The London Transport Museum has recently started selling its famous moquette fabric — in the same way as you buy fabric from stores — by the metre.
Although it’s been possible to pick up odd lengths of moquette from the museum at their Acton open days, routine selling of the hard wearing fabric hasn’t been available until now.
So if you fancy decorating some old furniture, or the toilet seat lid with London Transport fabrics, then head here.
Not all the designs are available, but they have 18 to choose from at the moment.
Prices range from £20 to £60 per metre.
If you’re thinking of buying a load to turn into things to sell on ebay, read the small print.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
