What Plain fabrics do you recommend for curtains

I offer plain linen union curtain fabric, textured wool and velvet fabrics for curtains. 

Stylish, modern and utterly versatile, our Plain linen unions fabrics,  work perfectly in their own right, as well as coordinating with any of our printed fabrics and wallpapers.

For Plain curtain fabric made in the UK choose from the selection of colours, from neutrals to softer shades of washed colours such as Duck Egg and Pigeon, sophisticated shades of grey such as Dove, Scree and Charcoal and brighter signature accents such as Sweet Pea and Saffron. They are suitable for any interior, from homes to hotels.

Our Plain fabrics are made from a linen and cotton blend:  40% Linen and 60% organic cotton. The cotton gives the extra strength and a degree of flexibility. The Plain Linen Unions are a medium weight and have a good rub test making them suitable for upholstery and great for blinds and curtains.

You need to choose the best shade for your curtains by considering the way the room faces, the amount of light you get and the atmosphere you want to create.  Do you want a light and airy room or are you trying to create a warm and cosy scheme?

Think about using a contrasting colour for the leading edge, to add some interest, for instance a Sweet Pea chair with Charcoal piping.

Which of your fabric designs, colours and patterns work well with your plain fabric range?

All my printed fabrics work well with the Plains, the colours are designed to match and coordinate, and for instance the subtle shade of Clay in my printed fabrics matches the Plain Clay Linen Union.

Please ask for fabric samples and see the colours in your rooms. If you order a half metre returnable sample you can pin it to your present curtains and see how it looks. All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union making them suitable for curtains, blinds, cushions and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help to measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.

Poles:

WidthIf you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)

Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole, we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement. 

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.

Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.

                                   

                                           

 

Tracks

Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.

Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this. 

Please note, we will add 30cms for hem allowance.
