About Eyelet Curtains
Eyelet curtains offer a natural pleated look. Eyelet curtains have metal-edged holes at the top. These metal openings are usually silver-colored. The curtains are often floor length with soft pleats running vertically down the fabric. An eyelet curtain panel may be made of heavy or light weight fabric and may be lined with thin material. Eyelet curtains are often hung in two panels with one panel on each side of the window. If tie back fittings are attached to the sides of the window, the curtains can be held open and then taken out of the tie back fittings to close them. For a very large window, or sets of windows along one wall or two walls, eyelet curtain panels may be hung in pairs in the center of each window. For extra style, two different colors or two shades of the same color could be used for each set. In this type of eyelet curtain hanging, fabric tie backs may hold the panels in the middle of the window panes, and when the tie backs are undone, the curtains can be closed.
