Reduce waste and create something beautiful! Many of our customers buy our fabrics for curtains, blinds and upholstery. Offcuts are not uncommon, and nobody likes to see these wasted. Lampshades, cushions and draft excluders are some of the creative ideas we`ve seen. Not only do they prevent waste, they create a unique piece that won`t be found on the High Street. Do share your creations!

We are delighted to have been included in the recent renovation of The Stables restaurant at The Manor House Hotel, Alsager. Set in a 17th century farmhouse with original features, it is brimming with rustic charm. Befittingly our Manor House collection was selected - Tresco Claret and Audley Dove, along with Compton from our new Botanical Collection.
Neutrals are a popular colour choice - they are calming and timeless. Elevate by adding layers of pattern or texture for a sophisticated look. On the cutting table today are two great examples - a monotone floral and tonal ikat. Pattern gives added interest to these subtle tones. Pictured here are Celeste Stone and Arlo Stone, both 100% cotton, from the Solstice Collection.
Are you making pancakes today? Favourite toppings? It`s not very exciting but sometimes you can`t beat lemon and sugar on a freshly made crepe 😋 We do not have any pancake related fabrics, but we do have some fantastic florals for the fastly approaching (we hope) Spring! This is Norton in Duck Egg from the Cotswold Collection. If you haven`t seen this collection yet then do check it out on our website. It features block prints and florals, mostly small scale, in lovely pastel tones. Think relaxed, country style. The fabric is a cotton/linen blend, drapes wonderfully and is suitable for upholstery.
We had to share these beautiful eyelet curtains made by Brae Interiors. They used Lewis Cobweb, 100% pure new wool, from the Highland Wool Collection II. A great example of how a wool plaid can be used in a more modern scheme.
Brae Interiors, Conon Bridge Chess Tartan wool curtains fitted last week in this new cottage. The colours work so well with the choice of flooring. The kitchen patio curtains are some of the longest windows I have done. All ready now for the client to move in.
Apex windows are notoriously tricky. Architects don`t always think about the practicalities of dressing these windows! They look fantastic but to manage privacy and light, some window treatment is often required. I think you`ll agree that @a_m_curtain_and_blind_design has nailed this one! They look absolutely fantastic. These grand scale apex double pleated curtains are blackout lined and dressed for maximum impact. The fabric is Rialto Plaza from the Venezia Collection.
Are you familiar with `toile` fabric? Traditionally a `toile de jouy` was a French linen depicting a romantic, pastoral scene in a single colour. The charming scenes portray everyday life, usually in the countryside. Modern day toiles encompass the same style but depict urban or alternative daily life. For example, our `Hathi` toile focuses on life in the Indian jungle.
Hathi is available in 4 jewel colours, pictured here is Sapphire.
