We have recently added as many as 17 exciting new fabrics to our fabric range. Many of these are already available to view in our 4 London showrooms, where you can see them actually made up as curtains or blinds. Over the coming weeks, we look forward to showcasing our new fabrics on the website. In the meantime, here is a small taster – Anais.
Already proving extremely popular with our customers, Anais is a gorgeous woven, textured, random dyed yarn. This means you get a vibrant mix of colours within the yarn itself. So, rather than a solid colour effect, Anais gives you get a softer, fluid blend which works really well on large curtains or blinds.

Anais is a flexible fabric and works equally well as made to measure curtains and / or Roman blinds. Below is an example of a Roman blind for a large kitchen window, made with Anais Shingle (the inset borders are Linen Chintz).
