Pinch Pleated, these types of curtains have small set of pleats anywhere from two to five in a grouping that are evenly spaced across the top of the panel. The pleats on these drapes can also be called fingers, hence the most popular style is the three finger pinch pleat. Each pleat is stitched a point only a couple of inches below the top hem, allowing the folds to billow out from the pleats, adding plenty of fullness below and interesting detail above. For a more contemporary look, two‐fingered pleats are a more tailored style. These types of curtains attach to the rings or a traverse rod using metal pin hooks that are inserted at the back of each group of pleats. This style is widely used for more traditional design styles.
"Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape," advises Lana Lawrence, vice president of Anthony Lawrence‐Belfair. She also suggests working with a larger sample of about 2 yards or more to get a good idea of how the material will drape or pleat, especially for costlier custom window treatment projects. Designers advise that linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are optimum choices because they have the best qualities for hanging and draping.
