Tab Top Curtains

Tab Top and Tie Top Curtains

Tab Top Curtains

Curtains or panels with fabric loops (tabs) at the top edge/head. They are threaded through poles or rods.

Tab top curtains or panels can be constructed with less fullness than tape headed curtains saving on the amount of fabric required.

Tab top curtains or panels are best not used where they will be drawn frequently as they don’t move easily over the poles and will wear quickly.

They are suitable for use as cafe curtains.

They are a popular form of ready made curtains or panels, or curtains that are available to purchase complete from a store. They are available in a multitude of colors, weights, fabrics and designs and easy ro hang on a simple rod system. They are great to use as a decorative curtain or panel over a window with blinds to add color or texture as side curtains. They can puddle on the floor and if in a sheer fabric, they look great blowing gently in the wind or subtly difussing moonlight!
