London Underground Colindale (leaf) Moquette Fabric Sold by the Metre

Regular price £80.00

Tax included.

This London Underground moquette is a favourite among collectors for its repetitive rural design - apt considering it was fitted to the revolutionary 1938 stock tube train, which carried passengers from the city to the suburbs daily. Its vivid mix of reds and greens in a vertical leaf formation was commissioned by Christian Barman, the then Publicity Officer for London Transport and was designed by Marion Dorn. It’s thought the colour contrast was to accentuate the red action of the city with the green serenity of the capital’s ‘burbs. Found on the brand new trains on the Bakerloo and Northern lines, this timeless classic is available in a variety of product lines.

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.
