Goblet curtains are very similar in make-up to pinch pleat curtains where buckram is inserted into the top of the curtain and then the heading is formed into equally spaced 'goblet' shapes.


Again, the pleats and finished width of each curtain is carefully planned so that they fit your pole exactly.


Goblet heading provides a very rich and sumptuous look that can be further enhanced by the use of buttons or knotted rope. Stunning!

NB As mentioned in our PINCH PLEAT HEADING section, many makers & suppliers use inferior 'heading tapes' to make up pinch and goblet pleat curtains !

This is NOT the correct way to make them and the finished result will not look anything like the proper hand made heading.


The tape version does not offer crisp neat pleats and you also have no control of where to place those pleats which is so vital with this style of curtain.         


If you are going to go to the expense of buying beautiful fabric and having them made up then it is vital that you have them looking the very best that they can.


Professionally hand made goblet pleat headings will give you a stunning finished curtain every time.


Goblet pleat curtains look very 'dressy' and they also give you the opportunity to add some extra touches that are unique to you.


For instance, buttons can be added to each pleat, using a contrast fabric or crystal buttons or droppers for instance!


There are also numerous possibilities for different sorts of edgings, borders and trims that can be used to further enhance your own individual tastes and styles and we can advise and  guide you through all the stunning possibilities!


Goblet pleat curtains also benefit from using tiebacks and this may be achieved from a huge range in our shop or we can make them from fabric for you!


One other very important point to remember is that Goblet Pleat curtains really only look good when used with curtain poles rather than tracks.


We have an enormous range in store and we will happily guide you through the best of them to ensure that your finished window is as glorious as you imagine!


choose another curtain heading to take a peek at:


Very dressy and elegant style of curtain.

Curtains will always hang better than a standard pencil pleat heading.

Even distribution of pleats across each curtain giving a reasonably uniform look.

Suitable for working or dress curtains on straight windows and bay windows when used with the correct pole systems.




They require more fabric than most standard headings.

The extra fabric needed to form the 'goblet' can result in bulkier curtains.

Due to the nature of the 'goblet', curtains do not tend to pull back away from the window as much as other conventional styles.

If the amount of light in a room is an issue, this style of working curtain should be avoided.

Tiebacks will always need to be used to make them behave themselves!
