Goblet Pleat

A goblet pleat is a drapery header type that involves forming a circle with the top few inches of the curtain, and then pinching together a few inches below to form three pleats. This type of pleat is a hybrid of a cartridge pleat and a pinch pleat. The pleats can be enforced using pleater tape and pleater hooks which ensure that the pleat stays in place and lays properly. The pleater hooks are dual purpose, as they synch together the fabric to form and keep pleats, while also having a loop at the opposite end that allows it to be attached to a rod. Curtains with goblet pleats can be hung using hardware such as a rod and rings, an exposed track, a hidden track with cornice, or a curved track.
