Isla Velvet, Grouse/metre


One of the things we love most about velvet is that it reflects the light in a way other textiles don’t. Isla is far from shiny though, because we make it from cotton and it has a short pile, so the effect is subtle. We’ve added a touch of polyester for durability. Over time, it’ll still get the odd mark or crease where you’ve lent against it and crushed its pile. It’s all part of how velvet matures and gains character.

Grouse is a deep brown that grounds lighter, brighter colours.

  • Velvet is ideal for making luxuriously heavy curtains, but it's too thick for Roman blinds. You can absolutely still use it for a contrasting border along the bottom though.
  • Fabric composition: 90% Cotton 10% Polyester
Width: 142cm
Weight: 0.58kg
Just so you know

There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – although we always try to make these as small as possible – it’s just to be expected with natural fibres. We therefore recommend, if you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, that you order as many metres as you need at the same time. That way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.

The width stated is a well-gauged approximation but, as this is a natural fabric, we allow a tolerance of +/- 5%.

When purchasing this fabric for curtains and blinds, please allow an additional 3% when cutting, as our natural fabrics can be sensitive to changes in humidity.

If ordering more than 30m, please call our Online Team on +44 (0)1793 427 427.

When it comes to smaller items, we don’t hang around.

As soon as your order is in stock, it will wing its way to you via our premier delivery partners at DPD, UPS or Royal Mail and will arrive within three days – although we can’t guarantee this with remote areas such as the Scottish Highlands.

Occasionally we have to send items via separate deliveries from different locations, but we promise you will never incur additional charges when this happens.

Most items are delivered Monday – Friday, 7.30am- 6pm.
