New Etamine collectionsJun 07, 2019

We love collections which work a theme and have a strong back story to them. Etamine are particularly good at recreating an atmosphere or a vibe of a period or location. Their two latest collections are no different.

Voyage à Tunis is inspired by the famous journey to Tunisia taken by the painters Paul Klee, August Macke and Louis Moilliet in 1914. The colour palette, patterns and stylisations of this collection replicate the light of North Africa and the unique atmosphere found there. The lead design Voyage à Tunis reinterprets Paul Klee motifs and his distinctive colour palette. There are also embroidered designs, heavily textured wide widths and painterly jacquard weaves. See the collection page HERE.



Etamine's second release is Promenade Des Anglais. This collection celebrates the legendary Promenade Des Anglais on the Côte d’Azur with colourful yarns and prints, sophisticated textures and weaves. Together they embody the bustling Mediterranean spirit and it's sun-bleached colours. The lead design is Ballade, a contemporary print with striding figures painted in watercolours. Like Voyage à Tunis there are a number of wide width drapery designs with beautiful woven textures. The design Petite Terrasse is also worth a special mention - it's a handwoven, large-scale houndstooth design with summery colours and plenty of texture. See the colleciton page HERE.



We'd love you to call in to a Unique Showroom and see these fabulous new releases.

What becomes of our cuttings?!Apr 26, 2019

We originally posted about this topic six years ago and thought it is worth mentioning again, particularly given that demand for cuttings keeps on growing.

Looking after our cuttings library is a full time job: the making, labeling, despatching and filing of them. As you can imagine it's a huge and expensive resource. The images below are just a small portion of our shelving. We also have a cuttings library in each of our branches...

Some of our cuttings

This post is just a reminder to be mindful of the cuttings you order and where they end up. Perhaps they can be filed and reused at a later date? Certainly our Account Managers are always happy to collect cuttings from you and return them into our system. Hopefully together we can make better use of cuttings!
