Are your products fully bespoke?

We understand that your customers come to you for your design flair and your ability to supply soft furnishings which look truly bespoke and not off-the-shelf.

Therefore we will make soft furnishings as bespoke as you can design them.

What Types of curtains do you made?

There are many different styles of curtains and different headings, some of which have more than one name. We are familiar with all of them.

Whilst our speciality is hand sewn curtains and Roman blinds, we are as comfortable making interlined swags and tails as we are simple machine sewn pencil pleat curtains.

All of our pinch pleats and goblets are sewn by hand.

Do you supply fabrics?

We have accounts with many fabric suppliers from budget to top-end and are more than happy to supply this for you if needed.

What is interlining?

Interlining is additional thick fabric placed between the face fabric and the lining which gives a more luxurious and cosy feel to the window.

It can also help to insulate it from the cold and noise.

Could you help me work out the quantity of fabric needed?

Yes, no problem.

Do you offer check measure and fitting?

We can quote for measuring and fitting.
