The Chaise Longue Co is pleased to announce we now supply Jim Dickens fabric for upholstery of our furniture. This collection of chunky chenilles has been stone-washed, leaving it super soft to the touch and wonderfully tactile.
Jim Dickens takes its name from one James G. Dickens, born 1901, the maternal grandfather of our company’s founder, who served to inspire in his grandson a lifelong fascination in all things textile and design. James set out as an upholsterer in the Black Country, mastering the techniques and skills of the craft before leaving the Midlands in 1931 for life in London. Here, he pursued a career in the textile industry working as a Fabric & Passementerie agent for the Art Textile Co. of Featherstone St, amongst many others.
