Named after Loch Lomond area in Scotland, The Lomond check collection is inspired by the traditional tartan patterns Scotland has made iconic. The Lomond patterns are all woven (not printed). So each colour you see has been woven from a separate length of yarn to create the finished effect.
Made to be fire retardant, you can use this traditional look fabric on upholstery and decor for pubs and cafes, and knowing its regulated to British safety standards.
Making The Pattern
Made from a blend of 100% polyester to produce high quality fibres, these are bunched together to create a thick length of yarn which is used in two ways. Some is used as it is and some is cut to create a tufted texture.
The bottom, or background layer is produced using the bunched thick yarn. If you look very closely you can see the separate fibres. Some of the yarn uses a blend of shades in one length to give it a mottled look. The top layer of criss crossed lines uses the tufted yarn for the high and low light colours. This use of two types of yarn produces a great quality fabric which feels both smooth and soft.
Seven colour mixes to choose from, in subtle tones of grey, soft mid blues, teal and golden wheat. Scroll down to take a look….

Part of our extensive soft feel upholstery range, Topaz is a great all rounder if you are looking for a smart sleek finish, with safety and durability. Topaz is designed to be fire retardant and upholds to the British fire safety standards. You can even print off your own copy of the test certificate. If you are planning in interior for a public place such as a hotel or restaurant, fire retardant is not only expected, but in many instances it is the law.
Topaz uses a close clipped velour to create a fabric that balances in between Chenille and velvet. The feel of Topaz upholstery fabric is soft, with the very short pile giving a sleek finish. The textured detail shows neat lines as fine as pinstripe. These make up the thicker bars of 1cm across that run continuously throughout the fabric.
The very darkest tones. Grey, Charcoal and classic black. These tones are ready to work wherever you choose to put them. The classic black will, of course go with anything, but splashes of brights like lime or tangerine will look awesome.
Tangy tangerine and lime look fab together, if you like your colours contrasting. And that goes for Pink and teal too. Alternatively you could keep the colours with their closer colourwheel partners. Personally, I’m a big fan of orange and pink at the moment.
Decadent and Delicious
This trio of delicious colours are a homage to two of the finer tastes in life, chocolate and wine. Bournville is named after the dark chocolate produced in the village of Bournville in Birmingham. Burgundy is a historical region in France, famed for its wine production. Though the shades of wine and burgundy look similar, please note, wine has a slightly warmer tone.
The Neutral Zone
Two pale tones and two mid tones. These could all blend equally well with each other to create a neutral themed interior of warm oatmeal, stone and beige shades. You could also pick any one of these to add to the rich palate above as a lighter accent.
Grey shades all hold a the faintest hint of a color and this can determine what shade they are best to mix with. Slate grey is a lighter option than the deep inky tones of charcoal and grey and has a slight hint of blue to the mix, tipping it firmly into the cooler area of the colour wheel. The pewter colour of slate invites colour combos of pale to dark blues, purple and plum, aqua, teal and cool greens. In comparison, the shade of Grey in Topaz upholstery range shade is slightly warmer in tone and would work better with lime green.
