As the market continues to develop and the consumer is seeking more and more personalised products, Brook International fabrics in the Home and Garden range find themselves being used for an ever increasing range of applications.
Products ranging from personalised cushions to wallpaper are becoming ever more popular. Roller blinds can now be tailored to individual tastes and designed to mirror both the home and office décor. Not being restricted to the home, even the garden is now getting a well-deserved make over, with deckchairs, cushions and parasols enjoying the personalised touch.
