BREAKING NEWS IN THE WINDOW BLIND INDUSTRY

SHAW FABRIC NEWS

We have temporarily stopped using the Palm Beach – Light Filter – as a change in the manufacturing process has resulted in some undesirable effects and therefore is not to our standards.

To ensure a high-quality standard for your customers, we will not be using this fabric until the issue has been rectified.

In the meantime, a suggested fabric substitution is Texstyle’s MetroShade Light Filter (it is also in the same price groups as the Palm Beach Light Filter – only slighter lighter in weight).

COMPLETE MANUFACTURING NEWS

As most of you would know, we have been gratefully busy in the past few months – unusually so at this time of the year which is great news for us, not so good for extended delivery times…

Sooooooooo… after much deliberation, many of a discussion, lots of frantic hand gesturing (Italian style) and heaps of coffee (also Italian style) we are proud to announce that we are in the process of purchasing another state-of-the-art cutting table.

This will take place in the very near future and assist us in bringing the delivery times back to the good old days.

ARENA HONEYCOMB – New Update Packs Available

In Short…….. Hadara, Haven and Essence B/O have been discontinued. Complete new fabric ranges have been added, being the Hadley and Hendrix.

AND THE WINNER IS…

After much discussion and banging our heads together with our supplier to get you a better deal,

(I have been told that it hurt a lot but I can’t confirm this because I ducked at the last second)

It has been updated and you are the WINNER!!!
Call us for a copy, we don’t bite hard.
