Pencil Pleat

The Pencil Pleat is suitable for all fabric types, and works in traditional, modern or casual interiors. Pencil Pleats are created by gathering or pulling the cords in the tape sewn at the top of the curtain. The three rows of cords are pulled up evenly, creating deep “pencil” pleats.
