The Product

Part of our range of home furnishings made from our own line of heritage moquettes, this 40cm cushion features a hidden zip and a plush insert. The moquette itself is designed and manufactured for use in passenger transport applications and is therefore extremely durable and has great stain resistance properties. By its nature, moquette is a heavy fabric with a wonderfully tactile texture that has to be felt to be believed. Choose from a duck feather or synthetic insert and this delightfully characterful cushion will add sparkle to your sofa or cheer to your chair.

The Pattern - Charcoal Check

A workhorse of a design with a long history, Charcoal Check first saw use in 1967 when it appeared in the brand new Mk. 2 coaches being introduced by British Rail at the time. This pattern underwent several subtle alterations over the years and we offer its last incarnation in which the light grey bands are slightly more prominent than in its first.

For many years after it ceased to be specified for passenger use, Charcoal Check became the standard design for upholstering the seats in locomotives and multiple unit cabs, and is still used for that purpose to this day. It is a firm favourite with ex-drivers and is enjoying a rennaisance as the cloth of choice for driver's seats in the heritage road transport sector.
