A-Z Window Treatments and Curtain Hardware part VI

 

Our drapery and hardware lesson continues with even more terms and definitions. Part six educates us about terms such as Stack-back, and Ruching.

T
Tab-Top Curtains: Curtains with fabric bands attached to the top into which a decorative curtain rod is inserted.
Tension Rod: A curtain rod which stays in place inside the window frame through spring tension. Graber Spring Tension Rods offer the popular oval spring tension rod. Available in 4 adjustable sizes: 16-24″, 22-36″, 36-60″ and 48-84”, they come only in white. The oval tension rod is great for small mounting surfaces and no drill or screws are required.
Tie-Tab Curtains: Similar to tab-top curtains, but with ribbons or fabric bands tied over the rod, instead of sewn in place.
Tiebacks : Fabric bands, cords, or other material that shape the curtain or drape holding them back from the window.
Traverse Rod: Adjustable drapery rods that open and close the window treatment by pulling a cord.
Trim: Decorative cording, braids, or fringes applied to the edges or hems of draperies, to match or contrast the panel fabric.
Triple Fullness: A fabric panel that is three times the width of the window. Often sheers and lightweight curtains are made in triple fullness.

V
