Pencil Pleat Curtains
- Classic look with tightly gathered folds
- Suited for more traditional homes
- Can be paired with a pole or track
The Pencil Pleat has been a popular heading choice for generations. Loved for the welcoming rural look and feel of each tightly packed fold, this time-honoured heading is a classic choice if you are looking to create a cosy environment in a bedroom or living space.
Not recommended for modern environments, this beautiful heading has a wonderfully quaint feel and can be the perfect complement to any rustic décor.
The individually sewn pleats can be hooked at three separate heights, giving you options of how much of the floor or curtain pole you would like to have on show.
Pencil Pleat headings can be combined with either a track or curtain pole, making it work with the littlest charming window or widest window bays.
With adjustable cords running across the heading, your chosen fabric will be perfectly fitted to your window to always hang beautifully and never look out of place.
The traditional curtain style with three-inch pleats sewn along the heading, giving it a comforting feel that is perfectly suited for classic décor.
A twist on the traditional heading with three extra inches sewn into the pleat, allowing the material to gather elegantly and hang in a more natural way.
Personal design consultation
Handmade just for you
Choosing the perfect curtain is much more than simply matching a colour or fabric to your existing décor. Which is why your local Thomas Sanderson designer will take the time to understand your needs and help you choose the right product. With models of each style and our full range of fabrics brought right to your door.
It depends on the window you are trying to furnish but either will work. Curtain poles are best for smaller or standard window spaces, where tracks are useful for large spaces or more complex shapes such as bay windows.
Pencil Pleat headings can be paired with any of our curtain pole collections. Our wooden range – Harvest, Elemental and Boutique – and our metal range – Manor and Refined.
Pencil Pleat headings can be paired with our Metropole and Satin Track.
Our Pencil Pleat curtains will be made to double fullness as standard to ensure that the fabric hangs evenly whenever they are drawn.
