You can’t help but think of train trips to your auntie’s house by the seaside when you spot a moquette cushion made of Trojan. It was introduced on British Rail’s Kent lines from 1958 and was still used until the 1980s, so it’s earned its place in the moquette hall of fame. Nearly every Mark 1 carriage ever built for British Rail carried the Trojan moquette in its Second (or Standard) Class sections. Red, black, blue, white and yellow lines on a grey background give huge scope to fit the colour scheme of your home, but it’s the nostalgia this moquette conjures up that’s perhaps the most powerful thing about it. If you know Trojan, you probably love it. And if you don’t, why not? It’s a piece of design and textile history.


There’s no escaping moquette in some houses - there’s even some in the bathroom. Our washbags are unbelievably stylish and give bath time an air of nostalgia. Measuring 20cm x 10cm x 10cm and available in a range of popular moquettes, they are great for your essentials at home or while on a getaway railway trip. Waterproof inner and a robust zip make them long-lasting too.

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.
