Found creases or pressure marks on fabric?
Give it a few days hanging
Iron it lightly on the reverse side
  • You may find creases or pressure marks on the fabric after unpacking your curtains from the parcel.
  • Any marks and creases will usually fall out naturally after the curtains have been hanging for a few days.
  • Most curtains can be lightly ironed on the reverse side only except velvets.
  • Velvet curtains will show creases and pressure marks when they are first hung, but these will disappear as the fabric.

Pencil Pleat

If you have selected curtains with Pencil pleats, at the top by the curtain heading on either side you will find 3 loose cords. You will need to draw up the cords to finish the curtains.

  • Securely knot together the 3 cords on the leading edge (where the two curtains meet).
  • From the opposite side, pull the 3 cords together at the same time to gather the curtain into even pleats until the required width has been reached.
  • Tie off the cords but do not cut off any excess, as the curtain will need to be un-gathered for cleaning. The loose cords can easily be tucked away neatly behind the heading tape.
  • Decide which row of hook pockets to use. To conceal the track, use the bottom row of the pockets and to expose the track/pole use the top row.
  • Insert a hook at each end of the heading tape, and then approximately 10cm apart across the width of each curtain.

Pinch Pleat

Pinch Pleat
  • These curtains will arrive at the correct width, so all you need to do is simply insert your pin hooks into the heading.
  • If the curtains are to be hung from a pole, insert the pin hooks just below the top of the curtain.
  • If the curtains are to be hung from a track and it is to be hidden, then insert the hooks at a lower level.
  • The pin hooks should be inserted into the vertical seam at the back of the curtain, at the required height.

Eyelet and tab top

Eyelet and tab top
  • If you have selected Eyelet or Tab Top, simply slide the pole through the top of the curtain, gathering the fabric into even folds.
  • Replace the finials on each end of the pole to secure the curtain.Finally, rest the pole back into the wall brackets and fix accordingly.
