When the Central line got its new trains in 1992, the designers gave the public a say on which moquette would adorn the seats. The winner of the poll was this one - Check - and was designed by Sothcott. The design was repetitive squares so that any damage could be cut out and a new square embroidered into place. Red and blue were chosen, which remain London Underground’s colour scheme. The design lasted well, so expect a hard-wearing product range from us.
