Hi everyone!
I am making curtains for a friend, and they have a sliding rail type thing for curtains.  The curtains will hang with little hooks that slide across the rail, and so she bought a bunch of heading tape - no pleats, just flat heading tape.  She did not buy the hooks yet, but when I look at the tape, which is like this stuff:
http://www.calicolaine.co.uk/Curtains-Accessories-Curtain-Tape-c3_53/3%E2%80%99%E2%80%99-Heading-Tape-%2812-rolls%29-p1703.html
it has little channels that run from top to bottom for the hook to go into, and each channel is open at the top and bottom - one end is neat (like a selvedge) and the other is more slubby.  Does it matter which is the top of the tape and which is the bottom?

Thank you for any help!

edited - okay, reading more online, and she did mention that the hooks had 3 prongs, so I guess pleats will form on their own, but still, does it matter which is at the top of the curtain?  My guess is not, but...
