  Should I choose double pleat or pinch pleat heading style?

  Double pleat and pinch pleat headings look elegant and luxury.  Both headings are quite deep (about 13cm) which look great on long curtains.
Double pleat curtain - Sets of two folds are sewn in "V" shape into the double pleat header to create a neat and formal look. 
Pinch pleat curtain - Triple folds are sewn in "fan" shape into the pinch pleat header which creates a fuller look. The pleats are shown off the best effect on plain, semi or subtle designs.
