Grey coloured pencil pleat curtains on a metal curtain pole against a white wall

Classic pencil pleat

The traditional curtain style with three-inch pleats sewn along the heading, giving it a comforting feel that is perfectly suited for classic décor.


Deep pencil pleat

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.


Back to where curtains began

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.

Your questions answered

Should I have Pencil Pleat headings with a curtain pole or track?

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.

What curtain poles can I choose for a Pencil Pleat heading?

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.

What tracks can I choose for a Pencil Pleat heading?

Pencil Pleat headings can be paired with our Metropole and Satin Track.

What fullness can I have Pencil Pleat curtains made to?

Our Pencil Pleat curtains will be made to double fullness as standard to ensure that the fabric hangs evenly whenever they are drawn.
