The Product

Authentic heritage era moquette now available by the metre for upholstery and handicraft projects large and small.  Comes as a custom cut piece directly from the roll, your chosen size in length and 1.27 metres in width. All our moquettes have been faithfully and accurately recreated from clean, non-faded samples of original fabric and archive documentation, and are manufactured using authentic techniques.

Our moquettes are primarily made for use in the restoration of rolling stock at the nation's heritage steam railways, and as such this cloth is finished by hand to comply with all UK Railway Safety, Durability and Flammability requirements.  It is therefore an extremely hard-wearing material with great stain-resistance properties.  This cloth is the real deal and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.

The Pattern - Autumn Flowers

This design was commissioned shortly after the war by the Pullman Car Company (an independent concern whose vehicles operated with all of The Big Four company's trains) and is unusual in having no less than twelve different coloured yarns in its make-up.

The floral motif of this pattern has been carefully arranged so that it can be used in both horizontal and vertical orientations. It is thus suitable for most types of seating, including the individual armchairs that were the hallmark of Pullman travel. Featuring a warm yet neutral colour pallette that goes with almost anything, this design is a favourite for domestic projects.


All by-the-metre orders are cut to order and shipped using a tracked 48hr courier. Small orders are sent boxed whilst larger orders are sent on a roll. We take our environmental impact seriously and try to reduce packaging materials wherever possible. We only use plastic packaging materials where absolutely necessary and we are constantly looking for new ways to make all transactions as carbon-light as possible.
