Pinch pleat curtains – Loss of tops make hanging curtains on a regular or decorative rod easy. The flaps are clear, flat tubes of fabric sewn as a series of evenly spaced bands on the top edge of the curtain panel, with each strip making a loop. Usually about 2 inches wide, the weave strips match or harmonize with curtain fabrics. Both band ends either sew to the curtain up to make a loop, one end of the strip is folded to the front and secured with a decorative fastener, or both strap ends sewn on the back of the curtain panel – the method used to pinch pleat curtains. On the back of the curtains, the fabric tabs are not visible from the front of the panel.
