Woven Pocket Tapes

The benefits of woven pocket curtain tapes are well known by professional curtain makers as well as retailers and consumers.
All our woven pocket tapes have high quality woven pockets with warp and weft yarns woven together to form strong hook pockets.

Good quality curtain hooks fit tightly into the pocket giving minimal movement.
As the pockets support the hooks firmly, the pockets don’t sag and curtains will hang at consistent length.

By encasing the draw cords of pencil pleat tapes in specially constructed tubes set in the base fabric of the tape the cords remain at the back of the pleat. The individual pleats then stand forward of the base fabric in the classic ‘D’ pleat.

D pleats are the most popular and classical pencil pleats with high pleat definition and predetermined fullness. At this fullness the tape will stop pleating, the well proportioned deep ”D” style pleats will be beautifully presented with each pleat firmly aligned next to its neighbours less able to tip, bunch or spread.

High quality draw cords complete the specification of our woven pocket tapes.

String Pocket Tapes

Our string pocket tapes are made to a number of designs. String Pocket tapes are generally more cost effective to manufacture than woven pocket tapes however there is also more chance of the string pockets stretching over time compared to a woven pocket tape.

Single sided tapes will typically have the pockets on just one side of the tape so a little care must be taken to ensure that the tape is sewn on with the pockets away from the fabric.

The draw cord pass in and out of the fabric of the tape between the pleats or pass through specially made ‘tubes’ so that the individual pleats are separated and locked into position by a flat section.

One advantage of the single sided tape design is that, as the pockets are further apart than on a double sided tape, the pocket cord is less likely to pull though the tape so the pockets are less likely to stretch.

Pencil Pleat, also known as Tape Top or 3” Tape curtains, is the standard heading for curtains and valances. Pencil pleat curtain heading usually consists of three rows of string threaded through it for three hook positions to suit all types of track and pole. 
Pinch pleat tapes are a decorative heading for curtains and valances and can be used on all curtain tracks and poles. Pinch pleat heading is more gathered than other curtain headings with the pleats sewn in to give a luxurious and permanent gathered look.
Different curtain headings can affect the gather that may be required for a curtain. In the instance of 3 inch pencil pleat and pinch pleat curtains, double the gather is generally recommended.
