Striped Curtains

Curtains are another popular project with The Stripes Company customers and Alison used ‘Cricket’ duck egg blue and beige interior stripe fabric to make these stunning long striped curtains. 

‘Am completely delighted with the fabric, the support I had on the phone from The Stripes Company and the super fast delivery.

Thank you, I couldn’t be happier with the final result. Please see pictures of the curtains I made.’

Camper Van Conversion!

What could better sum up the ethos of Make Do And Mend than restoring old vehicles back to their former glory? Across the nation hardy Brits are busy in sheds and garages mending, stitching and cajoling their old broken machines into shiny examples of their kind. Of these restorations nothing is more suited to The Stripes Company fabrics than the vintage camper van conversion. Either through reupholstery, new curtains or deckchairs for the outside, a camper van conversion provides opportunity galore for a bit of retro Make Do And Mend!

Over the years we have been sent many examples of camper van conversions using our stripey fabric, here are a few of our favourites:

Camper Van Blinds

Jay used sailing interior stripe fabric and navy & sky blue duo bobble fringe to make blinds for the camper van, Bertie.

“We have been filming today for the channel 4 programme, George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, and I just wanted to send you a picture of the blinds in situ in the van. I hope you like them!”

We certainly do!
