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 - Provincial Blue

The end of the British Rail era saw a move away from the traditional stitched moquette method of upholstering, to one which involved fitted repp-type covers that could be easily removed for cleaning. These did not prove to be as successful as had been hoped and there was a gradual move back towards the traditional techniques and materials. Provincial Blue (so-called because it was introduced by the 'Provincial' sector, later to be known as Regional Railways) was one of the first moquettes to be used after the 'washable cover' episode and went on to see widespread use within other sectors.
