Why choose a wrought iron curtain pole? Why buy from Made by the Forge?

We make all of our curtain poles, rods and finials here in our forge in Suffolk using traditional skills. We use solid 20mm round bars for the iron curtain poles. They are heavier than hollow curtain poles but much stronger. They'll look great for many years in your home and we offer a lifetime guarantee on all of our products. You can choose from a variety of curtain pole finials also all hand forged. Our curtain rings are super strong and will not break. We offer 2 different types of finish on the curtain poles - matt black and natural beeswax. Both are traditional and look stunning. Beeswax curtain poles will look particularly good if you have exposed timbers or a country cottage. Matt black curtain poles look great in almost any setting.

Please take a look at our customer feedback page and take a look at the hundreds of kind emails we have received, along with photos of curtain poles, rods, pole brackets and finials. If you have a tricky space, we can make you a bespoke curtain pole and bespoke brackets.

If it's made out of metal we can normally create it - using traditional skills of course.

Please contact us with your requirements and we will be very pleased to help

"Dress your windows with sustainable poles.. Best of British... these curtain poles last a lifetime and help support English cottage industries."
