Green Fabric

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note. (Edward Lear: publ.1871)

Green should always be the one of the first colours to consider when choosing fabric for that redecoration project, upholstery hobby or for those new curtains you must have to spruce up the living room. This highly underrated colour is having somewhat of a renaissance. From a psychological standpoint green is the colour of growth, the colour of Spring, of renewal and rebirth and as such can have a powerful effect on the psyche. Green is a little bit of a multi-layered colour for instance a deep green can evoke thoughts of power and wisdom while a lighter green can evoke thoughts of freshness, spring and general happiness.

Now we might not have any pea-green boats available (striped or otherwise!) but The Stripes company does have a delectable selection of green fabrics plain or striped for use around your home. There are green fabrics for the outside, from deckchairs to sun shelters, green fabric for the inside such as Green and White Gingham tablecloths or roman blinds, green curtain fabric and for the technologically inclined out there we even have green ipad/kindle covers!

Fifty Shades of green! so what would you use this fabric for?

Home: Is where the heart (or hearth for some!) and as such is the most obvious place in which we look to impart a little of our personality. Fabrics are a simple way to bring a splash of colour or renew old accessories like cushions, curtaines or maybe create a simple wall hanging with some fabric in a frame or stretched across a canvas.

There’s nothing quite like fashioning something new yourself. The Stripes Company Oilcloth Fabric can be used to create aprons, table mats or many other options as this water resistant, wipeable material is durable as well as versatile.

Beach: You don’t have to be a lifeguard to make a statement on the beach. From our beach collection we have everything from Beach mats to Tote bags to Espadrilles. You could easily add to your beach accessory set using green fabric from us (plain or striped) to create picnic basket covers for example.

Garden: Now for the green-fingered among you your garden is usually a sanctuary of lush greenery, an oasis of calm and then the daydream ends and its back to the reality of pulling weeds, mowing and planting! Its all worth it though when the sun starts shining and you are reclining in your majestic green fabric hammock or deckchair under your sun shelter sipping what else but a Mojito!

Directors Chair Replacement Canvas

One of our lovely customers told us:

Big thanks for convincing me that the 45cm width deckchair fabric would do the job as directors chair replacement canvas …. It was perfect and very easy to copy pattern from original directors chair covers.

Am thrilled with my handiwork and we’ve had these directors chairs for 19 years….can’t believe I haven’t done this before now!!

Promised I’d send photo of finished directors chairs……this is Elmo proudly displaying the newly covered directors chair in it’s glory.
