measure your window at no cost and give you a free estimate. As we have found the process of choosing fabric to be a very personal one, we will leave you to find fabric of your own choice. Once you have this, we will provide you with the finished product as soon as possible.


Silk Interiors can also provide any lining you should require, be that blackout, thermal or interlined.

Curtain Headings

There are several types of curtain headings, and without a pelmet you will need to make the right choice of heading, as they will be on show all the time. So take your time to look at your options. Here are some descriptions to assist you...

Pencil Pleat Curtains

Probably the most common heading, the pleats are a similar size to pencils, as the name would suggest. To achieve this look, there are three cords that run along the heading tape. These cords should be pulledwhen hanging the curtains to create the pencil pleats. Pull as far as possible, then spread evenly to the required width of the window. Don't forget to knot the cords close to the curtain edge afterwards.

Double Pleat Curtains

Double pleat curtains have a stiffened heading which is sewn to create evenly spaced pleats.

Triple Pleat Curtains

Similar to the double pleat curtains, but with three pleats instead of two. This is sometimes described as French pleat.

Goblet Pleat Curtains

Goblet Pleat curtain headings are similar to twin and triple pleats, but they have a round pleat shaped like a goblet.

Tab Top Curtains

Tab top curtains are hung from a curtain pole by evenly spaced tabs of fabric. The end tabs should be attached to the edges of the curtains.

Eyelet Curtains

Eyelet curtains have reinforced holes, which the curtain pole is threaded through in a concertina effect to hang the curtains.
