Underground by Kirkby Design - classic fabrics from the London Underground reproduced


If you fancy making something out of an iconic cloth, you should check out the Underground range by Kirkby Design, which offers fabrics used on London Underground carriages in the middle of the 20th century.

Its a collaboration between British fabric firm Kirkby Design and Transport for London, offering cloths used over the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. The designs are Piccadilly, Marylebone Bakerloo, District and Southbank, each one offered in a variety of colour options and sold by the metre. Great for a reupholstery job, your own cushions or anything else that grabs your imagination.

Some of those moquette fabrics are pictured here, but check out the maker's site to see all of them up close. Also see the site for details of stockists, but as a guide, you are looking at around £75 per metre.
