One of our favourites ranges

We love our showroom curtains, so we thought we'd share a bit more information about them here.










The fabric is from the new Baker Lifestyle range by GP and J baker. It is one of our favourite ranges.
The fabric itself is a beautiful linen with a vertical pattern, alternating between woven stripes and an embroidered floral leaf panel.
We have made the curtains using the 'pleating by design' technique, which means that we have carefully calculated the folds of the pleats to correspond with the pattern - one pleat stripes, the next floral leaves, then stripes etc. This creates symmetry and maximises the beautiful pattern by making sure it is bought to the front and not hidden between the folds.


The curtains have been hand-stitched and folded at the heading to create double pinch pleats; this keeps the vertical pattern in view within the heading. To ensure the overall effect is one of true luxury we have interlined the curtains by placing a blanket-like layer of fabric between the main material and the lining. 





The Baker Lifestyle collection includes florals, checks, stripes, embroidered voiles and textured plains; mostly on linen backcloths and all in lovely fresh co-ordinating colour schemes .
