Bespoke & Hand Made

Our talented seamstresses have the skills to transform even the blandest of windows into exceptional visual statements. Whether your preference is for traditional grandeur or a simple tailored look, our designers work along side our seamstresses to provide you with beautifully hand made creations.

Unless requested, all our curtains, blinds and soft furnishings are hand sewn and finished to the highest of standards. We only use premium cotton linings and interlinings to enable the furnishings to sit and hang perfectly.

All our decorative curtain styles are measured out, hand pleated and hand sewn. Our most popular headings are French and Double Pleat, Reverse Pleat, Knife Pleat, Goblet and Cartridge Pleat. We also offer more intricate headings such as a Cuff Top Drapery Panel and Basket Weave.

We also offer an array of curtain styles on a tape heading. For maximum durability, the tapes are machined on. Our most popular headings are 1”, 2”, 3” or 6” Pencil Pleat with Upstands in either the same fabric or a contrast, Puff Ball which is filled and stab stitched in place to hold its shape and an attached contrast fabric valance with either a hand sewn valance heading or plain.

All our curtain headings are available to view in the Curtain Room and any of our headings can be finished with buttons, contrast panelling or trimmings.

We also offer a selection of blind styles in either fabric or wood. The most popular being the traditional Roman Blind. Our roman blinds are all hand stab stitched across (unless you request otherwise) to prevent unsightly stitch lines across each fold. All our tracks comply with Child Safety Standards and are geared to enable easy control of the blinds. In addition we hand make the following soft furnishings: -

  • Pelmets – Tape or Upholstered – Shaped or Straight
  • Cushions
  • Headboards – Shaped or Straight, Plain or Deep Buttoned
  • Bed Throws
  • Bed Valances
  • Full Upholstery Service

We have a large variety of Tie Backs, Trimmings and Poles to compliment any of our curtain styles. Samples of these are available to order or feel free to come and browse in our Curtain Room.
