Product Description

Looking for a stylish modern heading for your curtains?

Eyelet headings look fabulous in your home and are increasingly popular. The easiest way to achieve this look is to use eyelet header tape. This tape can be affixed easily to any curtain - just follow the straightforward instructions included with your order and on our website. No special tools are needed, just a sewing machine, pen and pair of scissors. This tape includes plastic spacers at the back which will form pleats in the curtain - there are two settings, one giving 2 times fullness and the other giving two and a quarter times fullness. Alternatively the spacers can be cut off to allow a free-form spacing. For eyelet curtains you will always need an even number of eyelet rings on each curtain. The eyelet rings are plastic and clip onto a metal ring in the eyelet tape. There are 6 eyelets per metre of tape.The price quoted is per 6 eyelets of tape (just under 1 metre) and includes the plastic eyelet rings.

Eyelet tape width = 8cm
Internal dimension of eyelet ring = 4cm
Distance from centre of one eyelet to centre of next eyelet = 17cm
Distance from edge of one eyelet to edge of the next = 11cm

Number of eyelets per metre = 6

To buy eyelet tape first choose the eyelet colour from the list - see pictures of the colours available.
Next choose the number of metres of tape you need and adjust the quantity.

Here is an easy calculator for the most common requirements using 54"/140cm curtain fabric (or you can simply measure your curtains) :
For 1 curtain with 1 width of fabric you will need 8 eyelets - order quantity of 2.
For a pair of curtains with 1 width of fabric in each curtain you will need 16 eyelets - order quantity of 3.
For a pair of curtains with 1.25 widths of fabric in each curtain you will need 20 eyelets - order quantity of 4.

  1. Eyelet tape

    Posted by Anita Bird on 25th Apr 2014

    the tape is a little on the narrow side so that when the sewing machine gets to an eyelet it veers off a little. The tape could do with being just that bit wider. Also, pressing on the eyelets was difficult as my material was quite thick so a couple of them got bent as the metal was quite soft. Having said that, the customer service from Livingstone was excellent so can't fault them.
