New Arte prices - SeptemberSep 15, 2020

Please be advised that on Monday we will be sending out a new pricelist for Arte which will be effective Tuesday 22 September 2020

As you will be aware since the onset of Covid-19 the cost of freight has soared by as much as 300%. While we have been negotiating a path forward we have been quoting freight on every order.

We have been trialling freight from various forwarders and have now come to an arrangement with DHL which will mean the goods will come directly to you from Arte. The advantage of this is vastly improved lead times and orders are trackable - you will receive tracking details via email and txt from DHL. 
We will be implementing a two tier price structure...
• For goods sold by the roll: a price for 1 to 3 rolls and a price for 4+ roll orders.
• For goods sold by the metre: a price for 1m to 5m and a price for 6+m orders.

Please ensure that you quote using this new pricelist and delete the superseded one.

Contact our Sales Service for more information.

Houlès Spring/Summer 2020 releasesSep 04, 2020

Houlès has released four new collections: Leopard, Michael Aiduss, Palma and Costa. The first three are passementerie releases and Costa is a hardware range. Today I'll briefly introduce Leopard and Michael Aiduss as they are already up on our website...

Leopard is a collaboration with Houlès and Parisian designer Bambi Sloan. The result is a fabulous collection inspired by the patterns, colours and textures of animal hides. The range includes braiding, piping and a selection of fringing (see the brochure HERE) - everyone needs a bit of leopard pattern in their lives!

Leopard 2


Michael Aiduss is the eponymous collection designed in collaboration with the renowned architectural and interior designer. Inspired by his love of Greek peristyle and Hellenistic objet d'art the collection offers a huge selection of elegant braids. See the catalog HERE
