fabric for blinds?

12 replies

Can anyone point me in the right direction for fabric suppliers? I need to get some blinds made up for my new kitchen. I like Cath Kidson but the old discontinued stuff - antique rose etc - nothing currently is quite right. Laura Ashley seems very old and dull. I don't know anyone else! Ikea fabric I know some people won't work with as not great quality.
Help!

thanks!

Globaltex do some nice stuff...

Do you have a Dunelm Mill near you they have lovely fabrics. Or John Lewis ?

I second Globaltex, they have some Cath Kidston-esq polka dots and tilly is a floral print of theirs that I like. You can get some old cath kidston stuff on ebay, just keep and eye out - I want some Ottoman Rose Blue but no luck yet!

thanks all, keeping an eye on eBay, but in the meantime will check out Globaltex...

I ahve never had a problem with IKEA fabric and some of their ticking stripe stuff is great

I agree re Ikea. I have made blinds with their fabrics before and never had any problems. And dit is sooooo cheap.

Ian Mankin also good for ticking stripes, but pricier.

Romo
Harlequin
Jane Churchill

All have decent websites and the quality is excellent.

Osborne and Little and Designers Guild are expensive but you can get them on ebay and are gorgeous colours

thanks everyone! - so much choice! Off to do some internet searching and request some samples. I do really like Ikea - its just last time I took some to a shop and asked them to make it up they said they wouldn't work with it. Maybe they just didn't like the look of me
