MADE TO MEASURE PENCIL PLEAT CURTAIN
In a pencil pleat curtain the fabric is gathered into pleats with a 7 cm wide curtain. The tape is fitted at the top of the curtain (at the back) and it has 2 rows of pockets to chose from and to place hooks in while hanging the curtain.
The bottom of the curtain is hemmed. The width of the hem depends on the drop of the curtain:
- for curtains up to 200 cm long the width of the hem is 5 cm
- for curtains over 200 cm long the width of the hem is 10 cm
The bottom of the curtains is also finished with weights in the bottom corners of the curtain, to improve the hang and keep the curtain in position.
The hem on the sides of the curtain is 2 cm wide.
The width of the curtain made to measure is the width before gathering. Please allow extra fabric for gathering.
Curtains over 130 cm in width are made out of two or more pieces of fabric. This is due to the standard width of fabrics (140cm) available from fabric manufacturers. This is a standard practice in the industry, the patterns are matched across the pieces of fabric and this does not affect the quality or the look of the finished curtain. This may not apply to a small number of fabrics that are supplied in rolls that are 280 cm wide.
