My Grandma made a fabulous travelling play rug out of quilting squares – she wadded it inside and backed it with fleece – it is absolutely perfect and I love rolling around on it!
With Christmas suddenly fast approaching we have created some christmas gift pages on the website to give you inspiration and solve your christmas present dilemmas ! We offer a whole range of fabulous stripy gifts for men, women, children, grandparents, inlaws, friends, secret santas, stocking fillers based on the quirky British Deckchair Stripe for the Home, Beach and Garden.
From merino wool scarves, gorgeous luxury merino & cashmere or lambswool throws in our quickstep and ballroom stripes to gardening gloves, windbreaks, beach mats, striped aprons and matching ovengloves that will brighten up any kitchen or give a touch of class to the man that mans the BBQ!
We have some cute aprons for toddlers with patchwork pockets in over 20 of our stripes and bigger aprons for Children.
We were privileged to be invited to a small get-together at Media City and yesterday evening gathered there to receive a memento for the BBC project which we were involved with from the start by ID:SR as a supplier of fabrics for soft furnishings within the complex.
It was fantastic to see the building at the completed stage (the security was like Fort Knox!) and finally meet the genius designers and architects who had worked with all the staff within the BBC to come up with a solution to working in the media in the 21st Century.
There are very few offices as such – areas are available for meetings with stunning ‘pods’ to sit in and if standing on the top floor, the view down is dizzying!
We were presented with a beautiful little booklet entitled ‘A Place to Provoke Smiles’ with text and illustrations on the ethos and construction of the project which involved many British, particularly local suppliers and manufacturers.
An evening to remember!
Alan Titchmarsh’s new friday night gardening programme ‘LOVE YOUR GARDEN’ featured Deckchairstripes Bunting and Deckchair covered in Waltzing Vintage Deckchair Canvas in the Seaside Garden episode on the 16th Sept on ITV.
If you missed it you can watch it on ITV Player – our products are featured in part 2 after the break when he transforms a first floor flat roof viewing platform.
Our long awaited Gardening Gloves have arrived – available in 2 styles, short garden gloves and long rose garden gloves. They are made with premium quality leather with our signature Quickstep stripe in heavy cotton on the backs.
Shown here are our Long Rose Gardening Gloves for women. The longer length gauntlet offers wrist and lower arm protection and will make light work of pruning the roses or other prickily specimens in your garden!
Because of the protective yet supple leather, breathable cotton and double panels around the thumbs offering excellent finger and palm protection, your hands will feel flexible and comfortable at all times when gardening in our leather garden gloves.
Available in S/M and M/L – Ladies Gardening Gloves from Deckchairstripes
Going on holiday? Here at Deckchairstripes we have some fab stripes to take to the Beach. From Windbreaks to Beach Mats, Extra Large Beach Towels to Oilcloth lined Beach Bags and if you really want to be the envy of everyone take a look at our Beach Tents.
Sometimes we come across one-off individual and historic deckchairs which we are unable to sell on the website because they are unrepeatable and often very rare. We restore them (but not too much because the age is part of the charm) and will offer them here.
We are offering three rocking deckchairs from c. 1930 which are stamped ‘Castle Woodcrafts Helmsley (York)’. They are in excellent condition and very capacious with curving arms and fold easily for storage.
The workmanship and colour of the wood is beautiful. The chair pictured is covered in Shooting Deckchair canvas, but it may be covered in any of our stripes of your choice.
Price is £195.00 each
If interested, please call us to discuss your individual requirements 0845 500 1 005
