With Our New Velvet and Stripes Soft Furnishing Collection
At the time when Scarlett O’Hara had the notion to tear down the green curtains at Tara to make a beautiful dress in the iconic ‘Gone With The Wind’, velvet was considered to be the height of luxury and wealth. With her new finery, she was hoping to give her intended beau, Rhett Butler, the impression of survival against the odds, and ultimately succeed in the face of impending doom as the American Civil war took hold.
Velvet adds Comforting Touch
Hopefully, better days are on the horizon for us also, but velvet adds a very comforting touch in uncertain times – especially with the change of season from Summer into Autumn and Winter.
The Stripes Company are now offering a new range of soft cotton velvets in bright jewel colours to mix with our popular Interior Stripe Fabrics, which together make stunning combinations for cushions, bags and throws.
Because there as so many possible combinations, we are leaving it up to our customers to decide which colour options to choose and add embellishments using any of our fabulous trims or piping.
Furthermore we guarantee that they are a million miles away from Scarlett’s dowdy greens with matching tie backs and will leave customers to rattle their own pelmets (so to speak)!.
Made to Measure – in House Stitchers
There are some ideas on the website, which you can buy in the combinations and sizes shown. But if you wish to have them made in your own choice of sizes and colours, please contact us with your requirements and ideas, and our in-house stitchers will make especially for you.
