Designing your Upholstery Fabric
It all starts with a discussion. You might already know what fabric you want me to create, or you might need some guidance. Maybe you have an existing fabric you want to work from, or maybe you just have a few colour ideas. No problem, I will work with you to design your perfect fabric. We can speak over phone and email, or if you're within travelling distance of London, we can arrange a meeting at my shop.
Creation of Samples
After these initial discussions and once I have received your deposit, I create hand-woven samples which I send to you for discussion as we hone in on your perfect feel and pattern. There's no need to rush this process - I normally make at least 4-6 samples and we keep working until we have exactly the fabric you want.
Weaving and Delivery
It normally takes me 2-3 weeks to weave a bespoke fabric, obviously taking longer the greater length of fabric you require. Then the fabric is finished by steam ironing and folding and sent to you.
Working with Your Upholsterer
It's a good idea to find your upholsterer before commissioning your fabric. Your upholsterer will be able to tell you exactly how much fabric you need and may have lots of other useful input and ideas.
