Default What are "rod pocket" curtains?

Okay, again I'm going to show my curtain ignorance. I know all about "tab top" curtains, but when something online says they are "rod pocket" curtains, what exactly does that mean? Does that just mean that the top fabric is folded over so that you can slip a rod through it? As in, you could use any rod you wanted -- decorative or otherwise?

I'm trying to avoid those curtains that require all that fancy stuff -- like pins and pleats and things like that, but I have no clue how to tell when you see a curtain online.

Help?

Default Re: What are "rod pocket" curtains?

Yes.that would be my definition. A pocket is sewn and the rod slipped through. Most of the time there will be a second seam sewn so that the rod slips between the two seams and when the curtain is then pushed together on the rod there is a ruffle at the top.
