Metal holes or 'eyelets' are punched into the top of the curtain and then slotted onto a pole.

The result is a very neat curtain that falls into neat folds.

Buckram is hand sewn into the top of the curtains as it is with Pinch Pleat and then the eyelets are cut through this using a specialist machine.

The metal eyelets are then riveted from either side of the curtain for a neat, secure finish.


NB All too many places use an 'eyelet tape' which then employs plastic rings that clip on to the tape.

The eyelets will often fall off once you start operating your curtains.

We always make ours the correct and professional way with buckram and proper 'riveted' metal eyelets.

Curtain poles are an essential consideration when purchasing made to measure eyelets and we are here to guide you through the different finishes and finials on offer.

An important detail to consider is that the metal eyelets stamped into the top of your curtains should match the metal of the pole.

Very neat, easy to operate and hang beautifully.

They do not use up as much fabric as many other styles.

They stack back very neatly either side of your window and are far less bulky than many other styles of curtains.

Suitable for working or dress curtains on straight windows.


Not ideal on bay windows due to the pole requirements and getting the eyelets around the bends!

Slightly more expensive to make-up due to cost and number of eyelets needed.

Pleats must be evened out across the pole by hand.
