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 - Red Candy Stripe

This design was introduced in the early 1960’s, and first appeared in the electric multiple unit trains which were being introduced in large numbers as part of British Railways' 1955 Modernisation Plan. Subsequently it was applied to many locomotive-hauled coaches during overhauls.

This red version of the pattern was used for smoking compartments, and we also offer its non-smoking compartment sibling, Green Candy Stripe.
