Pinch pleat draperies are panels that are hung on a rod with either pleater hooks or cafe rings. There are a few different styles of pleats. The most popular are double-pinch pleat and triple-pinch pleat panels.
All pinch pleats feature separate pleats that are pinched tight at the bottom to form evenly spaced folds throughout a drape or curtain.
Pinch pleats routinely come in the double-pinch pleat style or the triple-pinch pleat. The double-pinch pleat drapery resembles a V with the two pleats held tight at the bottom. The triple pleat has three pleats that resemble a fan.
Double-pinch pleats are usually found on light fabric and are hung in more casual settings. The triple-pinch pleat drape is more formal and can be used on heavier fabric which lends itself to more elegant window treatments.
Triple pleats are a good choice for large or wide windows because they are better able to hold the weight of fabric. Double pleats are best suited for a small window or for cafe curtains, which are usually made from lighter fabric.
Consider the window type and location before selecting a type of pleat. Thought should also be given to your personal design preferences.
