Warwick had a great day at the 'October Interiors' show hosted by the Curtain and Bind Makers Friendly Forum (or CABMFF for short) held at Cheltenham Racecourse on Monday October 20th. This event is run by the trade for the trade, and is growing year on year. We were delighted to meet up with our more local customers (although some visitors had travelled from much further afield) and present our new collections: Sabiro, Outdoor and Breeze.
If you would like to see these new ranges please do get in touch and we will arrange for your Warwick Sales Consultant to come for a visit, with or without the apron!
We exhibited at the prestigious London show, Decorex, last month and we had a very busy time!
Syon Park was the perfect setting for the Warwick tmea to present our new Sabiro Wool collection. The wool designs include a plaid, herringbone, narrow stripe and a stunning paisley design. View these new fabrics on our collection page now where you can see how they look made up into furniture.
Our stand was busy throughout the show, and we hope that if you came to see us you were able to speak to a member of staff, if not please do get in touch!
Our sales team were sporting aprons or pinnies made from our wools. Here’s Bill Poppé our Sales Consultant for the Midlands sporting one on a visit to another stand:
And in case you wonder what our stand looked like before the crowds arrived, here’s a few images – we decided to keep it fairly simple to let the fabrics do the talking!
Warwick Fabrics are delighted to be exhibiting at the prestigious Trade Show - Decorex this coming September, at their new venue at Syon Park, West London. We will be along the right near the entrance, stand A62. We hope to meet with many of our existing customers there, and also meet some new ones!
Here's a taster of the new products we will be launching at the show:

This Spring Warwick launched 3 new fabric collections: Legacy Modern, Legacy Textures and our new textured plain Enigma. Legacy is our sub-brand for fabrics that are developed for the re-upholstery industry and need to offer exemplary performance at competitive prices.
This collection of upholstery fabrics brings contemporary design and colours to our re-upholstery and commercial customers. The designs include geometrics, stripes, modern botanicals and textures using easy care fibres to provide a raffia handle, which softens with use.
This collection of three textured plains was designed to work hand-in-hand with Legacy Modern.
Jackson, Hagen and Ridder introduce hard wearing textures in decreasing scale with subtle colour on colour effects.
The subtle slub of Enigma provides a texture akin to a heavy linen, while the chenille adds soft tactility. The colour line comprises 25 carefully selected colours with toned neutrals, soft pastels and a selection of brights.
Enigma is suitable for drapery, upholstery and bedding applications for domestic and commercial environments. Untreated, the fabric may be washed with little shrinking.
We are pleased to announce the release of two print collections with distinctly different looks.
Babylon comprises traditional and Persian inspired designs on a lustrous velvet, with a novelty hunting scene which promises to be a real conversation piece. The look is warm in vintage reds and cooler neutral tones. Babylon fabrics combine a wonderful drape with the benefit of being exceptionally hard-wearing, making them ideal for both curtains and upholstery.
Serendipity is a collection of innovative designs printed in fresh colours on linen cloths. Serendipity is perfect for Spring design and will make a striking window display for our retail customers. With this in mind there is an unusual textured woven design 'Winning' which can be used for accessories. The designs include Suzani swirls, distressed tree of life and multi scale geometrics. The weightly linen cloths lend these prints excellent drape though also useful for upholostery in the home.
We have extended our colour card sample format to include all our natural fibre plains. Colour cards provide designers with space saving samples that are quick to reference and importantly at a much lower cost. Designers can order larger cuttings from our sales desk or via the website.
We are providing two packages, the Designer Rack at £30 including 20 cards and the Contract File at £20 including 12 cards. These costs can be claimed back through our 'Use It or Lose It' programme.

Our fabrics are on show, up and down the country, in the form of Pattern Books and Hangers. Warwick Fabrics has always endeavoured to keep our sampling products reasonably priced, but we appreciate that this can still be a substantial financial commitment at a time when we are all keen to cut our costs, without diminishing what we offer to our customers.
To support our customers and help them with this investment, we run a sampling programme which we call 'Use it or Lose it' - all we ask is that the pattern books are USED. Once an order has been placed from that collection - we raise a credit up to the value of that book.
If you have a Trade Account with us and were not aware of this programme then please call the Sales Office on 01451 822383, or your Warwick Fabrics Sales Consultant.
Use it Love it!
Demand is high for fabrics which are stain repellent, wipe-able, ideally child, wine and generally accident-proof. We appreciate this is a fairly tall order for a fabric, but we think our new 'Thrill to Spill' treated fabrics are up to the job.
Our latest collections - Geometry and Liaison now come with a 'Soil and Stain' finish. This means that liquid 'beads' on the surface and rolls off, spills can easily be blotted up with a clean dry cloth and the finish gives an unmatched resistance to oil and water-based stains.
We cannot predict what life throws at our fabrics, but we do our best to minimize the impact and protect them as much as we can.
