London’s buses were once ablaze with the maroon, brown, gold and green threads that make up the Routemaster moquette. Industrial designer Douglas Scott was given the privilege of styling both the interior and exterior of the Routemaster bus. The moquette was integral to his concept. The tartan style accompanied the yellow ceilings (a colour affectionately dubbed ‘Fagnolia’ as a result of tobacco smoke) and ribbed floors. Nearly 2,900 Routemasters were built and have served London for decades. Now a fading sight on London’s streets, you can own a piece of history for your home.
Just when you thought your gadget was the best thing ever, why not max out the joy with a stylish moquette case. Turn heads on trains with these nostalgic, quilted and lined pouches which not only look great, they’ll protect your screen too. Dimensions: 25cm x 20cm.
