Back in 1965 Misha Black commissioned a moquette for London Transport which would become a design icon. The block pattern of blues and greens is known as Straub, after its designer - Marianne Straub. The striking pattern was originally intended to launch the Victoria line in the late 60s but wasn’t ready in time. So it found its way onto the Bakerloo, Northern and Piccadilly lines instead. Some buses even sported Straub too. Like ‘District’, its synonymous with London’s design past and many of us look at this particular moquette with true fondness and happy memories of travelling around the capital. Have a slice of history for your life.

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.
