Curtain ties - tie back patterns

Great looking drapes need great curtain ties, and we have some patterns which have been professionally designed to give you the finishing touch you need.

What makes great curtain ties?

Here are the necessary ingredients for great curtain ties.

  • Size. The embrace of the tie-back should hold the drape back without being too tight.
  • Construction. The tie-back should look attractive and hold its shape so it can do the job of containing the drape.
  • Shape. It should have a pleasing shape, with the proportions sensitive to the width, height and construction of the drape.


To get the correct size for curtain ties use a tape measure - preferably a soft tape measure - and hold it around the drape so it pulls the drape into the required position. Then read off the measurement of the 'embrace' - the total distance around the drape from the hook position.


See the page on how to make a tie-back for details.


Getting the shape right takes time and skill. The sweep of the shape, the depth and curves involved all go to make up the overall look.
