Curtains

We have been making hand sewn, made to measure curtains for over 30 years. All our curtains are made with care and crafted to ensure they will continue to look beautiful for many years.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff have a wealth of experience to help you select the most suitable fabrics, colours and styles from our extensive range. As part of our complete service we also provide complementary measuring and advice in your home.

Our unrivalled range of collections, featuring the top names in interior design, is available in our showroom based in Hatfields of Colchester.  We also offer the opportunity to borrow samples on loan, enabling you to visualise the design in your own home.

All our curtains are hand finished and weighted, and can be interlined or blackout lined, with finest ivory cotton sateen lining supplied as standard.

Choose from a range of heading styles:

Pinch Pleat Curtains

Our most popular style of curtain heading; a hand sewn triple pleat (usually 5” in depth) which works with all fabrics. The pleats can be made deeper for a more dramatic effect. We can dress the base of each pleat with buttons of your choice. They look particularly striking with co-ordinating fabric covered buttons and trimming cord which can be looped or knotted at the base of each pleat. The pinch pleat is suitable for long or short curtains and looks best when interlined (as is our standard). We tailor each curtain to fit the window. This style of heading gives a classic and elegant look but can be made to look more dressy which is great for both formal and informal rooms.

Goblet Pleat Curtains

For formal rooms this will provide an opulent, timeless effect. The goblet pleat is the same format as a pinch pleat but instead of folding the pleats we stuff the curtain heading and it supports itself so that it appears like a goblet of wine. Again, cord and buttons can be stitched to the base of each ‘goblet’ for added effect. This style of heading is great for a large, grand room and looks particularly effective with silk or heavy woven fabrics.

Pencil Pleat Curtains

The simplest and most economical form of curtain heading that we offer. This heading is a simple gather, suitable for unlined curtains and kitchen style curtains and voiles. This style creates a very informal, casual look and is a good way of cutting down on the amount of fabric you use (although we do recommend double fullness). Pencil pleats are particularly suitable for lightweight cottons and voiles.

Wave Curtains

No gather; a contemporary, modern look that is available on certain tracks and poles, particularly Silent Gliss. As the name suggests, this type of heading allows curtains to hang in a continuous wave. This is ideal for large, tall window (particularly patios and bi-fold door where there is limited space). With this style of heading the fabric folds very softly and there are no gatherings involved. It is a fantastic way to create very linear, clean lines and looks very neat when pulled back for a classy, elegant look.

Eyelet Curtains

A versatile, easy to hang style. Economical in terms of fabric use, this style of heading can make your window look bigger by using a longer curtain pole so that when drawn back, the fabric sits against the wall and not over the window. A selection of different eyelets can be used and are punched through the fabric of the curtains. They are great for providing soft, wide folds and can be used on both large and small windows.

If you want to enhance the impact of your curtains, we can advise you on a range of additional accessories, including tiebacks, pelmets, valances, upholstery and cushions.

Once made, Chris will visit you to expertly hang and dress your curtains.  Appointments are scheduled at your convenience, including evenings and weekends.
