Family & business entwined

05 August, 2015

Walcot House remains a family run business with the owner Samantha’s daughter Alice joining the team in 2013. One thing she was tasked with was to come up with some new ways of dying our paper twine to achieve a completely new and irresistible colour palette.

Twine is applied in-house to our Groove, Barrel, Combination or Bobbin finials and is one of a large number of bespoke wrap options.

We have always hand-dyed our twine on the premises to our own colour palette, but we wanted to introduce some more variation in shade and tone. Fresh out of school, Alice was keen to experiment!

More colours are constantly in development and Alice is currently beavering away concocting some gorgeous reds and oranges.

With the ability to now choose from over 30 subtle hues for the twine finial there is now a shade to complement every shade of fabric. Thank you Alice!

Measuring Guide

What curtain pole length do I need?

Walcot House measuring guide for curtain poles

Measure the width of your window (cm)

Add a minimum of 15cm either side, preferably more, but for full curtains or wide windows allow at least 25cm if you have the room, excluding finials (decorative pole ends).

Choose a stock length or cut to size yourself for non standard lengths (we promise it's really easy!)
    Helpful tip: Ensure there is room for your finials beyond the ends of your pole.
