How’s this for a quirky moquette? Peer into a train driver’s cab of yesteryear and you might just spot this. Smokey was the moquette of choice for train drivers’ seats and was introduced in the 1970s. Because of its location, where other moquettes in passenger areas may well have been refreshed or replaced, drivers were treated to fewer upgrades, so you may still spot this design on preserved railways. Smokey remains a perfect gift for former or retiring drivers, who will have fond memories of this design. 

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.
