The Product

Part of our range of personal effects made from our own line of heritage moquettes, this 25cm washbag is perfect for holding your bathroom supplies on a trip away. The soft-feel PVC leatherette core gives this item a sturdy yet flexible construction whilst the dual moquette side panels add the class and style. Constructed with a moisture-proof liner and a high quality zip, this item has plenty of internal space and will keep your bathroom items safe and sound whilst travelling.

The Pattern - Bournemouth Blue

Another very recognisable pattern, Bournemouth Blue first came to life in 1967 when the line to Southampton and Bournemouth was electrified and a fleet of existing coaches was rebuilt to provide the new service. The coaches were modernised internally, with extensive use of Formica panelling and a new blue and green fabric pattern for the upholstery.

This popular design was very quickly adopted for the (also new) Mark 2 locomotive hauled coaches which were being built at the time, and went on to last as a standard fitment through the life of British Rail, only being superseded by the new designs which accompanied Sectorisation in the late eighties and early nineties.
