Silk Curtain Fabrics & Fashion Designers

15th January 2015



Drawing inspiration from a range of eras in James Hare's history, this decorative collection celebrates the company's evolution from Yorkshire wool merchant to internationally renowned silk specialist.  With a perfect combination of classic and modern looks, the fabrics are ideal for curtains, bedheads, blinds, lampshades, cushions, wallcoverings and other decorative detailing.

Victorian:  Diamond Bouquet
Lavishly embroidered, this supremely luxurious fabric is based on a diamond brooch given by the firm's founder James Hare to his wife Mary Ellen when the business grew prosperous in the 1890's.  Sprays of flowers are picked out in dense metallic embroidery on a satin ground, with brilliant pinpoints of silver thread mimicking the sparkle of the original diamonds.

Art Deco:  Crystal
Art Deco heritage translated into classic contemporary style.  Inspired by cracked ice, the geometric pattern is woven in metallic thread on a sateen ground, with an intriguingly shadowed 3-D effect.

Mid Century Modern:  Brilliance
Brilliance takes the collection's diamond theme into a large scale contemporary design with a nod to mid-century modern in its strong colours and high linen content which adds weight and texture to a lustrous satin weave.  

Op Art:  Infinty Braid
 A new and refined take on the 1960's op art movement.  The bold, curvaceous design is defined in a textured silk braid on a luxurious silk wool ground.  

1970's:  Evolution Stripe  
Bold Stripes, a classic fashion story from the 1970's, are given new decorative potential for interiors. Modern colours, varying stripe widths and exciting weave contrasts add up to a must-have in contemporary living.
