Introducing Cov-A-Blind™…

July 2021

Cov-A-Blind™ is an elegant colour-matched pelmet that conceals a blinds working mechanism and blocks out any daylight that would usually stream through the top of the blind.

It’s a simple but highly effective way of transforming a blind in minutes with minimal fixtures. No screws are needed to fix the brackets to the new or existing blind, you simply release the retaining screws which hold the existing brackets, slide the Cov-A-Blind™ brackets into place and retighten the screws. The Cov-A-Blind™ pelmet can then be placed into position, held securely by two magnetic plates.

Available in a range of colours and wood finishes, Cov-A-Blind™ is available in three different depths 70mm, 90mm and 110mm. You also have the choice to customise the pelmet by choosing the white paintable option, you can then paint the pelmet to match the colour of an existing blind or a rooms colour scheme. Watch how Cov-A-Blind transform blinds in minutes here.

Introducing Aura Eyelet Tape, exclusive to Hallis Hudson ...

April 2021

Aura Eyelet Tape (0153R/50) is an easy-to-use system for making eyelet-headed curtains using our Aura Clip In Eyelets (0154R/Col/36), eliminating the need for an eyelet press.

Featuring pre-cut holes, the spacing is already calculated for you to give a fullness 1:2 and ensures perfect spacing every time. The 80mm (3”) white Aura tape allows you to easily create an eyelet curtain and features 2 draw cords to draw the tape up to ensure pleats stay evenly spaced when on the pole.

Introducing Coats Terko Satin™ ...

April 2021

Requested by so many of you for hand sewing, we have now added Coats Terko Satin™ to our workroom range of sewing threads.

A corespun thread Terko Satin™ combines the high tenacity and strength of a polyester filament core with a cotton wrap, delivering the sewing performance of a continuous filament thread, yet providing the matt appearance of cotton.

The cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat even in the most demanding of applications. The glacé finish is imparted through a special polishing process which binds together the fibrous surface of the thread and creates a lustrous finish to the thread with enhanced abrasion resistance.

Suitable for all materials, but ideal for cotton and linen fabrics. To browse and buy at click here.

Introducing Dual Rise ...

Introducing Dual Rise… A brand new, innovative, and safe by design blind solution that will be an addition to our Professional Roman Blind system.

Child safety solutions are evolving thanks to the inherently safe design of the Dual rise mechanism, that has been tested and approved by Bureau Veritas. Thanks to the intuitive operation of the Dual Rise system has been designed so anyone can operate the blind: pull the front to make the blind go up; pull the rear chain to make the blind go down eliminating the need for hazardous loops or chains. See for child safety certificates.

Dual Rise allows you to create safe Roman Blinds with only a limited number of components that are both easy to assemble and install. Installation is simple and fast.

It is quieter and smoother than the traditional chain operated system and there are no cleats to fit to the wall ensuring minimal disruption to décor. There are no components to breakaway on the device which will eliminate the need for expensive call backs. Watch Dual Rise in action here
