What are tab top curtains?

Tab top curtains are different from normal curtains, as fabric loops are made from the header or the top edge of the curtains. They are winded over the curtain pole or rod and fixed at the front through buttons or lace ties. Over the years, these curtains have become quite popular as they have a very distinct look compared to other curtains.

In some tab top curtains, the top loops are made from the same fabric as the drapes, while in other curtains, the loops have a different colour and fabric. The choice of the tab top design will depend on the interior décor of your home and the style.
