The London Transport roundel travelled well past the boundaries of the capital after World War 2. The Green Line and London Country bus networks penetrated Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Essex and Kent. And those joyful, rural journeys used vehicles like the Regal Four (RF) single decker with an exquisite moquette design. Green Line whispers the countryside, class and geometry and it began being used on seats in 1952. The moquette was designed by Ingles and Dutton. A block and line formation in dark green, olive and red was purposely created to enhance the striking optical effect and to accentuate the welcome to these vehicles. But as was the case with a number of designs across London Transport in posters and fabrics, red symbolised the city and green was the emblem of the countryside. Green Line is a perfect homage to long, leisurely bus trips as the rolling hills flew by. 


Perhaps the most rewarding projects are the ones you design and complete yourself. We sell moquette off the roll, by the linear metre, for your own upholstery and handicraft endeavours. Whether you fancy a set of 4 dining chairs in District, a footstool in Straub or even a car interior in bygone Bournemouth, we have rolls of moquette to choose from. Top tip: Moquette looks great when mounted and framed too. 125cm wide sold by the metre, delivered as a continuous length.

Care Instructions

Moquette is super-duper tough. If it gets a bit dirty, a good firm brush should do the job... For something really stubborn try some carpet cleaner. If in doubt - drop us a line.
