What are pencil pleat curtains?

This classic style of curtain features a length of ‘ruffle tape’ across the back. By adjusting the cords at the back, this causes the ruffle effect at the top of the fabric, bunching it into pleats. The hanging material resembles a row of pencils laid together, hence the name. It’s not possible to hang the curtains directly from the curtain rail or track and so curtain hooks are essential. When spaced out evenly this ensures smooth operation and maintains the neat appearance of the pleats.

How do you hang pencil pleat curtains on a track?

With this style, the curtain hooks need to be fed from one end of the track so they fit within the channel or groove that keeps them in place. It usually helps to have the hooks attached to the curtain first. There are various styles of curtain track but aften there will be a decorative knob or stopper at each end which will need to be removed and put back into place once the curtains have been hung.
