Curtains are still one of the most popular window treatments, whether they are just for show or fully functioning, they immediately soften and finish a room. Fabric & Co. provide a bespoke curtain making service where we use your measurements to make up your curtains in a fabric of your choice. All our curtains are finished to the highest possible standard. We offer pencil pleat gathered headings or hand finished double, triple and goblet pleats.
They can be simply lined with our 200gsm crease resistant lining or Ezedrape blackout (both in ivory) or go the extra mile and have them interlined. The interlining not only gives the fabric more weight and body, making them more luxurious but also helps with heat and sound insulation, as well as protecting the fabric. All curtains are finished with mitred and weighted corners.
Pencil pleat curtains have are a simple gathered heading, which have an informal look. This is an ideal heading for smaller windows perhaps in cottages or in bedrooms.
Hand finished headings are a more formal and decorative heading. This kind of pleat is more tailored and looks at its best hung beneath a pole, below the rings. By hanging the curtains below the rings the curtains will concertina into a neat 'stack back' which is perfect for windows which have limited space either side and also for optimising light in room.
Roller Blinds are both a practical and decorative options for a window treatment. In kitchens and bathrooms they offer a functional solution but under a pelmet or neatly fitted into a window recess they also have a clean, sharp and attractive finish.
Roman Blinds are a popular alternative to curtains, they can be neatly fitted inside or outside the window recess and are both practical and decorative.
Founded by Simon and Angie Lewin, St Jude’s collaborates with an eclectic range of artists to create and print unique fabrics. The fabrics and wallpapers are printed in short runs in Britain.
The idea for the company was born in 2005, when a collector of Angie’s prints mentioned that her work might translate well onto printed fabric. Intrigued by that idea, they spent some time looking into how textiles are produced.
Starting with the simple aim of producing two of Angie’s designs and taking it from there. Since then St Jude’s has become a small but thriving business. They were named winners in the Elle Decoration British Design Awards in both 2011 and 2012.
They’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of artists, makers and printers, including Mark Hearld, Ed Kluz and Emily Sutton. They give the artists they collaborate with control over important aspects of the process, such as choosing colourways. And always provide them with a proper credit for their work.
St Jude's take an interest in fine art and commercial design, but are particularly inspired by work produced in the middle ground between the two. Edward Bawden’s graphic design and illustration work for London Transport, for example, and Eric Ravilious’ ceramics for Wedgwood. It appears that some wonderful and unexpected things can happen when a talented individual meets a visually-aware organisation. This is very much the spirit fostered at St. Jude’s.
By working with artists to produce fabric designs, St Judes have created a unique range of furnishing fabrics. A very Britsih product the is cloth printed in London. Fabric designs are by Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld, Emily Sutton, Old Town, Alice Stevenson, Ed Kluz & Jonny Hannah.
